Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

This recipe was INCREDIBLE! My best friend loves chai so i made the homemade chai and these cookies for christmas. She loved them as did I! They resemble a gingersnap but are not as crisp and they have a very original flavor to them that is just like chai! The only thing i changed was not squashing the cookies with fork tongs as they looked prettier spreading out themselves and i baked them 15 minutes. You MUST try these cookies and the chai tea mix in this recipe! Read More

This cookie came out tasting a bit bland. It was spongy and did not mix well I feel like it was lacking some ingredients. Read More

I have a slightly different version of this recipe. I used 2/3 cup shortening with 1/4 cup butter, light brown sugar to compliment the Chai drink powder, sweetened it with 1/2 tsp cinnamon and added 1 cup Guittard White Chips. They come out chewy and crispy at the same time. Hard to do. The flavor is to die for. Read More

How cool is this? An allrecipes recipe within an allrecipes recipe! I've been a fan of the chai tea mix recipe for a while now so I was excited to try these cookies. They are pretty good. They are a hard cookie but they have great flavor. My dad said they tasted like pumpkin pie in a cookie! I think they are a lot like gingersnaps. I highly recommend making the chai tea mix - it's a lot more economical than buying the packets. I used an 1/8 cup measure to get walnut size and ended up with 35 cookies. Read More

These were great! I burnt the first batch so I turned it down to 375 and they came out perfect. I also added 1 Tbs of Almond extract. Caffeinated cookies how awesome. Read More

I think this recipe needs some work. The batter is dry not to dry to roll into balls though. I baked the first batch at 400 and they came out hard so I lowered the temp to 350 and that seemed to work out better. I think that this recipe needs some more liquid or less flour. One thing I did was melt some white chocolate and drizzled it over the top not only did they look nice it tasted pretty good to. I probably wouldn't make these again not that they are bad but they just didn't 'WOW' me. Read More
