Chai Cookies

Morsels of Life - Chai Cookies - Enjoy all the goodness and spice of chai tea in cookie form!

We had a party where we needed to bring some cookies, but I didn't have a lot of time right before to bake a batch from beginning to end, so I thought about making some where I could let the dough sit refrigerated and then just bake them before leaving. Another bonus is the dough's not complicated to make either - just combine all the materials and then roll the dough in some cinnamon (or skip it if you're in a real rush - works either way). :) Plus, chai! You could also freeze a batch of this dough, and then just bake a few at a time. Sometimes I like doing that for some built in portion control. :) Having the dough sit around for a while also gives the spices some time to mix and meld, giving the cookies even better flavor!

What do you think is a food that would taste good in another form?
