Cha’s Spicydoodle Cookies
Cha’s been in the kitchen again with his human helper, Kim. Together they’ve created a scrumptious variation on the traditional snickerdoodle cookie using Global Tea Mart’s Chai Spice Mix, a spicy mixture of sweetener, and freshly ground spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, pepper, ginger and clove.

Crispy and spicy on the outside and softly toothsome on the inside, Spicydoodle cookies are the perfect accompaniment to a delicious cup of your favorite oolong or black tea. Oh and, so easy to make.
1 cup softened butter
1 ½ cup granulated sugar
2 ¾ cup flour
2 Tsp Global Tea Mart Chai Spice Mix (https://store.globalteamart.com/chai-spice-mix-p298.aspx)
2 Tsp cream of tartar
1 Tsp baking soda
½ Tsp salt
Small bowl of Chai Spice Mix and sugar to taste
Cream together the softened butter and sugar. Add the eggs and set this mixture aside.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, Chai Spice Mix, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
Add the butter/sugar mixture to the flour mixture and mix well.
Using a tablespoon or small ice cream scoop, roll the dough into round balls about the size of a golf ball. Oh, by the way, to answer all of those who’ve asked; yes, Cha does play golf occasionally.
The cookies will have a delightful spicy flavor and if you’d like them to be even spicier, roll the dough balls in the optional dry Chai Spice and sugar mixture. You might even add some cinnamon—if you like cinnamon, that is. Cha loves these cookies after his daily feast of bamboo leaves.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 8-10 minutes.
