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

How to Make It

Step 1

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

Step 2

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

Step 3

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

Step 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).

Step 5

Whisk together powdered sugar, nutmeg, and remaining 2 Tbsp. eggnog until smooth. Spoon over cooled cookies.

Absolutely love these super easy cookies! My co-workers and friends have gobbled them up and I will for sure make them again and again. I did not squish them down with a glass and they were still yummy but just took a bit longer to cook.

Delicious! I love the strong egg-nog-y flavor...they are perhaps just ever-so-slightly too sweet for me, so I will be able to stop myself after just one. A plus in my book! They are like biting into Christmas!

Frosting was delightful. I could not taste very much of the eggnog, however.

This is my second year making these. Last year they disappeared as soon as I could make them - every person wanted "just one more" at work until they each had 3 or 4. There is something addictive about them. I use Twinnings Chai Tea with fine results. I prefer the icing a little thinner and watch the nutmeg carefully, it can get to be too much. Mine need 10 minutes in the oven, 2 minutes on the hot sheets and then cool on cool racks.
