This weekend I was able to visit one of my Best Friends Betti. While I was there we decided we should make the cookies Taylor Swift made for her 1989 Secret Sessions, Chai Tea Sugar Cookies with an eggnog frosting. I had made these from a mix before (Really simple, just add a packet of chai tea to the mix. Boom. Holiday in your mouth) but we decided to make them from scratch. I documented the process on my youtube channel (BowsByCarolyn) and Betti documented it on her blog (RunawayRebel). Overall these are some of my favorite cookies ever and are definitely worth trying!
Also make sure you go check out Betti's Blog.
Taylor Swift Chai Sugar Cookies Recipe

Taylor Swift's Eggnog Icing Recipe

1/4 Teaspoon of Nutmeg

Mix all of these together in a bowl and drip on top of your cookies after they've cooled. Taylor recommends sprinkles cinnamon over the cookies once they've been iced.
