I really like the idea of the flavored sugar topping used in this recipe for these Chai Spice Snickerdoodles http://www.theppk.com/2012/09/chaispi...
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
I want to use this sugar mix for something else. Any other baked goods that use a sugar topping/crust? Will this add any flavor if I add this flavored sugar IN baked goods or other recipes?
I was also thinking of uses outside of baking like, in the case of these specific spices, using this sugar to flavor black tea, as opposed to how my family usually drinks spiced tea--black tea flavored with the actual spices (cinnamon, cardamom, cloves) and then sugar added to the hot tea. I tried the flavored sugar and it works--adds spice flavor to the tea--but isn't my favorite yet.
