A taste of India, serve these bite sized fennel seed and chai cookies with your morning coffee or spiced masala chai!


  • 150g unsalted butter (at room temp)
  • 75g soft light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 2 drops tea masala Spice Drops


1. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, mix the butter and sugar until really light and airy. Scrape down the bowl to make sure it's all mixed.
2. Slowly add the eggs and Spice Drops (if using) and scrape the bowl again.
3. Fold in the flour and baking powder.
Cover your bowl and chill for 30 minutes.
4. Preheat the oven to 200c and line two baking trays.
5. Use a teaspoon, to spoon out small dollops of the dough onto the trays. Make them no bigger than a 10p / walnut.
6. Cook for 8-10 mins until just golden. Cool on a rack. Eat fresh or freeze on day of making.
