With Homemade Chai Mix Spice
‘Tis is the season to spend time with your kids, to go out in the snow and build snowman, to laugh, to enjoy and most importantly to eat. So we decided to combine all of our favourite things about the season into one simple fun recipe to bake! With this recipe, kids can get as creative as they want with the toppings and make each one slightly different. Best part? They taste absolutely delicious!
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and baking powder.
Using an electric mixer or a whisk, in a large bowl beat together the butter, 1/2 cup cream cheese (not compulsory), and sugar until light and fluffy for 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
Gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just fully combined.
Roll the dough into two sizes of balls. 16 (1 inch, about 1 tablespoon) size balls, and 16 (1/2 inch, about 2 teaspoons) size balls. Flatten the balls so that they don’t round up when baking. Then generously coat with the chai mix.
To make the snowmen, place 1 smaller baller and 1 larger ball together with the edges touching on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough balls. Transfer to the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the cookies are just starting to set around the edges. Let cool completely.
Layer the cool cookies with the frosting. Place half a mini Reese’s atop the snowman’s head. Use the mini m&m’s as eyes and a nose. Use Sprinkles as the scarf. Let the cookies set in and enjoy!
