A few years ago I was on the board of our local PTSA and we asked parents to make goodies for a function, a plate of cookies appeared and then it disappeared. These were the best tasting chocolate chip cookies we'd ever had. Picture 10 PTSA ladies fighting over cookies! It took a lot of cajoling but we finally got the baker to give up their recipe and it ended up being a 17 year old boy! This is now my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe, I love it that much. Today I subbed Cadbury Mini Eggs for the milk chocolate chips. After making the recipe I decided that one bag of Cadbury eggs wasn't enough, I rough chopped up the entire bag but would have liked some extra to plop on top of the cookie dough. I hope you enjoy these delicious cookies, beware they are addictive! The secret ingredient is the cinnamon.
2 sticks salted butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
¾ tsp cinnamon (heaping)
2 large eggs
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 c. flour, (heaping)
2 bags Cadbury Mini Eggs, one for chopping up in the recipe and 1/2 bag for decorating the tops of cookies and the other 1/2 for the cook. (if using chocolate chips instead, use 1 bag MILK chocolate chips)
Cream all wet ingredients together and then add combined dry ingredients. Add chocolate at end. I used a medium cookie scoop and got 27 large cookies. 350 for 13 minutes
My rough chopped eggs
Nice big scoops of cookie dough, I should
have put an egg on the top of each ball of dough
but I ate the extras, shhh!
