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

"I wanted to Thank You for the care that went into my last order. Everything was bagged and wrapped PERFECTLY. It really means a lot when I get a note thanking me for the business, and Nate- who wrote the note and I presume filled the order- did an OUTSTANDING job! I found you over 3 years ago while looking for specific spices for a Vodka recipe. I was so tired running from store to store looking for hard to find spices like Ras el Hanout, Fenugreek seeds, Berbere seasoning, or pomegranate molasses! Your fresh and potent spices, blends and waters make me look like a 'rock star chef' to my family- they THINK I know what I am doing! Thank you again for the choices you give to us and for a fabulous product!"
