Chocolate chai sugar cookies are rich chocolate and spicy chai seasonings, transformed into soft, chewy sugar cookies.
Sometimes good things happen when obsessions come together. Did y’all know I’m a just a teensy bit obsessed with chai tea? Seems like I may have mentioned that a time or two. The only other things in life that come close to my love of chai is my thing for chocolate, and my thing for cookies. So combining all three of those little lovelies? That’s a whole lot of delectable going on in a cookie!
A sweet friend saw a recipe for chai spiced sugar cookies and tweeted the link to me. Aren’t friends grand? Always being thoughtful and stuff. The recipe she sent was based off a recipe from My Baking Addiction. If you haven’t been to Jaime’s blog, you really should. Girlfriend can bake!
Within a few hours of seeing the link, I was taking the first batch out of the oven. In the interest of quality control, I promptly devoured two–OK, three–of them faster than you could say “whiplash.” They were really good, but I thought they could be even better with a little chocolate involved.
So I made a few modifications and whipped up a second batch.
Clearly, I was on a mission. A glorious, chocolatey, chai-infused mission.
The resulting cookie is crisp around the edges, yet chewy in the middle; the perfect balance of sweet & spicy with a just a kiss of cocoa. In other words…they’re wonderful!
Give these Chocolate Chai Sugar Cookies a try, and you’ll quickly become obsessed, too.
