With Easter just around the corner, for the next couple weeks we are going to bring you some delicious delights to get you through the holiday. A holiday based around chocolate easter hunts and feasting with your loved ones, theres nothing like a tasty plate of cookies to add to the table. These cookies are bound to be the talks around the table this season with the help of everyone’s favourite Easter treat, Cadbury Mini Eggs.
This recipe can be made with any of your classic cookie recipes with the substitution of Mini Eggs instead of Chocolate chips, M&M’s or whatever you usually use. Below is the recipe I used.
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups of Cadbury Mini Eggs
Before getting your cookie dough ready I suggest chopping up your Cadbury Mini Eggs with a knife, or scissors (which is what I did) You want to leave big chunks so don’t cut them too small.
Set the oven to preheat at 375 degrees
Combine your flour, salt and baking soda in a small bowl and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine your brown and white sugar, butter and vanilla then beat until creamy.
One at a time, add the eggs while beating after each addition.
Slowly add you dry ingredients while beating.
Once your dough looks fluffy and soft add your chopped Cadbury Mini Eggs. Mix in well with a wooden spoon.
Place tablespoons of the cookie dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes.
Cool in pan for 2 minutes and remove to white racks to cool.
