How To Make Creme Egg Cookies

Creme Egg Cookies
9 March 2016

We have gone a little crazy for Cadbury Creme Eggs as Easter gets ever closer, and when I found this amazing recipe for Creme Egg Cookies on She Who Bakes I had to share it. It is a delicious cookie with a mini creme egg baked in the middle, and fondant icing on the top, and they look incredible.

You can pick up Mini Creme Eggs on offer at Sainsbury's* right now for 75p a bag, and here's the rest of what you'll need:

Ingredients:

  • 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

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Blend together the butter and caster sugar, then add in the egg.
  2. Sift in the flour and add the vanilla.
  3. 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.
  4. Once chilled, break off a small amount of dough. Place a Mini Creme Egg in the centre and wrap it in dough. Roll this in your hands until you have a smooth round ball and you can't see the Mini Creme Egg.
  5. 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.
  6. When they are baking, get the toppings ready. You will need Dairy Milk and Fondant Icing Sugar.
  7. Melt your Dairy Milk in the microwave. Make up two bowls of Fondant Icing Sugar as directed. Leave one bowl white and colour one orange.
  8. Fill three piping bags with your toppings. Once your cookies have baked and cooled, drizzle them with toppings.
