Nepalese Chai (tea)Cookies

Fragrant aromatic spices that tickle and  tantalise your taste buds in every bite.


4 oz  butter, softened
2 -3 tablespoons  cold black tea
4 oz granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 oz all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon salt


1.Add the butter and sugar to a bowl and cream  together  until well blended.
2.Stir in flour, spices and salt until just combined, form a dough with the black tea.
3.Wrap the dough in cling film and leave to rest for 30 minutes.
4. Dust a clean surface with plain flour and roll out the dough to approx 3-5mm thick.
5. Cut out desired shapes with cookie cutters, alternatively  for a more rustic look pinch walnut sized balls and flatten them in your palm before placing on baking tray lined with parchment paper.
6.Bake in a preheated oven 175 degrees C / 350 degrees F  for approx 15-20 minutes  or until lightly golden.
7. Remove from oven and immediately  transfer to wire rack for cooling.
 Serve with hot Nepalese spicy  Chai (Tea)
These cookies are crisp and crunchy they are not the chewy type. They are perfect for dunking.
