I made these non-gluten free about 10 times now, and they are delicious! I play around with the amount of spice each time, depending on how I'm feeling, and have yet to find the place where I have too much cinnamon and ginger. ;)

I do have to add a splash of milk to make the dough workable, perhaps because I'm living in a pretty dry client.

Yum! I found these a melt in my mouth kind of treat. I love the blend of the chai-like flavors. and truly loved how easy they are to make! Unfortunately, I must share with others. Thanks for posting this recipe. I'll be making these again.

These are heavenly! Made gluten free and used erythritol instead of sugar and they were so fragrant. Will definitely make them again! Thanks for posting!
