Creme egg cookies

Hidden inside.

Hidden inside.

Last year I made Eric Lanlard’s creme egg brownies. Thank heavens Creme eggs are not on sale all year round otherwise I’d be in serious trouble. I was looking to make them again tis year but also have been going through a bit of a cookie phase so I wondered if I could use creme eggs in a biscuit. Then I remembered these Double stuffed cookies. Could I? Should I? Why wouldnt I!!!!! Creme eggs hidden inside a cookie it is then.

125g soft butter

150g soft brown muscovado sugar

150g plain flour

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 egg

vanilla powder or extract

I pack Creme egg mini eggs (approx 8 eggs)

Icing sugar

yellow food colouring

Heat the oven to 180c (makes 8 cookies)

  • Line two baking trays with baking parchment.
  • Unwrap the creme eggs

  • Beat together the butter and the sugar, when well combined add in the egg and whisk again.
  • Fold in the flour, vanilla and bicarbonate of soda.
  • Take a table-spoon of the mixture and roll into a ball. Press the creme egg into the mixture and work the dough around until the egg is hidden in the dough.

  • Lay out on the baking tray. Leave space between the spoons of mixture as they will spread as they cook.
Unbaked cookies need lots of space.

  • Bake in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Allow to cool on the tray then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling .

  • Mix up three tbsp of icing sugar with just enough water and food colour to make a stiff paste.
  • Place blobs of icing over the creme egg to resemble the middle of a fried egg.
When is an egg not an egg?

No faffing around with twist ties and Tupperware. Just pop any uneaten cookies in a tin for tomorrow. If they last that long.
