Eggnog Chai Sugar Cookies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by sarikat

This was originally published in "Southern Living" magazine; I have made a few alterations. I have used both Betty Crocker and Krusteaz sugar cookie mixes, both are good just remember that baking temps/times may vary. These cookies are sweet, spicy, and make me think of the winter holidays.

VERY easy and VERY good. Make sure you leave a inch or so between cookies as they spread. This will be a Crhistmas cookie for us from now on.
