Another recipe from Bon Appetit magazine (February 1986). This came from Foothills House, in Calistoga, California. I've never stayed there but from the online reviews, it's a wonderful little country inn with fabulous service and as of 2008 they were still giving these cookies to their guests every night. If I'm ever in that part of California for the night, I'm going to stay there! These are sweetly spiced cinnamon and ginger flavoured chocolate chip cookies rolled in powdered sugar before baking. I'm very glad the owner of the inn shared these with Bon Appetit.
