It’s hard to believe my little blog has been going for a full year now! How did that even happen? As this was my first post, I felt it was only appropriate to revisit it and give it a little update. Needless to say my camera skills were seriously lacking when I began this little venture. I used only my iPhone for the first 3 months. Eep!
My first pic!
This recipe remains one of my favorites. I am a serious sucker for Cadbury eggs. I bought a bag last week with the sole intention of making cookies, and before I knew it, they were gone. While that is not even remotely surprising, I finally made the cookies yesterday, and they were just as good, if not better, than I remembered. Since it is almost Easter, Cadbury eggs are everywhere, so lucky for me, it was not difficult to procure them (twice).
I adapted this recipe to produce half as many cookies. Since even that is too many for just me and my husband, I made 12 mini cookies and froze the rest of the dough. Freezing dough has become one of my favorite things to do with leftover dough because I love to make 2 or 3 cookies at a time when I’m craving something sweet. Though sometimes the dough never makes it in to the oven because frozen dough is the BEST snack.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
Mini Cadbury Egg Cookies
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) room temperature unsalted butter
- 1 egg
- 3/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup crushed Mini Cadbury Eggs
- 1/2 cup whole Mini Cadbury Eggs (enough for one per cookie)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl cream together the sugars and butter.
- Mix in the egg & vanilla until blended.
- Add your dry ingredients (flour, baking soda & salt) and stir until smooth.
- Add your your crushed Cadbury eggs, and mix in to the dough.
- Chill the dough in the refrigerator about 10 minutes.
- On a greased or silpat (my favorite tool ever) lined pan, spoon out your dough into about 1 tsp sized balls. Space them at least an inch apart. Place a Cadbury egg in to the center of each ball.
- Bake for about 7 minutes. They edges should just be turning golden brown.
- Enjoy with a glass of milk!
