1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
2/3 cups shortening
1 tbsp. water
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. vanilla-flavored instant chai tea mix*
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 package (12 ounces) white chocolate chips
1/2 c. slivered almonds (optional)

* The overall flavor of the cookies depends highly on the quality of chai mix you purchase

Preheat oven to 350. Beat brown sugar, shortening and water with electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour, chai mix, salt and baking soda in a small bowl. Add to shortening mixture all at once, beating until stiff dough forms. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool cookies on pans for 2 minutes. Transfer to wire racks; cool completely. Store in airtight containers.
