From the Bookshelf to the Kitchen: Chai Sugar Cookies


Lara Jean Covey is the Cookie Queen. Thanks to her, I baked cowgirl cookies last fall, and this June, I baked Taylor Swift's chai sugar cookies. "But, Emma, what does T-Swizzle have to do with Lara Jean Covey?" I'm sure you're saying. Well, I have it on good authority from Ms. Jenny Han herself that Lara Jean is a Swiftie and she baked Taylor's cookies in P.S. I Still Love You.

If you want to read about all the delicious food Lara Jean makes, here are some book links!

I don't think a cookie has ever smelled better.






Chai Sugar Cookies with Cinnamon Icing

1 pkg. sugar cookie mix (but Taylor also linked to the recipe she used)
Other ingredients according to cookie mix
1 chai tea bag
For icing:
1 c. powdered sugar
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. cinnamon
milk (measure in tablespoons until desired consistency)

Mix cookie dough according to the bag. Once fully combined, stir in the tea leaves from one bag of chai tea. Bake cookies according to package instructions. Let cool mostly. After cookies are done, whisk icing ingredients until you have a desired consistency. If you want it to be more of a glaze, add more milk. Then use a spoon to pour and drizzle over your cookies.


They taste so good!
