Chai Spice Sugar Cookie Recipe

08/13/2012. This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure Policy.

I got this recipe a long time ago… I think it may have come from Oregon Chai actually.  I have been making these cookies for a few years now and it is perfect grown up version of a sugar cookie.

This has just a small kick of chai in it that makes it taste totally different then any other cookie you have had.  Once the weather starts to turn a little cooler, I immediately jump into a mild warm milk and chai addiction that usually runs through winter.  So I like to make these a lot in the fall and around the holidays because they are a perfect match to chai lattes, hot chocolate and plain lattes.

This is a perfect recipe to tuck away for those occasions when you want to take a little something to someone’s house.  Most people probably haven’t tried these flavors before in a cookie.

So the recipe is pretty simple to make and you can even freeze the dough so you can make these yummy little things at the drop of a hat.

Chai Spice Sugar Cookie Recipe
Recipe type: Cookie, Dessert, Chai Cookie
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 60
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Chai Concentrate (I like Oregon Chai)
  • 2½ cups flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • ⅓ cup softened butter
  • 3 tablespoons Oregon Chai
  1. To start on the cookies, add butter, sugar and egg to a large bowl and beat until creamy. Add the chai concentrate and beat until incorporated.
  2. Add flour and baking powder and mix well.
  3. Divide dough into two parts and wrap in saran wrap.
  4. Chill at least 2 hours or overnight.
  5. Preheat oven to 400.
  6. Roll out dough with a rolling pin on a cutting board sprinkled with flour.
  7. Use cookie cutters to cut them into shapes. (I skip this step and just roll small balls of dough and place them on the baking sheet and it works fine.)
  8. Bake 6-10 minutes until lightly browned.
  9. Set on a wire rack to cool.
  11. Add all ingredients to a bowl and stir well until creamy. Frost cookies once cooled.

*If you are not familiar with Chai concentrate, it can be found for about $3.00 in the tea section of most stores.  I typically see the concentrates on the bottom shelf.

The ingredient list didn’t include eggs but they are in the instructions. How many eggs are needed?

Oh thank you for pointing that out Kim. Just one egg.

About how big did you make your cookies and about how many did it make? I only ask because the recipe (same one is on the Oregon Chai site) says to use a cookie cutter and that it makes 6 dozen. I hae the dough made in the fridge and I just dont see it making 6 dozen…. haha . I am, however, giving batches of these cookies to the chai lovers in my family for the holidays so i was just wondering how many times I’m going to end up making dough.
