taylorswift we need a recipe for these please! 🍪🍪🍪

MMMKAY— there are two ways you can go about this. The quick and easy way is to make sugar cookies from a sugar cookie mix and just cut open a packet of chai tea and pour it into the batter as you make it. Cause you’re busy and you want making cookies to be a chill part of your day.Pow. Done.
OR
If you want to make the cookies from scratch (that’s what I did for the 1989 Secret Sessions), you can use this recipe I found on a baking blog I like, joythebaker.com and I believe it was originally from a book called The Pastry Queen. If you want another great baking blog, I get a lot of great ideas from smittenkitchen.com too. This is a recipe for basic insanely good sugar cookies. I added the chai element to the recipe because I thought it would infuse cozy holiday vibez into the cookie and it really did. So I’ll star the part that I added in the recipe.

***after you add the egg and vanilla, cut one chai tea packet open and empty the crushed up tea leaves into the batter CAUSE CHAI COOKIES ARE ABOUT TO HAPPEN UP IN HERE***
I made an icing for the cookies, but they’re fine on their own. If you want to make icing for them, just mix 1 cup powdered sugar with 1/4 T-spoon of nutmeg, 1/4 T-spoon of cinnamon and 3 TAYblespoons <—-(I’m so annoying, it astounds me sometimes) of milk or eggnog if you can find it this time of year. The more milk/eggnog you add, the more your icing will become a glaze. But glazes are legit too so basically just LIVE YOUR LIFE.
I lightly sprinkled cinnamon over the icing once the cookies were baked and iced, but there are so many icing options you can pair with these cookies—I mean it’s out of control. If you’re really feeling like living on the edge, you can go ahead and add a few drops of food coloring to the icing to make it festive. No one is going to stop you.
Why?
Cause the bakers gonna bake bake bake bake bake.
Bye.

 A PARCEL OF FIC RECS THAT OTHER PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY REC’D BUT I’M REC’ING THEM ANYWAYS:

Baby You Should Stick Around (Febricant/neenya): I already rec’d this while it was in progress, but it’s finished now, and it’s really good, and the art is ADORABLE. There’s a quality of unexpectedness to this that I find interesting— often kidfic and recovery fic are two subgenres that tread heavily through used-up tropes, and this doesn’t. It’s quite fresh and grounded.

Memory (emilyenrose): This story reads almost as an act of resistance, and I really like that about it. 

When the Season Comes Around (theheartischill): A long, fairly gentle take on Bucky learning to be a person in the world, with lines scattered throughout that will jump out and smack you in the face.

ALL GOOD. That last one, When the Season Comes Around, is super new and ya’ll should read it. There are a lot of things I was meant to have been doing this afternoon during the time I spent reading it instead.

antique-erotic:

A truly spectacular set of Victorian pornography, twelve pictures I’ve collected from the same extraordinary, beautiful and intensely erotic session, well over a hundred years ago. I believe their connection is clear, in the soft smiles, the eye contact, the tenderness in the way hands lay on bodies; everything tells that this pair were lovers before and after this day on which we see them act out all their passion before the camera.
(Each picture from this adored collection can be picked out singly here should you want to take particular images not the full set as I have arranged it)
