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

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.

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!
