Chai Tea Sandwich Cookies


Okay. Full disclosure time. These cookies are not my best work. Somehow they were still pretty popular at the office. But I’m a perfectionist…


It was really the buttercream that did it in. The original recipe’s buttercream did not come together, it was not white and fluffy and pretty, and it made me really sad, because nothing sounds more delicious than cardamom buttercream, right? I’m not sure what I did wrong, but that’s okay: I have included my mother’s buttercream recipe instead on this post, adjusted with a hint of cardamom. I know that it is delicious and I wish I had been smart enough to make that icing in the first place!


Also, watch out: these cookies are really, really sweet. (I think I may have been a bit overzealous with my fancy cinnamon.) I think they still need some tweaking. I haven’t decided if I’ll make them again, but if you do, share your changes!
