Between January to April, something very special happens in supermarkets up and down the country; Creme Eggs invade!

I love Creme Eggs and what’s more, I love baking with them. Last year was all about the Creme Egg brownie. All naughty, sexy and gooey. But 2015 is the year of the cookie and as such, I felt it was high time for a Creme Egg Cookie to take centre stage!

These cookies are easy to do and the results are amazing. They are baked with a Mini Creme Egg inside the dough and topped with the essence of a Creme Egg, Cadbury chocolate and fondant.

Don’t forget for best results, to chill the dough both before you put in a Mini Creme Egg and after.

1

Preheat the oven to 180C. Blend together the butter and caster sugar.

2

Then add in the egg.

 
3

Sift in the flour and add the vanilla.

 
4

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.

 
5

Once chilled, break off a small amount of dough.

6

Place a Mini Creme Egg in the centre and wrap it in dough.

   
7

Roll this in your hands until you have a smooth round ball and you can’t see the Mini Creme Egg.

8

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.

 
9

When they are baking, get the toppings ready. You will need Dairy Milk and Fondant Icing Sugar.

 
10

Melt your Dairy Milk in the microwave.

 
11

Make up two bowls of Fondant Icing Sugar as directed. Leave one bowl white and colour one orange. (I’ve used Tangerine Sugarflair concentrated colour)

12

Full three piping bags with your toppings.

   
13

Once your cookies have baked and cooled, drizzle them with toppings, be generous!
