READY IN: 30mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Create the sauce:
  • 1. Place milk and honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, reduce heat and add RawSpiceBar's Chai & Rose Spices. Simmer on very low heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Create the dough:
  • 2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Sift together flours, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
  • 3. Rub together butter and flour mixture, until resembling small breadcrumbs. Add sugar and combine ingredients.
  • 4. Create a well in dough and add milk & spices from saucepan. Combine all ingredients and roll dough into a ball. Add additional milk if dough is too dry. Chill dough in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes, until dough is cold and firm.
  • Bake & serve:
  • 5. Flour a clean surface and roll out the pastry until about 1/2 cm thick. Cut into shapes of choice- either with a cookie cutter or, if you don't have one, a circular glass rim.
  • 6. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and place the cut cookies about 1/2 inch apart.
  • 7. Bake the cookies for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven.
  • 8. Serve warm and, if preferred, dunk in a cup of your favorite hot milky tea.
