Cadbury Egg Cookies
Recipe By OurBestBites.com
- 1/2 cup Crisco (I use butter flavored)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 1/2 cup flour
- 6 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 10 oz bag Cadbury Mini-Eggs*
*If it's not Easter, or you (gasp!) don't like Cadbury Eggs, try these cookies with white chocolate or PB chips- they're fantastic!
Preheat oven to 350. You'll need to chop up those Cadbury Eggs. I just put them in a ziplock bag and bang on them with a marble rolling pin until they're sufficiently crumbled.
Cream together the butter, crisco, brown sugar and white sugar. Add in eggs one at at a time and the vanilla. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, soda, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder. Add flour mixture to the butter mixture to combine and then mix in the candies.
Drop onto a cookie sheet and cook for about 8-10 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack and try not to stuff them in your face to quickly.
