I’ll try any kind of  “sparkling” recipe because I love biting into a crisp sugar crust. These Sparkling Ginger Chip Cookies from 101Cookbooks.com pack plenty of punch thanks to both ground ginger and grated fresh ginger root. The chopped bittersweet chocolate keeps them from getting too sweet.  I love that they are small in size, but consistently come out of the oven looking great. This recipe is so simple, you don’t even need to pull out the stand mixer!  Here’s a photo of my 2nd batch. One bite and you’ll understand why they’ve become a holiday staple at our house.
