Cadbury Egg Peanut Butter Cookies

I have to make a confession I have a slight addiction to mini cadbury eggs. I'm the person who buys them the day after Easter when they are on sale, and will bring them out in July. I know a little weird. This is the first time that I put them in cookies. I tell you it was an act of genius. Make these and you will love me and yourself for making them.

Jim has been been eating/sneaking on these all afternoon. They have been declared the best cookies of all time. That says a lot, since I make a lot of cookies. I mean I almost named the blog Laura's Cookie Obsession. Just kidding.. but it does prove how good these cookies are to eat.

There is one small detail that is difficult about these cookies. Chopping the cadbury eggs is kind of a pain. Initially I was just going to put a couple of whole eggs on top. However I passed this idea on to the hubby, and he reminded me that having chunks throughout the cookie is so much better than a little goodness at the top. So I chopped away!

It feels like Spring has finally come to our area. Its a cold spring, but the SUN is out. Gdog is loving it. She has a rough life huh?

The theme for the week is Easter. Once again a little early so you can plan ahead.
