Cadbury’s Mini Egg Cookies for Good Friday

I arrived home for Easter last night a little later than I had hoped. I had mentioned making squares for my mom but I was too tired and had to catch up with goings on with the family. So this morning, in an attempt to procrastinate my 25 page paper I suggested to Claire that we bake these mini egg cookies. I had been given a 1kg bag of mini eggs for my birthday, as mini eggs are my favorite candy. This proved to be too tempting for me and thus, I sent them to Kingston. There were just enough left here to make these cookies.

Add flour mixture in thirds. Alternating with the mini eggs. Chill dough for at least an hour. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
