RECIPE - CHAI SPICED SNICKERDOODLES*

Hi guys,

who would ever though, that I would post a festive Christmas cookie recipe after Christmas, well you might be surprised like me, but I think that this recipe is not just for Christmas, as I guess most of you would eat those delicious and super easy and fast baked Chai Spiced Snickerdoodles over the whole year in company with a cup of freshly brewed Chai latte or hot Chocolate.... am I right or am I right:)?!


What you will need for these Chai Spiced Snickerdoodles:

3-4 tea bags of Yogi Chai Spice
160 g sugar (I've used Xylit)
150 g of soft butter (I've used this time slightly salted, which leaves a slightly salted taste, so don't use salted butter if you're not even a fan of salted caramel treats, as than it might taste a bit shit but otherwise I liked it even with slightly salted butter)
a pinch of salt (if you AREN'T using slightly salted butter otherwise it would be WAY too salty!)
1 Egg (Medium sized)
200 g flour (of your choice)
1 tsp. of baking powder 
alternatively you could add real bourbon vanilla 


After I took them slightly golden from the oven, they still have been a bit soft. That changed after I let them cool out, they become crunchy but as well a bit chewy.... well I might bake them again, to find out whether I made something wrong but I totally love the Chai flavor as well as the texture so they might be alright like they already are:)

I re-baked the Chai Spiced Snickerdoodles from the book - New York Bakery "Baking Christmas Cookies"* and would recommend this wonderful illustrated baking book to everyone of you who like to bake and especially Christmas (baking-)books like me!:)
