Chai Spice Cookies

Chai Spice Cookies

Every so often dessert doesn't need to be over the top. It doesn't need to be bold, it doesn't need to be sugary. It just needs to be the final trailing grace note of a perfect meal, nibbled delicately and paired with fragrant tea and good conversation. Chai Spice Cookies {page 433} are just one such dessert.

Full-flavored yet delicate, I can't think of a better accompaniment for a cup of sweet tea {my choice tonight, a nice Stash herbal in wild raspberry}. The cookies are soft and chewy, and especially delicious right out of the oven. They were quick to put together {if we don't count the amount of time it took me to clumsily grind the fennel in my mortar and pestal -- note to self: buy spice grinder}. Overall, I couldn't have hoped for a better ending to a fabulous meal.

Actually...what better ending than to end the meal twice. Be right back, the leftover cookies are calling me from the kitchen.

  1. Those look yum-tastic! Life tastes better with cookies to nibble on and a spot of tea and on to end the day.
