Cookies: Spicy Chai Cookies

X-Posted from my LJ, requested (long, long ago) by Dom. <3

These are basically from online, I just adapt them to my liking. As I've made them both ways, most of the people I know prefer them as slightly crisp dunking cookies rather than chewy -- perhaps because it mimics the cardamom cookies of old. It's best in black tea, or coffee with milk.

Spicy Chai Cookies
2 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tea bags of black tea (English Breakfast or Irish) cut open tea bags and grind leaves into a fine powder in a coffee grinder

1 c granulated sugar + 1/4 c more to coat outside of cookies
1 egg
1 c of unsalted butter, softened
2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, spices, and ground tea leaves.
In an electric mixer, beat together sugar and butter. Add egg and vanilla. Beat until well incorporated.
Gradually add dry ingredients.
Set aside a small dish with about 1/4 cup granulated sugar. Scoop dough balls out with a small ice cream scoop and roll each one in sugar to coat and place on baking sheet.
Press each ball flat with the bottom of a drinking glass or measuring cup coated with cooking spray.
Bake for 9 mins.
