Spice up your melting moments with chai flavours. Another easy recipe from Ripe Deli. I make my own chai spice mix to keep on hand for tea or flavouring cakes, muffins, porridge. Just mix a Tbsp of each spice and store in an airtight jar.

Makes 15 sandwiched biscuits

1 c flour

1 c cornflour

1/2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp chai spice (mix of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, black pepper, nutmeg, mixed spice)

200 g softened butter

100 g icing sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 Tbsp milk, optional


80 g softened butter

1 1/2 c icing sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp chai spice mix

Preheat oven to 160C.

Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper.

In a medium bowl sift together all the dry ingredients.

In a large bowl cream the butter, icing sugar and vanilla until soft and pale.

Stir in the dry ingredients until a soft dough forms. Divide into 30 pieces and roll each one into a ball and place on the trays. Flatten slightly with a fork.

Bake for 12-15 minutes until just starting to firm up but don't let them colour.

Remove from the oven and leave on the trays to cool and harden.

Make the icing by combining all the ingredients to a spreadable paste.

Once completely cooled sandwich together 2 biscuits with a Tbsp of icing.
