Twelve Days of Christmas Goodies ~ Day 10: Chai-Spiced Cookies

Holiday cookies with the aromatic spices of Indian Chai Tea. Delicious.

1 cup butter, softened
½ cup powdered sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons ground cardamom
1 ½ teaspoons ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons vanilla
2 egg yolks

1 ½ cups powdered sugar
½ teaspoon ground cardamom
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar with electric mixer on low speed until blended. Stir in remaining cookie ingredients. Shape dough by tablespoonfuls into balls. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until very lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack; cool 5 minutes. In medium bowl, mix coating ingredients. Working in batches, gently roll warm cookies in coating mixture. Cool on cooling rack 5 minutes. Roll in mixture again. Makes 48 cookies.
