Creme Egg Cookies Recipe by She Who Bakes
I love seeing all the creme eggs back on the shelf…it tells me Spring is just around the corner! Now this is a short term treat as this yummy chocolatey egg will disappear once again come April so get your stocks in now as our lovely Britt from She Who Bakes has brought us another fantastic recipe that will make your mouth water! Yep, that’s right it’s Creme Egg Cookies!
These cookies are easy to do and the results are amazing. They are baked with a Mini Creme Egg inside the dough and topped with the essence of a Creme Egg, Cadbury chocolate and fondant.
Don’t forget for best results, to chill the dough both before you put in a Mini Creme Egg and after.
What You’ll Need
- 125g cold unsalted butter
- 125g caster sugar
- 250g plain flour
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Mini Creme Eggs
- Bar of Dairy Milk
- Fondant Icing Sugar
Preparation Time:- 25 minutes
Cooking Time:- 12-15 minutes
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180C. Blend together the butter and caster sugar.
Step 2: Then add in the egg.
Step 3: Sift in the flour and add the vanilla.
Step 4: Once a dough has been made, tip it out onto the side and knead into a ball. Wrap this in cling film and chill for 15 minutes.
Step 5: Once chilled, break off a small amount of dough.
Step 6: Place a Mini Creme Egg in the centre and wrap it in dough.
Step 7: Roll this in your hands until you have a smooth round ball and you can’t see the Mini Creme Egg.
Step 8: Place your Mini Creme Egg stuffed dough balls on a baking tray and chill again for a further 15 minutes. Once chilled, bake in the middle of the oven for 12-15 minutes.
Step 9: When they are baking, get the toppings ready. You will need Dairy Milk and Fondant Icing Sugar.
Step 10: Melt your Dairy Milk in the microwave.
Step 11: Make up two bowls of Fondant Icing Sugar as directed. Leave one bowl white and colour one orange. (I’ve used Tangerine Sugarflair concentrated colour)
Step 12: Full three piping bags with your toppings.
Step 13: Once your cookies have baked and cooled, drizzle them with toppings, be generous!
