So yesterday was my first official day of my Christmas baking. I had an idea in my head for a Chai sugar cookie with a caramel kiss on top. I got a little impatient and put the kisses on while they were too warm. I used a butter knife to "frost" the cookies with the melted chocolate and caramel. I drizzled melted frosting over the top for an added touch.
And with the help of the cutest four year old boy I know, I made a batch of turtles.
There are also cardamom stars in the works - a family tradition. I will post those pictures after we frost them this weekend!
Caramel Chai Cookies
1 tube refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 packet of powdered Chai tea drink mix
1 bag of Hersheys caramel kisses
Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix softened cookie dough with dry tea mix until completely mixed together. Roll into ball and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes.
Place kiss on top and let it start to melt. Using a butter knife, gently smooth it around the top of cookie.
Drizzle with frosting or melted chocolate if desired.
