Decorating Tips: For a beautiful, professional finish, use a piping bag to drizzle or spread the frosting onto the cooled cookies. You can sprinkle a little extra cinnamon or even edible gold dust on the icing before it hardens to add a touch of elegance. Alternatively, a little fondant chai-spiced leaf or flower can make each cookie as good as it tastes good.
