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.
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups Cadbury mini eggs, broken into large chunks
Measure and sift flour, soda and salt. Set aside.
Cream butter until fluffy, then add brown sugar. Beat for 2 minutes. Then add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla.
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.
