Day 3: Chai Snickerdoodles

Yield: 2-3 dozenn
Time (Start to Finish): 1 hour

¼ cup butter (soft)
¼ cup shortening (soft)
¾ cup gran sugar
1 ¼ cup flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 egg
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
3-4 Tbsp chai powder (trader joes, or add cinnamon, cloves, ginger, all spice and cardamom to equal 3 tbsp.)

¼ cup chai powder w/ added cinnamon (or 1/8 cup sugar with spices) for rolling cookies

1. Preheat oven to 350F
2. Mix butter, sugar and shortening in bowl
3. Add egg and mix
4. Add all dry (flour, powder, salt, chai) and mix with hand in bowl until forms a ball
5. In separate bowl put chai powder
6. Roll dough into 1 inch balls with hands and then roll in chai powder to cover.
7. Place on cookie sheet 2-3 inches apart (they spread a little) and bake at 350F for 10-12 min (when they come out they should be very soft, take out before they get too hard)

Rating: 3.5-4 strawberries
Notes: My roomies dug these cookies, but I need to find a way to make them taste even more like chai. I like soft snicker doodles, and these are nice and soft, so be careful not to take them out too late. I made them super fast and the dough is great to munch on!
