  4. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    So where does the name Chai Snickerdoodle come from? I only know chai as tea and presume snickerdoodle is just another word for cookie?

    • Lyne says:

      The spices in the cookie make the Chai and Snickerdoodle are often referred to as “sugar cookies” and they are usually rolled in a mixture of white sugar and cinnamon.
