With so many Easter Cookie Recipes, I love the simplicity of these Cadbury Cookies. An easy drop cookie recipe that everyone will love and there is no wrong way to make them. Even better!
Easter has so many great candy choices from Jelly Beans, to peanut butter eggs and more it's an endless array of fun sweet treats to curb your appetite. Do you have a favorite? What about Circus Bunnies and Rabbits those marshmallow treats that you either love or hate?
I have to say that Mini Cadbury Eggs have been a longtime favorite for me. I love to fill a snack size bag and place on the dashboard of my car while driving. The sun heats them up perfectly and when you pop them into your mouth they burst and warm melted chocolate is spectacular. Try it!
Shopping List for Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies
Let's get shopping! Take this list with you when you shop and you will have everything you need. But I bet you have most items all ready at home.
- Sugar - Dixie Crystals
- Brown Sugar - Dixie Crystals
- Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Bean Paste - Taylor and Colledge
- Baking Soda
- All Purpose Flour
- Chocolate Chips
- Cadbury Chocolate Eggs Mini
In this recipe I have used Dixie Crystal Sugars which I love. The fine granulated sugar is the best I've used and I love the rich flavor of their Brown Sugar too. Taylor and Colledge supplied Vanilla Bean Paste for this recipe. Their pastes have rich bold flavors which are ideal when it comes to baking and adding delicious flavor. Analon provided a wonderful Baking Sheet. The cookies slide right off without sticking and I love the silicone edges too.
This is a small batch recipe, meaning it will make about 24 cookies. It's perfect for the size bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs you can purchase. You can either use a hand mixer and large mixing bowl or use a Stand Mixer.
You know I love my Bosch Universal Mixer. For me it works perfectly and I'm hands free in the kitchen.
How to make Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies
Start by creaming softened butter and white sugar together. It's best to use butter that has softened for about 45 mins to 1 hour on the counter. Butter that is too soft will become mush when creamed.
Add egg, vanilla extract, and brown sugar and continue to cream until fluffy. The color will even change from a darker brown to a light brown.
Dry Ingredients of Baking Soda, Salt and Flour can be added a little at a time until combined. No need to over mix.
Hand stir chocolate chips and chopped Cadbury Mini Eggs into the dough. Do not try to mix these with with a hand mixer. The Cadberry Eggs have a hard outer shell and won't mix well. It's best to mix these in by hand. Trust me!
Using a medium Cookie Scoop place on cookie baking sheet lined with parchment paper and baked in a preheated oven to 350 degrees.
Bake for 9-11 minutes making sure to watch the cookies so they do not over bake. Each oven heats a little differently. The cookies are done with the edges are set and have only the slightest bit of golden on the edges.
Remove cookies and allow to cool on baking sheet for a minute before moving to cooling racks.
Store cookies in a sealed container or freeze for up to 3 months.
How to Measure Dry Ingredients
Of course it's easiest to use a measuring cup or spoons to measure dry ingredients however, did you know that cups can vary in size and measurements? They can, if you don't believe me go fill a measuring cup up with water and pour it into an identical size measuring cup. You will notice there will be a discrepancy between cups.
This can really cause problems when it comes to baking. Baking is a science after all. Recipes that weight ingredients will produce perfectly baked treats every time.
Here are the most common measurements when baking.
|All Purpose Flour
|Granulated White Sugar
|1 Cup Packed
|1 Cup (2 Sticks)
How to measure Flour without a Kitchen Scale
If you do not have a kitchen scale, let me show you a trick to getting a better measurement when measuring flour. When flour sits, it settles and becomes compacts.
Use a large spoon or whisk and give the flour a stir right in the container. This will add air into the flour. Then carefully take an overflowing scoop of flour using your measuring cup and with a knife level off the top.
Do not shake the excess off as this will compress and compact the flour.
With proper measuring techniques your Easter Egg Cookies will turn out soft and delicious every time.a Rafflecopter giveaway
