I love chai spices, so when I saw this recipe for chai cookies I got quite excited. Why had I never thought of this before?!
Luckily enough, I had all the ingredients in the house already, so I got straight to work grinding my cardamom. My spice drawer is full to bursting, so I’m always happy to find recipes that allow me to have a rummage in it (in fact, I think I may have missed a good opportunity to use some of my new pink peppercorns here…)
The recipe is very straightforward, but I did find the dough a little crumbly, meaning that my cookies did not spread during cooking as they should have. After doing a little research, I realised that other people who had tried the recipe had suggested adding an extra egg to overcome this – I’ll give that a go next time. These cookies have a fairly short cooking time – mine got a little bit overbaked but they do taste delicious 🙂
