Day 6: Chai Tea Eggnog Cookies

Day 6: Chai Tea Eggnog Cookies

This recipe sounds like it would be a wonderful pairing to a cup of coffee.  I have not tried it, but it sounds uniquely wonderful.  When I try them I will give you a review.  Let me know what you think.


1 chai tea bag
1 (17.5-oz.) package sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup melted butter
1 large egg 
4 tablespoons eggnog, divided 
Parchment paper
Cinnamon sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350F.  
1.  Remove tea leaves from tea bag; discard bag.
2. Stir together tea leaves, cookie mix, butter, egg, and 2 Tbsp. eggnog until well blended.
3. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Flatten dough slightly with bottom of a glass dipped in cinnamon sugar.
4. Bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheet to a wire rack, and cool completely (about 10 minutes).
5. Whisk together powdered sugar, nutmeg, and remaining 2 Tbsp. eggnog until smooth. Spoon over cooled cookies.

Note:  Recipe was tested with Tazo Chai Organic Black Tea.
