Tea cookies. Might have to try a version of these.

While glossy sugar cookies and stylish Christmas bars get the glamour shots during holiday cookie season, my heart belongs to the quieter cookies, the buttery yet simple ones that are meant to lie beside a cup of afternoon tea and join the respite a tea break offers in busy days. These chai tea cookies, a riff on my old favorite of Earl Grey Tea Cookies, fill that spot on the tea saucer sweetly and neatly.
