Market Mondays: Greenmarket Cookies

Greenmarkets aren't just for veggies. For this week's edition of Market Mondays, I made Greenmarket Cookies- using fresh eggs, butter, flour, and artisan pretzels and potato chips (along with a few other ingredients from home). The recipe for this chunky cookie is below.

Greenmarket Cookies (yield, 14 cookies)
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup cold butter
2/3 cup light brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup smashed pretzels
1/2 cup smashed potato chips
1. In large mixing bowl add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, cut in cold butter until mixture resembles crumbs. Add sugars and stir well. Add eggs and mix until dough forms. Stir in remaining ingredients.
2. Chill dough for one hour (keep unused dough in fridge while baking first batch).
3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
4. Put half of the dough on an ungreased baking sheet in 7 large balls, bake for 8-10 minutes. Rotate baking sheet and continue to bake until light golden brown on top, approx. another 5-8 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Repeat with the remaining dough or freeze for later use.

At $7 a dozen- easily the most expensive eggs I've ever purchased
Delicious creamy butter
Flour from Cayuga Pure Organics
Martin's Handmade Pretzels are some of my favorite
A recent addition to the Greenmarket- Mountain Sweet Berry Farm's potato chips- I used the brown butter variety, made from German Butterball potatoes
