While making this week’s grocery list, I came upon a recipe I’ve had in my collection that I have never tried before. And since today was supposed to be snowy, windy, and cold….which is basically FEBRUARY, I decided to give it a try.
Chai Shortbread cookies from Cooking Light is now a new favorite! It was very easy to make and the different spices make it a tasty experience. I also love chai tea, but it seemed like a bit of chai overkill to drink that, so I opened up the last of my Nilgiri Frost tea from Tozy Tea.
I shared my first experience with this tea from India back in 2016 on my blog and it’s still a special treat. I’m still impressed with the leaves, the flavor, and the story behind those hard working tea pickers who pick the tea at just the right time.
I used my Scottish Tain Pottery Thistle teacup as it seemed appropriate for some shortbread…even if the tea was from India. I do need to work on my dough log rolls though – not exactly round, but they tasted good.
Give them both a try!
