Have your chai latte and eat it too with these chewy Chai Latte Sandwich Cookies with creamy chai-spiked frosting!
From my Dirty Chai Muffins to my Cardamom Pistachio Coffee Cake, chai-spiced things and I are good friends.

The first drink I ever ordered from Starbucks was an Iced Chai Latte. I became so hooked that I bought a boxed chai concentrate so I could have it at home.

Before I got hooked on coffee, Chai tea was my morning drink of choice for years.

And from living in northern India for a summer, masala chai will forever hold a special place in my heart. Cardamom reminds me of sitting inside an orange pop-up tent in the middle of the Himalayas, enjoying cup after cup of sweet spiced milky tea.

My new assistant (have you met Lauren yet?! Remind to tell you about her.) and I made these babies the other week and could not get our hands off of them. We had to ziplock the majority of them and promise them to my yoga instructors to prevent ourselves from stuffing our faces full.

So yeah, we approve.

I’m currently traveling back to Boston after two and a half weeks in Michigan and Chicago. I am sick as a dog but can’t wait to get back into the kitchen after this brief hiatus. I’ve got some fun things planed for you all in January!

See you Wednesday 🙂

Chai Latte Sandwich Cookies

Have your chai latte and eat it too with these chewy Chai Latte Sandwich Cookies with creamy chai-spiked frosting!
  • Author: Sarah Fennel
  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 8 mins
  • Total Time: 28 mins
  • Yield: 20 sandwich cookies

Ingredients

For the cookies

  • 6 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground cardamom
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • scant ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • scant ¼ teaspoon cloves

For the filling

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1.5 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1.5 tablespoons chai concentrate

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl with a paddle attachment, cream the butter, cream cheese, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in egg and beat until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet, mixing on low speed until just combined.
  4. Roll out 1/2 ounce balls of dough (about the size of a large marble) and press slightly into the cookie sheet, forming a flattened disk. Bake for roughly 8 minutes, so that the cookies are still soft to the touch. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
  5. To make the frosting, whip the butter, cream cheese, sugar, and chai concentrate until light and fluffy. Place into a small piping bag and pip out dollops of frosting over the undersides of half of the cookies. Top with other half of cookies to make cookie sandwiches!

Oh yum! This sounds like just the biscuit I want to be eating right at this moment. I’ve seen a few chai spice recipes around recently, so I think it might be time for me to get stuck in!

Living in the PNW for a few months in college RUINED me for chai. Once you have chai from Seattle or Oregon, you can never go back. What’s your go-to chai concentrate brand? Love these cookies!

omg, I MUST try! I used the Starbucks chai back in the day. I forget what the name was but it was a yellow and purple box. So, so good.

i love how tender cream cheese makes cookies! and these sound like they have a good amount of spice- flavorful but not overly so (there’s so many chai’s out there that end up tasting perfumy to me).

I’m very afraid I could eat a dozen of these with little shame. You have good self control giving them away!

I’m also a huge fan of chai lattes–it’s just such a great blend of flavors! These cookies look like a great use for them, especially with that spiced frosting 🙂

These look a lot like whoopie pies, are they similar at all? I totally agree with you about chai, it’s one of my favourite flavours. These look so great.

No, they definitely have a cookie texture, where whoopie pies are lighter. But delicious all the smae!

Served these at a monthly test kitchen I host (mostly to give me an excuse to feed friends), and folks couldn’t stop eating them. In fact, I noticed a few being eaten even before the starters and mains were served … Thank you!!

These look really good! I love chai so much!! I don’t have any chai concentrate, but I do have a masala chai powder. Is there a way to substitute them? Or do I just need to find a concentrate somewhere?

Masala chai powder will most likely be fine! I would just taste the batter to make sure it tastes chai-y enough 🙂
