For the 4th Day of Cookies I am sending you on an adventure over to one of my favorite blogs, 101 Cookbooks. The amazingly talented Heidi Swanson has agreed to provide us with our 4th cookie, and boy did she deliver! Her Sparkling Ginger Chip Cookies are real beauts. Heidi’s blog is always an inspiration. Not only is she a talented writer and cook, she takes such gorgeous photographs. 101 Cookbooks is one of the blogs that inspired me to start Lottie + Doof. Her natural, whole-foods approach never sacrifices good taste and every recipe I have tried has been delicious. In addition to her work on the blog and as a photographer, she also is a James Beard-nominated cookbook author (Super Natural Cooking). So, click on over to 101 Cookbooks and check out her recipe for these delicious Sparkling Ginger Chip Cookies.
Thanks to Heidi for the wonderful post and for inviting us all over to visit!
What will the 5th Day of Cookies bring? Check back here tomorrow!

I can’t wait to start baking cookies. I’m going to love these ginger chip cookies, but they are a bit intimidating. Your photos make me want to eat each cookie tout de suite. If there were a local bakery where I could pick them up, I’d be there.

The sparkling ginger chip cookies are absolutely divine. I found these last year and made them for Christmas and they were a huge hit! The sugar on the outside is my FAVORITE!
