“I wanted to make a yummy cookie that had a spicy chai taste, and I love snickerdoodles; this satisfied my craving [: I Enjoy these with cold or steamed milk! Note: For the "contents of 2 chai tea bags" ingredient, cut 2 bags of chai tea, and empty the contents into a food processor, pulsing until the leaves become very fine.”
