Easy Chai Sugar Cookies

Comin at you the day before thanksgiving with a easy sugary, cinnamon sweet recipe because THAT’S THE CONTENT YOU SIGNED UP FOR. Or maybe not, but here it is anyway.

& because I’m a straight to the point kinda gal, let’s just get right into it. I baked taylor swift’s variation on this recipe, (because obviously) in which she adds in a bag of chai tea leaves & an icing topping.

This recipe will make one dozen 4-inch cookies or two dozen 2-inch.


1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus additional for sugaring tops

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 large egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 bag of chai tea


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper or grease generously with butter or cooking spray.

Using a mixer, beat the butter in a large bowl on medium speed for about 1 minute. Add the vegetable oil. It may not fully incorporate with the butter. DON'T WORRY. That's okay. 

Add the granulated sugar, powdered sugar, egg and vanilla, beating on medium speed until each ingredient is completely incorporated. *THIS IS WHEN WE'RE GONNA ADD IN THE CHAI TEA. So, go ahead & cut open a packet & pour the leaves all in there. Aaaand proceed.

Stir in the flour, baking soda and salt all at once using a wooden spoon or the mixer set on low.

The dough will be soft.

 I froze the dough for 15 minutes so they were easier to handle.

I literally dolloped a spoonful of dough for each cookie- that simple. THEN press the dough evenly with your palm, and once they're all on the sheet you can generously sprinkle sugar on top of the cookie dough.

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes for larger cookies or 8 to 10 minutes for smaller cookies-- mine were golden at about 14. 

Once that's done is when you're gonna wanna bake the icing, which is just a mixture of 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 t-spoon of nutmeg & cinnamon, & three tablespoon of milk or eggnog. (I went ahead & used milk)
