The chai gives this cookie a kick while the eggnog topping shows a sweet side.

Ingredients

  • 1 chai tea bag
  • 1 (17.5-oz.) package sugar cookie mix
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons eggnog, divided
  • Parchment paper
  • Cinnamon sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Remove tea leaves from tea bag; discard bag.

  2. Stir together tea leaves, cookie mix, butter, egg, and 2 Tbsp. eggnog until well blended.

  3. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Flatten dough slightly with bottom of a glass dipped in cinnamon sugar.

  4. Bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheet to a wire rack, and cool completely (about 10 minutes).
