This recipe was INCREDIBLE! My best friend loves chai so i made the homemade chai and these cookies for christmas. She loved them, as did I! They resemble a gingersnap but are not as crisp, and they have a very original flavor to them that is just like chai! The only thing i changed was not squashing the cookies with fork tongs as they looked prettier spreading out themselves, and i baked them 15 minutes. You MUST try these cookies and the chai tea mix in this recipe!
Dough tasted great but the finished cookies were a shapeless and tasteless mess :(
Tasty, but skip the salt!
How cool is this? An allrecipes recipe within an allrecipes recipe! I've been a fan of the chai tea mix recipe for a while now, so I was excited to try these cookies. They are pretty good. They are a hard cookie, but they have great flavor. My dad said they tasted like pumpkin pie in a cookie! I think they are a lot like gingersnaps. I highly recommend making the chai tea mix - it's a lot more economical than buying the packets. I used an 1/8 cup measure to get walnut size and ended up with 35 cookies.
These were great! I burnt the first batch so I turned it down to 375 and they came out perfect. I also added 1 Tbs of Almond extract. Caffeinated cookies, how awesome.
I have a slightly different version of this recipe. I used 2/3 cup shortening with 1/4 cup butter, light brown sugar to compliment the Chai drink powder, sweetened it with 1/2 tsp cinnamon and added 1 cup Guittard White Chips. They come out chewy and crispy at the same time. Hard to do. The flavor is to die for.
Very tasting! Good recipe if your looking for something a little unique. They did come out a bit too satly, next time I would only add 1 teaspoon of salt.
I think this recipe needs some work. The batter is dry, not to dry to roll into balls though. I baked the first batch at 400 and they came out hard so I lowered the temp to 350 and that seemed to work out better. I think that this recipe needs some more liquid or less flour. One thing I did was melt some white chocolate and drizzled it over the top, not only did they look nice it tasted pretty good to. I probably wouldn't make these again, not that they are bad, but they just didn't 'WOW' me.
