One of the challenge of early farmers markets is trying to figure out what to do with all of the delicious food there, even though the produce choices are limited to hothouse and storage items.
Here is a great cookie recipe that tastes great with local honey, local eggs, homemade apple sauce and dried fruits.
1/2 c apple sauce
1 cup honey
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
2.5 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups rolled oats
1-2 cups of raisins, chocolate chips or small pieces of dried fruit
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add apple sauce, honey, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour and rolled oats
Drop dough by rounded tablespoons 3 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in 375 degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool on wire racks
