Chai Cookies – Original Recipe!

Here it is! The Chai cookie. My first ever (mostly) original creation that I made with help of the Christina Tosi Monthly course I’m taking all of January.

A little bit of the process of how I got to what I think is a great tasting, very dunkable cookie

Recipe: Chai Cookies
A crunchy spicy cookie, perfect for morning tea or afternoon snack. Suggestion from the author: pair with a nice hot drink for the perfect dunk.

  • 225g unsalted butter, melted and browned
  • (Spices measured in tsps)
    • 2 teabags of black tea (I used Welsh Brew tea)
    • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
    • 1.5 tsp ground clove
    • 1 tsp coriander
    • 1 tsp cardamom
    • 1 tsp ginger
    • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 250g light brown sugar
  • 150g granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2g vanilla extract
  • 260g flour
  • 3g baking powder
  • 3g baking soda
  • 6g kosher salt
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F!
  2. In a small saucepan, melt down the butter until browned. Remove from heat and add your tea and spices to the hot butter
  3. In the bowl of your mixer, mix the sugars and hot butter/spice until combined. Make sure the temperature of your bowl is not too warm, so either let the butter cool down for a few minutes, or once in the mix, give it some air.
  4. Add the eggs and vanilla to your sugar mix – this won’t cream the same way as the original recipe since your butter was melted, but make sure to give it a solid few minutes for mixing
  5. Add the flour until just mixed, take off the mixer and finish mixing with a wooden spoon or spatula.
  6. Bake for 12/13 minutes, and have with a cup of tea!

I’m not usually one for a crunchy cookie, but I’m super here for a dunkable cookie in some tea or a hot chocolate – and I have it on good authority this is a very good cookie for those things.
