It's a great butter cookie recipe that works! If you like to drink chai, this is the cookie for you! It almost taste like buttery gingersnaps.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1 cup Instant Chai Tea Mix
- 1 1/3 cups white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 cup white sugar for decoration
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, 1 1/3 cups sugar, and chai tea mix until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; blend into the creamed mixture until all of the dry has been absorbed. Cover the dough, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll the cookie dough into walnut sized balls, and roll the balls in sugar. Place the cookies onto greased cookie sheets about 3 inches apart, and flatten slightly using the tines of a fork.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, just until the edges begin to brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
