Happy Easter!

These cookies are ....buttery, chewy, crispy, and most importantly stuffed with some chocolate goodness. Happy Easter enjoy!

  • 1 stick of unsalted butter softened at room temperature 
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup pastry flour
  • 1 bag of mini Cadbury dark chocolate Eggs, crushed ( I left some whole as well- you want a variety- whole, halves, pieces, and the crumbs!)
  • Sweetened coconut flakes  (optional)
  • Crush eggs! 
  • In your mixer add the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Mix until combined.
  • Add the egg and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Add the baking soda to your flour
  • Slowly add in flour mixture making sure that everything is combined. Mix until all is combined. 
  • Add in the amount of mini eggs you so desire to! Use the mixer to start and then to ensure an even distribution mix with hands. 
  • Create a large ball out of the dough and then spoon into balls and place on plate to chill. Roll half in coconut flakes

  •  at this time I placed the cookies in the freezer for about 30 mins
  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place cookies on pan 
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes- until tops are brown- the centers will still be a tad gooey if you add as much chocolate as I did :) 
  • Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes and then have self control unlike myself and move to a cooling rack. 
  • Enjoy warm or cool! (Of course a nice class of milk goes well or a nice cookie sundae or cookie ice cream sandwich :) )
