I was planning to post a recipe after I did some baking for my office Christmas party. Funny story. I was planning to make these Dirty Chai Donut Muffins but when I went to the store to get ingredients, they were OUT OF BAKING POWDER. Turns out, it’s a very crucial ingredient when making baked goods, and without it, your muffins will more closely resemble hockey pucks than fluffy muffins. After Sunday night panic set in, I was able to improvise and churn out some chai sugar cookies. They turned out okay!

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 3/4 cups white sugar

2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

1/4 teaspoon finely ground black pepper

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

What you do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a medium bowl combine sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, allspice and black pepper.

Remove 1/4 cup of the sugar-spice mixture, set aside to reserve for rolling the cookies.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar-spice mixture until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Beat in egg and vanilla extract, combine until fully incorporated. Slowly blend in dry ingredients mixing until just combined. Using a small scoop (2 teaspoons) roll dough into balls and then into the reserved sugar-spice mixture. Place dough balls on prepared baking sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Let stand on baking sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
