Chai Tea Cookies

We all know how much I love tea and coffee. I make my own amazing and sometimes out there coffee syrups. I also make my own blended teas! I’ve taken that love and poured it into a cookie (had to make that tea reference).

Chai Tea Cookies

I bought some adorable cookie cutters that hook onto your tea mug while I was in Spain. I wished I put a little more chai into the cookies as it was a little too subtle for me.

I dipped the cookies that didn’t hang on the mugs in chocolate and they were devoured in a matter of days.

  1. These look lovely. It still amazes me how little bakeware we get in the uk – maybe it’s just as well, or I’d be bankrupt

  2. Love the cookie cutters!
