Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar chai blend.

Place at least 1 inch apart on parchment lined cookie sheet and flatten with the bottom of a glass.

I love vanilla chai lattes, and I was really excited to find chai spice mix in the spice section of my local market. It's pretty potent stuff, much stronger n flavor than the chai drink mixes. If you can't get your hands on it, you can always try the mix but double the amount. My kitchen smelled absolutely amazing while these cookies baked, just like a little coffee shop!

i am looking forward to making these cookies!!! i absolutely love chai!! thanks for posting!!

I cannot wait to try this recipe! I love chai Thanks!.

A dash of local for every season
