This recipe is perfectly flavor-balanced! I wanted a bigger cookie, so I made 2-in. balls, and the recipe still yielded 36 cookies. This goes into my permanent collection.

I like Snickerdoodles and I like Chai so I thought it would be great to put them together. I too bought cardamom for another recipe and it's a great way to use it up. The cookies never last long.

Loved these. very easy, but a little different than the typical snickerdoodle. I bought cardamom for another recipe, so this is a great way to use it up!
