We're on the cusp of October and November. Perfectly autumn. It's finally (more consistently) chilly here in DC. In addition to scarves and boots, this can only mean one thing for me: Chai teas.
(Please don't hate me, but I like pumpkin... but not pumpkin spice lattes.)
On especially dreary (or stressful) days, I swap out a typical coffee with a chai tea and instantly my day is transformed.
I stumbled on this recipe on Some More Please for Vanilla Chai Cupcakes.
I wish I had the time and resources to make these right now... but it's probably a good thing since I'd likely eat the entire batch. At once. By myself.
