Instructions:

  1. Melt chocolate chips in a bowl set over simmering water; cool slightly. Beat butter with sugar and Chai spices until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined. Beat in melted chocolate.
  2. Sift flour with cocoa, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. Mix into butter mixture, on low speed until combined. Chill dough for 15 minutes or until firm enough to roll.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Arrange granulated and icing sugar in shallow bowls. Roll level tablespoons of dough into balls. Roll in granulated sugar, followed by icing sugar. Place, at least 2-inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
  4. Bake, in batches, for 10 to 12 minutes until just set. (Do not overbake.)


Tips:

  • Chai Spice Blend: 1 tbsp (15 mL) ground cinnamon, 1 tsp (5 mL) each ground cardamom and ginger, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground allspice and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) white pepper (optional). Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
  • Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
  • Rolling the dough balls in granulated sugar first, helps to keep the icing sugar from melting into the cookies as they bake and results in a better crackle effect.
