This week Sarah whips up Chai sugar cookies (inspired by Taylor Swift’s recipe – courtesy of

13 ingredients
250g butter, chopped, at room temperature
110g (½ cup) caster sugar
80g (½ cup) Coles soft icing mixture
2 chai tea bags
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
300g (2 cups) plain flour
1 tsp baking powder icing
230g (1 1/2 cups) Coles soft icing mixture, sifted
25g butter, at room temperature
1 tbsp milk, or water, plus extra, if needed
¼ tsp ground allspice
¼ tsp ground cinnamon

7 method steps
Step 1 Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking

Step 2 Use electric beaters to beat the butter, sugar and icing mixture in a bowl until
pale and creamy. Add contents of the chai tea bags and beat until combined. Add
egg and vanilla, then beat until well combined.

Step 3 Sift flour and baking powder into the bowl. Use a spoon or flat-bladed knife to
mix until the dough comes together.

Step 4 Place dessert spoonfuls of the dough, about 4cm apart, on the prepared
trays. Use the heel of your hand to slightly flatten each mound of dough.

Step 5 Bake both trays at the same time for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Cool
cookies on trays for 5 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 6 Meanwhile, to make the icing, use a wooden spoon to combine the icing
mixture, butter, milk and spices in a bowl until smooth. Add a touch of extra milk or
water and stir well for a glossier consistency, if desired.

Step 7 Spread cooled cookies with the icing, then set aside to set, before serving.
