Whole Wheat Chai Snickerdoodles

It was June of 2020, peak Covid-19 quarantine baking frenzy time. Teacup and I were chatting about fun cookie recipe ideas for masala chai, and our dear friend Hannah said "oh, like chai snickerdoodles?"

Um...YES! Such a fun twist on a classic American favorite. Their chewy texture, eggy richness and cinnamon coating has earned them a high ranking in the cookie hall of fame. Honestly though? While I get the appeal, I've always felt snicks were missing that "wow" factor.

My solution to the boring snickerdoodle conundrum, as for most things, is MORE SPICE! The basic cookie practically asks to be paired with chai anyway, so once Hannah put the idea in our heads, we had to do it right away. We definitely ran into some obstacles in creating these cookies for you due to the lack of baking supplies in our quarantine-shopping-wracked grocery store, but we pulled it together. We ended up grinding our own flour and sugar, which I recognize is really above and beyond the average baking project. Feel free to substitute the ground turbinado sugar with standard granulated, and any flour will work fine (just omit the milk if you're using store-bought flour or your dough will be too soggy).

I hope you enjoy this recipe, and be sure to comment if you made any modifications!

xoxo, Friday

Used the modification of granulated sugar and all-purpose flour. I also used ground Red Masala Chai as I had bought the tea before this recipe came out. It turned out really well!
