  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  • Whisk the flour, baking powder, and baking soda together in a medium bowl.
  • In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, allspice, salt and pepper. Remove ⅓ cup of it to a small bowl for later when you’re ready to roll the cookies.
  • In a large bowl using a hand mixer or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the room temperature butter and granulated sugar with the spices on high speed until smooth and creamy, 2-3 minutes. Do not skip this step.
  • Add the egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Beat on medium-high speed until combined, another 1-2 minutes, until the yellow streaks are gone and the dough is light and fluffy. Scrape down the bottom and sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.
    With the mixer running on low speed, slowly add the dry ingredients, beating well after each addition. The dough should be thick.
  • Roll the cookie dough into balls, 1.5 Tablespoons each. Roll them into the chai-sugar topping and arrange them 2-3 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. They will be soft and puffy. Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely
  • While they’re cooling, make the frosting. Mix the powdered sugar, eggnog or heavy cream and nutmeg together in a medium bowl. Spoon the icing over the cooled cookies and allow to set.
