Vanilla Chai Meringue Cookies

I love the taste of vanilla chai tea so much that I make my own dry tea mix at home, as well as chai-flavored coffee creamer. This was just one more way to enjoy the wonderful flavor of chai tea, in an airy light, spicy cookie!

  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line 2 cookie sheets with foil or parchment paper.

  2. Beat egg whites with a mixer until foamy and soft peaks form. Add sugar slowly while you continue to mix. Add vanilla extract and beat until glossy, stiff peaks form. Gently fold in ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom.
