Vegan Chai Tea Cookies

This delicious recipe is easy to make and yields about 12 cookies. 

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup plain white flour
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 cup butter-flavored vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon baking powder (or 1/3 tsp baking soda)
2 tablespoons vanilla almond milk
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 tablespoon allspice
1 chai teabag

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 345 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. Cream the sugar and shortening together with a whisk. Stir in the vanilla almond milk and thoroughly mix.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Open the teabag of chai and pour the tealeaves in. * Mix.
  4. Add the creamed butter to the flour and mix until a soft dough is formed.
  5. Shape dough into a log and wrap in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate for an hour.
  6. Tear off small amounts of dough and roll them into balls. They will flatten and spread in the oven, so space them apart accordingly.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes or until they appear to be done baking (the cookies will be flat and their undersides/edges should be slightly golden-brown). You may need to cook for longer, depending on your oven.
  8. They will still be soft when you take them out of the oven - ease them off using a spatula.

* Note: you can brew the chai leaves, but since this recipe doesn’t call for many liquids, I chose to just empty the teabag into the mix, which just adds a bit of extra spice - delicious! If you want to try it, you can heat up the 3 tablespoons of vanilla almond milk and dump the loose leaves into the milk, letting it sit for a few minutes before dumping the entire mixture into the flour mix. The almond milk will retain a small amount of chai flavoring and give your cookies an extra kick.
