Hidden Eggs Easter Egg Cookies \
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups AP flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Reeses pieces Easter egg candies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter, margarine, and sugar until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; mix. Combine flour, soda, and salt. Stir into butter mixture. This will be very thick. If you desire, split dough into equal parts for how many colors you want. Drip in food coloring and mix into dough. Using a cookie scoop, put dough onto baking sheet/stone. With the back of a teaspoon measure (sprayed with cooking spray), make a well in the dough. Place one candy egg in the well and shape dough around it. Be careful...you might have some eggs that like to peek out! With wet fingers (from water, please!), shape the cookies into the shape of an egg. Bake for 12 minutes. Don't worry...you might still have a few peekers! Remove from oven and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes before removing from pan to cooling rack. Place on a plate for the Easter bunny, or for anyone else who might like a cookie!, and let HIM find the eggs for a change and find the surprise inside!
wow these cookies look amazing! i think im going to make them for my family get together. thanks for the idea!
oh yum! I love Reeces eggs and the different colors are super cute
FPT - I hope they turn out! If they get too cool, try just a quick (like 5 seconds) zap in the microwave.
Nikki - Thanks! The colors were done on a whim!
Colors totally earn bonus points :P
