    Chai Tree and Snowflake Cookies are cute Christmas cookies inspired by the flavor of chai tea. Chai is a tea which originated in India but has become popular worldwide. It is made by brewing black tea with a mixture of aromatic spices such as cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and cardamom.

    Start by making a cookie dough. First mix the dry ingredients together and gradually add to a creamed sugar and butter mixture. Chill the dough in the refrigerator before cutting out snowflake and tree shaped cookies. Bake, cool and decorate before sitting down to enjoy these cookies with a mug of steaming chai.
