Hello my people! Welcome to the first ever Cookie Week here on Brunette Collective! There is no better way to get in the holiday spirit than with some delicious Christmas cookies. This week I’ll be sharing a new cookie recipe with you every single day. Today is day one and I’m sharing one of my all time favorite holiday cookie recipes, Chai Snickerdoodles! This recipe takes the traditional snickerdoodle recipe and gives it a fun little twist with the addition of the chai spice. These cookies are a dairy free recipe, too!
I have to give you a fair warning, you will be addicted to these dairy free chewy chai snickerdoodles. During the recipe testing process, I definitely ate A LOT of batter. I regret nothing. Without further ado, let’s get into day one of Cookie Week!
All purpose flour – as much as I love gluten free baking, I haven’t yet tested this recipe with a gluten free alternative. I would assume gluten free flour would give you the same results, but no promises.
Ghee – I love using ghee as a dairy free substitute for butter.
Peppermint Extract – for the minty tang in these Christmas cookies
Sugar – while I love using coconut sugar, this recipe calls for regular white sugar. I haven’t tested this recipe with a substitute, so I can’t make any promises about results if you sub sugar for something else.
Pinch of salt
Some extra granulated sugar + chai spice – to roll the cookie dough balls in before baking
In a jar or other container mix together:
2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp ground cloves
2 tsp all spice
2 tsp cardamom
4 tsp cinnamon
6 tsp ginger
Shake it all up and store in an air tight container. This chai spice is AMAZING added to tea, coffee and other baked goods.
