These Chai Pumpkin Kiss Cookies have all the flavors of fall in one yummy bite!
- 1/2 cup butter, softened I use salted
- 1/2 cup + 1 tsp. granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup chai concentrate I used Oregon Chai Original
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cream of tarter
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 Tbs. + 1 tsp. Chai spice mix below

Chai Spice Mix
- 1-1/2 tsp. ground cardamom
- 1-1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
Cream together butter and sugar in a large bowl until smooth. Add egg, chai concentrate and vanilla. In separate bowl mix together flour, baking soda, cream of tarter, salt and 1 Tbs. chai spice mix.
Combine wet and dry ingredients, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to let dough chill enough to work with.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Using your hands, roll dough into 1 inch round balls and place on parchment paper. Lightly sprinkle dough with Chai Spice/Sugar mixture before baking.
Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Remove cookies and place one pumpkin kiss in the center of each cookie. Don’t touch cookies until completely cooled or kisses will puddle. Enjoy!
