  1. We use Chia ofen in scrambled eggs for sandwiches,salads and in breads but never thought of using it in cookies,thanks will try these over the holidays

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

    • 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.

  3. I love Chai lattes, and these cookies remind me of little delicious versions of my favorite drink – yum! Thank you for the holiday inspiration. I have soooo many cookie recipes saved, but I may have to bump this to the top of the list- thanks!

  4. Thanks for the recipe,we made these yesterday for the very first but never put the icing on.They are delicious with a cup for hot tea.

  5. these cookies have all the right ingredients to make them more than perfect for the holidays! Love that they have both ginger and cinnamon added and then to make these cookies even sweeter, the half dip into icing. mmm mmm mmmm! i wanna try these out for my family Christmas which we are doing next weekend 🙂

  6. I guess me and my daughter are going to attempt to make Christmas cookies this year, which is fine, but we are going to use royal icing for the first time and do some decorating, should be fun and messy..lol
