Mini Cadbury Egg Cookies

Easter is a dangerous holiday for those of us with a persistent sweet tooth.  Everywhere I turn is candy, especially chocolate candy ... lurking, tempting, coaxing me into another bite ... well okay, so it doesn't take a lot of coaxing.  I'm pretty much a goner around an Easter basket full of chocolates, and the Easter Bunny always brings chocolate.  I've trained him well.

I love the mini Cadbury chocolate-filled eggs and as soon as I saw them filling up the grocery shelf I knew they needed to find a cookie home. 

Half of this lot went to the college girl while the other half disappeared quick as a wink.

Mini Cadbury Egg Cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 10-ounce bag Mini Cadbury Eggs, chopped or crushed

Combine flour, baking powder and baking soda and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter with both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy.  Add sour cream, beaten egg and vanilla, mixing until well blended.  Reduce speed and add flour mixture gradually.  Fold in chopped candy eggs.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto parchment-lined cookie sheets.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. 

Cool on cookie sheet 2-3 minutes then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.  Makes about 3 dozen cookies. 

With this recipe you could easily replace the candy eggs with other candies or chocolate chunks.  Either way, just add a cup of cold milk ...
