These Easy Creme Egg Cookies are just divine. I love pecan nuts so decided to combine these with dark chocolate to complement the yummy Creme Egg on these crispy on the outside and gooey in the middle cookies. Can you believe I started out last week trying to cut down on sugar and banned myself from eating any chocolate in a bid to shift the Christmas weight gain! But the call of the Creme Eggs in the drawer was too strong and I was just itching to make something new with them this year as it’s become a bit of a tradition to create a sweet treat each Easter.
As I’d already made Brownies and Fudge with Creme Eggs I decided it was the turn of the cookie to have a Creme Egg makeover. To say my family loved these is an understatement and I think they would rival the cookies in that famous cookie store that you find in most shopping centres. This recipe makes about 26 large cookies so is ideal for school bake sales or perhaps you are going to raise funds for Red Nose Day which is on 24th March this year. Easy Creme Egg Cookies are great for kids to make as they can help mixing, shaping the dough into balls and pushing the half Creme Eggs onto the top of each cookie.
