I guess you could call me a cookie monster, I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like. I am more of a chocolate chip cookie aficionado, but I’ve really gotten into snickerdoodles lately. So yummy! While I was at target the other day I ran into some cadbury eggs, not the cream filled ones, these have a hard outer shell and have a chocolate filling. That’s when I got an idea! How about if I make a snickerdoodle and add in the cadbury eggs! The surprise in these cookies is the cadbury eggs and they are so tasty and perfect for your Easter table. Make these now! Go on. Hasta la proxima!
In a stand mixer cream your butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Mix until nice and incorporated.
Then add in your eggs and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
In a separate bowl add in your flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Whisk until combined.
Add in your flour to your butter mixture and mix until almost combined.
Chop up half of your cadbury eggs and add it to your batter, along with the other half of the cadbury eggs that you’ll leave whole.
Mix until combined.
Chill the dough for about 15 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile mix your cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.
Scoop 1 inch dough balls into the cinnamon sugar mixture and on to a greased cookie sheet (you could also use a silpat, or parchment paper).
Bake in a 350 F oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
Let cool before eating.
