Ingredients

Directions

Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, chai tea, salt, cinnamon, star anise, cardamom and cloves; set aside.

In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter with both sugars, the grated ginger and the vanilla until light and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Mix the sifted dry ingredients. Add the chocolate chips and mix until fully incorporated. Shape the dough into two 8-inch logs that are 1 1/4 inches in diameter. Chill the logs until firm, 1 hour or overnight. 

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F and line two sheet pans with parchment. Take the logs from the refrigerator and cut each into 18 pieces, about 1/2-inch thick. Arrange the cookies 2 inches apart on the lined sheet pans. 

Bake the cookies: If you like a softer cookie, bake 9 to 10 minutes. If you prefer more of a gingersnap texture, bake 11 to 13 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely. 

Store in an airtight, odor-free container for up to 4 to 5 days. The longer they sit, the more you'll taste the chai.

Cook's Note

I love to use this cookie for ice cream sandwiches, especially filled with pumpkin pie ice cream. Underbake the cookies to ensure a softer texture.
