Chai Masala Snickerdoodle Cookies

We love a good snickerdoodle cookie, and our Chai Masala in these just makes them oh so extra special! The traditional cinnamon sugar coating gets replaced with a warm Chai Masala sugar mixture that adds just the right amount of depth in flavor. The deliciously spiced cookies are so simple to make and will be perfect on any cookie platter - or in your own personal cookie jar!
