So I am in LOVE with Chico Chai! I miss it so dearly. For those of you who don't know what that is, it is a homemade chai this women in Chico, California makes. You can get it as a latte in most coffee shops and the farmers market in Chico, and really no where else. Anyway, I found this recipe on some blog somewhere and deiced to make it with lose leaf Chico Chai! It is pretty simple and there isn't a lot of ingredients. It is not a very sweet cookie which makes it a prefect paring to Chai tea!
