I predict that some of you are going to yell, “Liar, liar! Pants on fire!” when I tell you that you can make these adorable and crazy delicious cookies using only four ingredients! I know! Four ingredients? Yessiree, bob! And, one of those four ingredients happens to be a handful of those totally addictive Cadbury Mini Eggs that somehow find their way into my house each Easter. How does that happen, I wonder?
These cookies really are one of the easiest cookies to make on the planet! I usually make this recipe using a chocolate star or a Hershey’s Kiss plopped in the middle of each cookie, but one day I had a simply brilliant idea! Why settle for Mordred’s Court (Hershey’s Kiss) when you can have the bliss of King Arthur’s Camelot in the form of those very British and far superior Cadbury Mini Eggs? (I realize that you would have to be pretty darn nerdy to figure out that British-y comparison. Um, sorry.) Anywho, this idea really did turn out to be quite brilliant if I do say so myself. And, I do.
You can almost taste that chocolatey center of those Cadbury Mini Eggs, all melty and sublime, can’t you. Honest to pete, you can’t get a cookie much easier to make and much tastier than this one right here. I dare you to whip these up and tell me you don’t have your own private Camelot right there in your own kitchen. I double dare ya!
Besides being super delicious, these cookies are super cute, don’t you think? Enjoy!
Recipe: Cadbury Eggs and Peanut Butter Cookies
~Prep Time: 5 minutes~Baking Time: 9-10 minutes~Yields: About 30 cookies~
1 cup peanut butter (not natural)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
Approximately 30 Cabbury Mini Eggs or Hershey’s Kisses or chocolate stars
Preheat oven to 350º.
In a large mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, sugar and egg. Mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon or a hand mixer. Form dough into balls, approximately 1 tablespoon each, and place on ungreased or silpat lined cookie sheet. These cookies don’t spread very much so they can be placed quite close together but not touching.
Bake cookies for 9-10 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately place a Cadbury Mini Egg or unwrapped Hershey Kiss or chocolate star on each cookie, pressing down slightly. Allow cookies to remain on cookie sheet for five minutes before removing to wire rack to completely cool.
Store cookies in airtight container. Resist the urge to sneak the partially melted Cadbury Egg from off the top of cookies. These cookies do taste best eaten the day they are baked. No problem there, I should think.
