chai and all things tswift.

in honor of taylor swift's genius new album "1989" i thought it'd be fun to share her chai cookie recipe! a week or so ago she shared this recipe and if taylor swift gives out a cookie recipe, you drop everything you're doing and make the cookies, okay?

i won't lie, was weary from the beginning. chai? i'm not much of a fan. glaze? i'm a perfectionist and glaze is just not my forte - so messy. you know what else isn't my forte? cookies. also, no chocolate? what gives. if there's no chocolate involved, does it even count as dessert? but if tswift says they're good, how could i not believe her? so i gave it a go and i'll never question chai or taylor's random recipes again.

ingredients - cookies
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 chai tea bag

ingredients - glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp milk (or eggnog!)

taylor starts with this sugar cookie recipe from joy the baker, but adds in the chai after the egg and the vanilla (just cut it open and pour it in)! genius. i used a small scooper and it made for the perfect size (about 24 total). as far as the glaze goes, i used milk instead of eggnog, but it was the perfect pairing for these cookies. just add a little glaze and a little sprinkle of cinnamon! seriously. the. perfect. cookie.

CAUTION: the consumption of these cookies may result in wild tswift dance parties.
