I wanted my first actual post to be a recipe that I have never tried before. At my previous residence, one of my roommate’s girlfriend made some oatmeal cookies with cinnamon icing. I tried one and fell in love. She said it was one of those ready-made-all-you-need-to-do-is-bake kinda thing. I ended up eating about 90% of the cookies that night…fact. I’ve never made oatmeal cookies so I tried looking in stores for them but never found them. Since I always bake chocolate chip cookies I figured why not try my hands at oatmeal cookies. I came across this recipe Chewy Oatmeal Cookies with Coffee Icing and decided to make it my own by substituting Chai mix for coffee. It’s pretty sublime if I do say so myself.
Follow the recipe for the cookie. They came out chewy, moist, and dare I say perfect. Take a look for yourself:
I followed the icing recipe exactly and only substituted one scoop of Chai mix and 2 T skim milk for the coffee. I used Trader Joe’s Chai mix. Here’s a picture of my icing in its ribbon-like consistency. In culinary terms that would be nape (pronounced na-peh).
I had to bake it at 350 for 12 minutes, unlike the 6-8 minutes that the recipe called for. And they turned out like this…
So divine! A little on the sweet side, but nothing a glass of ice-cold skim milk couldn’t wash down. I hope you enjoy! I for sure did.
