Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in 2X Pure Madagascar Vanilla Extract. In a separate bowl, combine flour, Mayan Sea Salt, Ground Indonesian Cinnamon, and Mt. Baker Chai Seasoning. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and stir until just combined and no streaks of flour remain. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface. Roll dough out to about 1/4-inch thick, cut into desired shapes and place about 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. (Alternately, roll pieces of dough into 1-inch balls and press to flatten onto the prepared baking sheet.) Sprinkle tops of cookies generously with Black Onyx Chocolate Sugar and pinch of Murray River Sea Salt. Bake for 10 to 12 min. or until bottoms are golden brown. Let cool completely on baking sheet before serving. Store in an airtight container.
