Hey friends! Happy Sunday 🙂

Do you love a good Snickerdoodle? Ever thought of using Chai instead of solely cinnamon? It works and it works really well! If you don’t know, chai is a blend of spices often used in South East Asian cuisine. It is a blend of warm spices like cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger. Now, I have a GF almond cookie on my blog which is super delicious. When I realized that I was out of vanilla to make this cookie but had almond flavor; a lightbulb went off in my head. So, I combined the flavor and texture of almonds with the chai; the result were these decadent cookies. They go perfectly with a cu\p of tea or coffee. You have to try this!
