Cadbury Egg Cookies
I have no idea what kind of chocolate they are putting in these Cadbury egg candies but why the hell are they so good and taste too much better than any other candy?! Feel free to add milk, smile-sweet, or white chocolate chips in with the crushed Cadbury eggs :)
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking sada
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup unsalted softened butter
3/4 cups brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cups Cadbury eggs, crushed
1/4 cup milk, semi-sweet, white chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350° and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until wet combined. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fit with the paddle attachment (or mix by hand with a whisk/silicone spatula) combine the softened butter and both sugars until nice and smooth.
Add in the 2 eggs, one at a time mixing between each addition.
Add in the vanilla.
Scrape the sides of the bowl as you continue to mix. Once the wet ingredients are nice and smooth and there are no lumps, add the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
In a sealed, large ziplock bag, crash the Cadbury eggs until you have small to medium sized pieces.
Pour most of the Cadbury egg pieces into the dough and continue to mix until the dough comes together nicely. Leave about 1/4 cup of crushed pieces in the bag. This will be used to top the cookies.
Scoop the dough into about 11/2 Tbsp. sized balls, placing them about 2" apart. Place a few of the remaining crushed Cadbury egg pieces on top of the dough.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown on the edges.
Let the cookies cool for 2-5 minutes on the cookie sheet then transfer to a cooling rack.
