Creme Egg Cookies

In the spirit of Easter, I thought i'd bake something yummy and in theme. I got a creme egg Easter egg since they're my favourites, and I thought it'd be an idea to try something different with them.

I got this recipe idea on Pinterest from a lovely blog called Daisies and Pie, by searching for 'things you can make with Easter eggs'. They're really tasty, and super easy to make.


  • 100g Caster Sugar
  • 100g Butter (room temperature)
  • 1 tbs Maple Syrup
  • 3 Cadbury's Creme Eggs 
  • 180g Self Raising Flour

1) Heat your oven to 180C (Gas Mark 4), and prepare a baking tray lined with some baking parchment.

2) Mix the sugar and the butter together in a bowl. I didn't have caster sugar, but I quickly googled that you can make your own with normal granulated sugar in your blender!
3) When your butter and sugar is mixed well, add in your syrup.

4) Chop your Creme eggs into chunks (this is harder than it sounds! I tried with a knife, but you might find it easier to just break them up with your hands)

5) Sift half of your flour (90g) in with the rest of the mix

6) Add in your Creme egg chunks and mix well

7) Mix in the rest of your sifted flour

8) At this point you should mold it into a dough, then separate into small sized balls. (See picture below for reference) Don't worry these will expand!

9) Leave these to bake for 10 minutes - NO later than 15 minutes! When you take these out, they will feel gooey, but I promise you they will harden up as you leave them to cool.

10) Leave your cookies to cool for about 20 minutes to half an hour. They will then be nice and moist and ready to eat!

11) Enjoy, get a warm hot cup of tea, cuddle up and watch a film whilst its horrible and raining on this Easter weekend!

I hope you enjoy this recipe, and thank you for reading! :)
