Serve up a holiday themed chai party with these buttery, melt-in-your-mouth Fruit & Nut Festive Chai Icebox Cookies!
Made with Arvinda's Festive Chai Masala, they're perfectly spiced with cardamom, cinnamon and clove and will look beautiful on any cookie platter, jeweled with the red cranberries. These cookies have a delightful crunch around the edges with chewy dried fruits on the interior. Not to mention the fruit and nuts combination make them especially reminiscent of the holidays.
I love my Masala Chai with a buttery cookie for dipping into! As the holidays are usually packed with a flurry of activities, icebox cookies are the thing to stock in your freezer so you always have a tea time treat on hand with virtually no fuss.
For this recipe I kept the fruits and nuts pretty simply, basically using whatever I had on hand. Make substitutions where necessary and feel free to try this recipe with hazelnuts, cashews, walnuts, pistachios or dried cherries, they all work equally well!
Happy chai party!
