Ingredients

Cookies

  • 1/2 cup (4oz) unsalted butter  room temperature
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (60g) powdered sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 chai tea packet cut open*
  • 2 cups (280g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Glaze

  • 1 1/2 cup (180g) powdered sugar sifted
  • 1/4 heaping teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 heaping teaspoon cinnamon
  • tablespoons eggnog or milk

Instructions

Cookies

  1. Using a stand mixer, beat butter until creamed. Add the oil and mix on medium for about thirty seconds. Scrape sides and bottom of the bowl and add the granulated sugar, powdered sugar, egg, vanilla, and the contents of the chai tea packet. Mix on medium until everything is incorporated.
  2. On low, mix in flour, baking soda, and salt until just combined.
  3. Refrigerate dough for about 1 hour until firm enough to handle.
  4. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper or grease well.
  5. Scoop heaping tablespoons of dough (just over 1 ounce) onto your cookie sheet, 8 to a sheet (these cookies spread!). With the palm of your hand, flatten dough until it is 1/4-inch thick. For more uniform-looking cookies, roll your dough into balls before you flatten them.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the edges are just lightly golden. Cool completely before adding the glaze.

Glaze

  1. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and eggnog, whisk together until well-combined. If glaze is too thick, continue to add liquid 1/4 teaspoon at a time until it reaches your desired consistency. 

  2. Spread 1 heaping teaspoon of glaze on each cooled cookie.
