Chocolate Chai Cookies

 

 

 

It's that time in my holiday preparations when I am baking up a storm. Megan and Melissa are both home and it's great having them in the kitchen, even if it is just to keep me company. There are traditional recipes I use year after year, like our favorite Ginger Cut Out Cookies, but every year I also like to try a new recipe.

These wonderfully spice filled Chocolate Chai Cookies have a unique flavor, but could end up being a new favorite on the cookie platter. As I was baking these cookies and doing a taste test, (yum) after one bite I immediately made a cup of tea to enjoy with the cookie. Some cookies just pair so well with tea or coffee and this is one of them. I foresee a snow day in the not so distant future making these perfect wintertime cookies.

 

Chocolate Chai Cookies

2 1/4 cups flour

1/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 3/4 cup sugar

2 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp cardamom

1/2 tsp allspice

1/4 tsp white pepper

1 cup butter, softened

1 egg

2 tsp vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray baking sheet with cooking spray.

Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.

In a small bowl combine the sugar with the spices. Reserve 1/4 cup for rolling cookies in.

Cream the butter with the remaining sugar and spice mixture until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla to butter mixture and beat until combined. Blend the flour mixture into butter mixture in three additions. Stir until just combined.

Form dough into balls. Roll in reserved sugar and spice mixture to coat. Place on prepared baking sheet about two inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes. Cookies are done when top of cookie cracks. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!
