Chai Tea Cookie Recipe
I used Twinings Chai tea for this recipe as this is the chai tea that I regularly drink....the aroma of this tea is just so beautiful!
The first thing I did was grind the tea leaves.
Next I sifted the flour and then added the tea leaves and the spices to the bowl.
In another bowl I beat the butter, vanilla, sugar and cornflour together for about 3 minutes.
I then added the dry ingredients and mixed everything together until well combined.
I then halved the mixture and rolled it into plastic wrap. It would have been much better to use baking/parchment paper like Martha suggests but I had run out!
You then chill the dough until it is hard again. I kept mine in the freezer for about 1 hour.
When ready to bake, set the oven to about 350 F or 180 C or gas mark 4. Slice the log into 1/4-inch-thick slices and place on lined baking trays.
Bake them until the edges start to go a little brown and cool.
Enjoy these spicy yet sweet Chai tea cookies with a hot cup of Chai Tea!
Chai Tea Cookies
This Chai Tea cookie recipe is rich, buttery and is the perfect afternoon tea treat.
- 2 cups All purpose flour
- 2 Tablespoons finely ground Chai Tea leaves (about 4-8 tea bags, depending on the size of the tea bags)
- 2 sticks/ 8 ounce or 225 grams Unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup Confectioners/icing sugar
- 2 tablespoons Cornflour
- 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons Nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons Vanilla extract.
Whisk flour, tea, and salt in a small bowl; set aside. In another bowl beat the butter, vanilla, sugar and cornflour together for about 3 minutes. Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture until just combined. Divide dough in half. Transfer each half to a piece of parchment paper; shape into logs. Roll in parchment to 1 1/4 inches in diameter. Chill the dough until it is hard again. I kept mine in the freezer for about 1 hour. When ready to bake, set the oven to about 350 F or 180 C or gas mark 4. Slice the log into 1/4-inch-thick slices and place on lined baking trays. Bake them until the edges start to go a little brown, about 13 to 15 minutes. Cool on cooling racks then enjoy these buttery treats before they all disappear.These cookies can be stored for about 5 days in airtight containers at room temperature.

I enjoyed a couple of these delicious Chai Tea cookies for morning tea as I read a new book that my Grandmother gave me recently.It is a book called Aroma and it is all about aromatherapy, (which I am very passionate about; click here to see my recent post) in cooking!
