How to

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F and line a tray with baking paper.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt and chai and stir with a whisk.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until combined. The dough should be slightly crumbly. Mould the dough into a 20 cm/8 in log, wrap in plastic film and place in the fridge for 1 hour or until firm.

  7. Dip the cooled cookies into the chocolate and return to the tray to set.
