Almond Chai Cookies

Amber and I made these as grown up Christmas Cookies. She would agree, these are best made while sipping mimosas.


What you Need

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1-1/2 tsp ground loose-leaf chai tea
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 40 whole blanched almonds 

What you Do

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar for 1 minute. Whisk together flour, ground almonds, tea, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and salt; stir into butter mixture in 3 additions until smooth.

Roll by scant 1 tbsp into balls. Place, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Gently press 1 almond onto center of each.

Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in 350F (180C) oven until light golden, about 12 minutes. Let cool on pan on rack for 2 minutes; transfer to rack and let cool completely.
