This is the first way I made them. I smooshed the dough down a little then plopped them on top. They spread out a lot. The cookie was good, but not perfect.
Here's the recipe-
Cadbury Egg Cookies
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 1/2 c. shortening
2 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
5 c. flour
1 lg bag of Cadbury Eggs, crushed.
Mix butter and shortening together until light and fluffy, and then add your sugars, mixing until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well and then add dry ingredients. Mix well. Stir in Cadbury eggs reserving some to sprinkle on the tops of the cookies. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. Mine took 10 minutes and they looked a little doughy still, but once they were cool they were PERFECT!
This is the 2nd batch I did. Isn't it pretty with the colors coming through? I liked these better than the first and I loved the crunch the hard candy shell made. Mmmm...
It's still an experiment, and if I try something different and it's better, I will for sure let you all know. If you try something different and better, let us know! I'd love to hear what you create. Hope you are all having a wonderful week.
