Mini Egg Cookies
Little man's request this week was to do some baking with me. He wanted to make cookies and with Easter around the corner we opted for some mini egg cookies. This recipe is perfect if you are soon to have copious amounts of chocolate Easter eggs in the house and want to use some in some baking. Whilst it will help use up the chocolate. it will not make it any healthier. Infact it will make them much more unhealthy. However, once you taste these mini egg cookies, you will think they are well worth the treat!
You will need:
125g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
90g unsalted butter
75g soft brown sugar
75g caster sugar
40g demerara sugar
A couple of drops of vanilla extract
100g chocolate eggs (smashed in half with a rolling pin)
50g white chocolate chunks.
Preheat the oven to 180C
Mix the above ingredients together (keep half of the mini eggs aside.)
Melt the butter to make it easier to stir in.
Roll into a cylinder and cut into cookie slices.
Place well spread out on a baking tray covered in baking parchment. Add 3 pieces of mini egg to the top of each one.
Bake for around 10 minutes and allow to cool.
Lovely and chewy and a perfect way to use up some of that left over Easter chocolate.
