Last week I launched our baking with kids series, and I’m pleased to say that there are so many little budding bakers out there.
So this week I wanted to start some Easter preparation by baking some Easter Cookies, as it looks like we will still be stuck at home trying to make the best of an Easter without seeing friends and family. If there’s a sure way to cheer everyone up and get the family doing something together these Easter Cookies are just the thing.
The recipe is our signature chocolate chip cookie recipe with the addition of Cadbury’s mini eggs but you can get creative and top the cookies with any little Easter treat.
75g soft brown sugar
75g caster sugar
Half teaspoon baking powder
Half teaspoon vanilla extract
225g plain flour
150g chocolate chips
A bag of Mini Eggs (some for the cookies and some to eat whilst you bake them, Cooks perks!)
Preheat the oven to 180c
Place the sugars and butter in a bowl and beat until smooth and creamy.
In a separate dish break the egg and add the baking powder and vanilla, mix until smooth.
Add the egg mixture to the butter and sugar, mix well.
Stir in the flour until it’s fully mixed in.
Add the chocolate chips and mix.
Place spoonfuls of the mixture onto a greased baking tray, leaving room between each one as they will spread.
Push 4 or 5 mini eggs into the top of the cookie dough, then place the baking tray into the mixture.
Bake for approximately 15 minutes until golden to give a chewy cookie or for 20 mins for a crispier cookie.
Leave to cool on the tray for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
It really is a simple recipe, but I can guarantee you a freshly baked batch of cookies won’t last long in your house.
Happy Baking and don’t forget to keep sending me your pictures.
