Chai Tea & Sugar Cookies II Food

recipe




What's the best thing to do on a rainy day in Autumn/Winter? Right, baking.
So I decided to share this recipe with you. Basically we're making some sugar cookies, which look very fallish but already taste like christmas. Beside that I wanna share with you a very easy chai tea 'recipe'.




Sugar Cookies




You will need..

  • 300 gr flour
  • 150 gr sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp vanilla sugar
  • 200 gr butter
  • icing sugar
  • food color
  • water

Directions:

  1. Mix together the butter, sugar, egg, salt, vanilla sugar and butter until well combined. And form a ball, now you will have to wrap the dough in cling film and put it in the fridge for about 1 hour.
  2. Prehead the oven to 180 °C.
  3. Get the dough out of the fridge and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough on a floured surface.
  4. Use cookie cutters, I used these halloween cutters, which in my opinion look really cute. Cut out as many cookies as you want and put them on baking sheets, but be careful so that they don't break. Put them in the oven and bake for about 10-12 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile you can make the icing. Mix together icing sugar, water and food color, use the directions on the packaging, so the color will turn out exactly the way you want.
  6. Finally it's time to decorate the cookies, note that they have to cool down completaly before this step. Feel free to decorate them with any kind of sprinkles or whatever you fancy.










Chai Tea



You will need..

  • chai tea bag
  • cinnamon
  • milk
  • maybe sugar

  1. Boil the water.
  2. Pull the tea bag in a large cup and add hot water.
  3. Let the tea steep.
  4. Meanwhile heat some milk, finally you can also use a milk frother to create frothy milk, but this is only optional.
  5. Add the hot milk to the tea and add cinnamon on top.
  6. Enjoy!




See you soon,
