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.
