Easter Cookies

These possibly have to be some of the best cookies I have ever tasted. Mainly because it combines two of my favourite things- Cookie and Cadbury Mini Eggs! I have already gone through three bags of them and have just discovered the white chocolate ones- amazing!

This was also the first time I have made cookies completely from scratch, to save time I usually just buy a pre-packaged cookie mixture. Anyway on to the recipe, If you would like to make these for yourself.

You will need:
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • a good amount of Cadbury Mini Eggs
  1. Combine flour baking soda and salt in a small bowl and set aside. 
  2. beat butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl (or mixer if you have one) until creamy. 
  3. Add eggs, beating well after adding each one. 
  4. Gradually beat in the flour mixture a bit at a time.
  5. Add the Mini Eggs to the mixture.
  6. Spoon, using a tablespoon, onto a cookie sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. 
  7. Remove cookies and place on wire rack to cool.
  8. Enjoy! 
I managed to make about 15 cookies using the mixture. The large size of the Mini Eggs decreases the amount you could make if just using regular chocolate chips.
