Chai Sugar Cookies Recipe: The Simple Chai Cookie Recipe That Won the Holidays

I needed one more cookie for my holiday cookie tray, but I was quickly running out of motivation to bake. Remembering a package of chai sugar I bought at a spice shop in Sacramento while visiting my daughter, I grabbed a couple packages of pre-made sugar cookie dough (don't judge). 

By simply rolling the dough in the chai sugar before baking, I created the cookie that won Christmas this year. The requests for more are rolling in, so you can imagine how relieved I am that they are so easy to make. Enjoy these delicious desserts as a snack, or even for breakfast (hey, it's chai!).

Cuisine: American/Middle Eastern
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: approximately 10 to 14 minutes
Total Time: approximately 20 to 25 minutes


Here's how to make it: 

  1. If making sugar cookie dough, prepare according to your recipe's directions. If using store-bought refrigerated cookie dough, roll the dough into balls or break them apart if pre-formed. 
  2. Pour some chai sugar into a small bowl. Roll the cookie dough balls into the sugar to completely cover. Place on a baking sheet. Bake according to recipe or package directions. Slightly under-bake for chewy cookies and bake longer for crunchy cookies.
