Chai Spice Oatmeal Cookies

 

As cool breezes make a wish and blow the leaves from the trees, I start to crave a cinnamon scented home warmed by an ever-baking oven. Rather than old favorites, I tend to make new recipes each fall to leave my lucky recipients guessing what exciting sweet treats they’ll get this time around.

On the hunt for this year’s perfect seasonal cookie, I decided to spice up the best oatmeal cookie recipe ever with some very special homemade chai powder. These cookies are crunchy, sweet, salty, warming, spicy, aromatic deliciousness. Go ahead and make a double batch if you plan to share these at a gathering – they go fast!
