Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons chai spice*
  • cups brown sugar
  • cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup room temperature butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Topping

  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, cream together butter, eggs, vanilla, sugar and brown sugar with a handheld or stand mixer on high speed until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  • Next, add flour, chai spices, salt, baking powder and cinnamon to a bowl and mix to combine.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix on low speed until combined.
  • Place the bowl in the fridge to chill the dough for about 15 minutes.
  • While the dough is chilling, add the topping ingredients to a small bowl and mix to combine.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge, scoop about 2 tablespoons of dough using either a cookie dough scoop or spoon and roll in the topping to coat all sides.
  • Place cookies on the baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.

Notes

*NOTE: If you don't have pre-made chai spice, use ½ teaspoon ground ginger, ½ teaspoon ground cardamom, and ¼ teaspoon ground cloves instead.
