These simple drop cookies make a truly impressive treat to serve alongside tea or coffee. They have a sandy, shortbread-like texture that's great for dunking.



Ingredients

Notes

*Mt. Baker Chai Spice Seasoning can be substituted with 1 1/2 tsp. Baking Spice plus 3/4 tsp. ground cardamom.

Directions

For the cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter with sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl until well blended. Stir in flour, salt, tea and spices until combined. (Tip: The dough should come together easily; if it seems to crumbly, add 1 tsp. cold water at a time until it comes together.) Scoop dough into heaping teaspoons or tablespoons (depending on the size cookies you want) and roll into balls. Place balls about an inch apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Press down lightly to flatten. Bake until lightly golden, about 10 to15 min. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 min. and then transfer to cooling rack.

For the glaze: Stir powdered sugar, water and extract together in a small bowl. Spread glaze on top of completely cooled cookies, then sprinkle with tea leaves for garnish. Let glaze set for 5 to 10 min. before serving cookies. #HolidayCookies
