Chai, the Indian tea drink that so many of us enjoy as lattes from Starbucks, is just begging to be used in baked goods. While it's great as a beverage, the medley of spices that make chai what it is -- ranging from a little bit to a lot of green cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, star anise, fennel seeds, peppercorn, nutmeg and cloves -- translate beautifully into food.
Cookies and cupcakes and ice cream all taste wonderful -- and just like fall -- when whipped up with traditional chia spices. Since the holidays are approaching, it's time to get as many foods tasting like a warming cup of chai as we can. And that's exactly what we have you for today.
