Chai Latte Cookies

Chai Latte Cookies

This last Saturday was my final baking day before Christmas. I spent eleven hours baking and baking, until I had enough cookies to fill a plate for many of our close friends–and then some! It was very tiring, but I always enjoy the process of creating homemade gifts. It feels like you’re offering your loved ones a little piece of yourself!

My new favorite cookie recipe this season is one I’ve been working on for a while, Chai Latte Cookies. These little chai sandwich cookies are ultra tender with a creamy spice flavor and a dollop of cardamom vanilla frosting inside. Mmmmmmmmm.

Hopefully one of these will become YOUR new favorite cookie. Peace on Earth and Goodwill to ALL!

    Wow, I can't believe you made all these cookies! I wish I was one of the lucky recipients. I thought I did a lot of baking with just a few cookies and a couple brownies. :)

    That's quite a line-up and a marathon! You do have stamina. I love those coconut ginger macaroons. Merry Christmas to you and your family, Sommer.

    Hi Sommer, I did get your message and I left mine under your Coffee Machine Giveaway.

    (Angie's Recipes said… Sommer, thanks for the message! I am so glad to know that you enjoyed the cookies too. I actually baked some more today as the first two batches were all gone. And sure you can use the cookie photos from my blog. :-)) Thanks again.
    Just tweeted your giveaway :-))

    All of those cookies look so delicious. If you need any last minute ideas, you should check out the fun creations I've been making this week. The Nutella with sea salt sounds particularly delicious to me this morning. Mmmm. I love sea salt, it makes just about anything better!

    What a line up with great cookies for Christmas! Now, what will I make,…I wonder,…!!

  14. sara @ CaffeInaposted December 23, 2010 at 3:56 pm Reply

    I would die for those dulce de leche and nutella thumbprints! Or, I would move close to you so I could get some. Happy holidays Sommer!

  15. Carolynposted December 23, 2010 at 4:41 pm Reply

    Argh, I so wanted that coffee maker! Ah well, I shall survive. I'd be happy with one or two (or ten) of your cookies!

  20. Table Talkposted December 23, 2010 at 7:08 pm Reply

    We do the same cookie baking marathon approach…I guess I feel like as long as we are making a mess in the kitchen, we may as well make a really big mess all at once. Besides, that way you have all of your favorite cookies on one plate to sample the week before Christmas.
    I love the cayenne in the caramel corn!
    Merry Christmas~

    All the cookies look fantastic, but the doggie ones still are what put the biggest smile on my face. :)

  22. Christineposted December 23, 2010 at 7:46 pm Reply

    Great recipes- yum!
    If you happen to have time to respond to this- do you have a good brining recipe? You're the only person I know that brines. I am thinking of attempting that for Christmas- yikes. :)
    First step- thawing the bird. Wish me luck.

  23. A SPICY PERSPECTIVEposted December 23, 2010 at 8:01 pm Reply

    Hey Christine~ Could you email me what you're planning to brine? I use different mixtures depending on what's getting a soak! ;)

    Hey Sommer, this all looks so good, especially since my stomach is empty;-)! Probably shouldn't look at the cookies too long. Those stars are calling out to me…

    WHat delicious and delectable fun! I so wanted to participate – and I have many many posts with my gorgeous Christmas cookies – but didn't make ONE or anything this year. I haven't been well – the first year, ever!!!
    And, there is always next year!
    I have so many more to post, and I love this idea!!!

    Thank you, I have recently been searching for information about this topic for ages and yours is the best I have discovered so far.

  39. Shannonposted December 1, 2012 at 12:01 pm Reply

    Do the Chai Latte cookies freeze well? I really want to try them and also have a cookie exchange coming up in 2 weeks.

    • Sommerposted December 2, 2012 at 2:40 pm Reply

      Hi Shannon! You know, they never last long enough to stick them in the freezer at my house. I’m sure the cookies would be fine in the freezer, but you may want to make the filling right before the event–just to be safe.

      • Barbaraposted December 13, 2012 at 8:39 pm

        I really want to make these for my cookies swap–do they need to be refrigerated though???

      • Sommerposted December 13, 2012 at 9:34 pm

        Hi Barbara, If you are going to make these several days in advance I would refrigerate them. But if it’s just a day or two, they’ll be fine. :)

      I got mine at Trader Joe’s – it’s just instant chai mix (that you can stir into milk or water to make a chai latte drink). Cheap and delish…

  42. Samantha Nposted March 25, 2014 at 9:03 pm Reply

    Sommer, I had to comment – these are wonderful!! I’ve made them twice now, once as a practice round (and my boyfriend demolished them), then again for a cookie swap at work. They were declared delicious by all…somewhat time intensive, but not difficult, and such a unique flavor. Thank you for the recipe, these are a new favorite!
