Chai Spice Sugar Cookies

Chai Spice Sugar Cookies

As fall transitions into colder weather (I won’t say the “W” word), I find myself digging out my baking supplies and cranking up the oven. There is just something about this time of year that really says “baking weather”. It’s a huge bonus that my 2.5 (almost 3 year-old) loves to help me bake anything, especially cookies.

I’m sharing an adaptation of my favorite sugar cookie recipe. The addition of chai spices will warm anyone up from the inside out… they are delightful! One of my favorite Starbucks drinks will always be a chai spice latte, the perfect combination of creaminess, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and a hint of pepper. For me it is everything I love about the holidays in one sip. While this recipe can be easily made with a pre-mixed (store bought) Chai spice, I had all these spices already in my cabinet so I mixed my own.

I hope you enjoy these while you’re spending time with loved ones, warming up the kitchen and making heart-warming memories!  Speaking of heart-warming memories, one of my favorite photos from this fall season is of my two favorite boys (let’s face it my hubby is just a big kid).  I’m so thankful for a safe harvest season and that it is finally over!  Some {unseasonal} rainy weather made it a challenge to be out in the fields, and the only thing worse than a wet, cold Fall is a farmer stuck inside because of the weather! 😉

Wishing you a happy holiday season!  Xoxo,

Erin
