Chai Spice Icing Glaze
Hi Everyone, I have a secret mission to get Chai-related recipes on the blog. I love the flavor of Chai/Chai Spice in everything from teas, to lattes and desserts.
This Chai Spice Icing Glaze is a great addition to the tops of your holiday cookies as an icing or a glaze over a freshly baked quick bread.
I can see it as a way to level up French toast, cinnamon buns/rolls, sweet breads or a piece of cake and why not stir it into sweeten & spice up your coffee?
This recipe is vegan, there’s no milk or cream as in a traditional glaze or icing. This recipe uses Chai tea! It uses 2-3 tablespoons to be exact, depending on how runny you want it.
For cookies, perhaps less so, for a quick bread use the full 3 tablespoons or more if you need it.
I show that you can use it to dress up your morning toast in the pictures in this post for a slice of toast that has a cinnamon bun flavor without the effort!

I use a simple lidded jar, like this old jam jar or a mason jar to keep it in.
