Chai Chocolate Chip Cookies
The theme this month is Wake Up From Winter with Coffee and Tea. I like both beverages but I can’t tolerate caffeine, does crazy things to me and I am already a little nutty. So I stick with non caffeinated products but I do like a bit of chocolate in my life I have to admit!!
I was given these wonderful spices for as a gift from my girlfriend Rina for baking. Unique spices, like spiced vanilla sugar, granulated orange peel and Chai Spice Baking Blend. Well, I cracked that Chai open and was so in love with the aroma!! I know how popular Chai tea is but I haven’t had one as they are always caffeinated. It would be a great spice to add to chocolate chip cookies. So off I went to make them!!
I love chocolate chip cookies and I just upped them with that delicious chai spice.
Crispy edges and soft centers make these cookies a delight!!
- 1 cup softened butter
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ½ tsp. salt

- Preheat oven to 375F. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars together until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, Chai spice and salt. Gradually blend into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop from a small spoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet or use parchment paper or Silpat liners. Bake 10-12 min. until golden brown.
