Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies, Take 2

I first made these cookies about this time last year when the grocery shelves were beginning to fill up with Easter candy.  And here we are again, surrounded by candy.  It's the chocolate varieties that torture me ...

So I was convinced I should try this cookie recipe again.  You can easily take your own favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and simply substitute the mini eggs for the chocolate chips.  But here is my version:

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

Combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda.  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 and continue mixing until well blended.  Reduce speed and add flour mixture gradually.  Stir in crushed candy.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto parchment-lined cookie sheets.  Bake at 350 degrees 12-15 minutes until lightly browned.  Cool on cookie sheet 2-3 minutes then transfer cookies to wire rack to cool completely.

You should end up with about 4 dozen cookies.
