Chai Cookies

We'll be totally honest with you, this is a selfish pick.  Visions of an iced dirty chai latte from Cartel were stuck in our head when we stumbled upon these beautiful cookies -- and now we want cookies. The second we have a free moment, we're popping a batch of these babies in the oven. We might even add a kick of coffee. Check out the recipe here
