Claudia's Cookbook - Cadbury Mini Egg Skillet Cookie 19  My obsession with Cadbury Mini Eggs continues. I figured you wouldn’t mind if I posted another recipe with these delectable treats, right? Our Cadbury Mini Egg Cookie recipe I posted a couple years ago proves to be one of our most popular recipes, especially this time of year. I figured I should do some experimenting and see where it leads me. Well, I can report that it led me to this delicious skillet cookie! I adapted a skillet chocolate chip cookie recipe from the lovely Bakers Royale. I selected this recipe to adapt because it uses brown butter. I love brown butter. It has such a rich nutty flavour and aroma. Plus, you don’t need an electric mixer for this recipe. Bonus!

This skillet cookie is dense and rich. The Mini Eggs are so delicious with the cookie base. I opted to use a 9-inch skillet for a thicker cookie, but this recipe can easily suit a 12-inch skillet as well. If you use a 9-inch skillet, just ensure you up your baking time by about 10 minutes. I highly recommend you make this recipe for Easter!

You will need:

Claudia's Cookbook - Cadbury Mini Egg Skillet Cookie 1

1-3/4 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp salt
3 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1-1/2 cups Cadbury Mini Eggs, roughly chopped

 In a medium bowl, sift together flour and baking soda.

Set aside.

In a medium saucepan, melt 3/4 cup of your butter over medium heat.

 Continue stirring melted butter until brown/amber in colour and nutty in aroma.

Keep an eye on it, it browns fast and you don’t want it to burn.

Remove from heat.

Pour heated butter through a sieve into a large heat proof bowl.

Stir in remaining 1/4 cup butter until completely melted.

Next, add your brown and white sugar, vanilla and salt to the butter.

Whisk until combined.

Add egg and egg yolk, whisk until mixture is smooth and no sugar lumps remain – about 30 seconds.

Set aside to sit for 3 minutes.

After three minutes, whisk again for another 30 seconds.

Let it sit again for 3 minutes.

Repeat this step one more time. This allows for the mixture to become glossy and smooth.

Next, stir in flour until combined.

Finally, add in your roughly chopped/smashed Mini Eggs!

Press your batter into a lightly greased cast iron skillet.

Again, I used a 9-inch, but you can use anything up to a 12-inch skillet.

Bake in a  375 degree fahrenheit oven for 15 – 17 minutes for a 12-inch skillet, and up to 25 minutes for a 9-inch skillet, or until golden brown and still puffy.

      You could try to bake it in an 8 x 8 or 9 x 13 inch pan. I have never tried it so I can’t recommend a baking time, but would imagine it would be similar.

    OH MY Goodness!!! Where has this recipe been all my life? I too am Ukrainian and am learning all my mom’s traditional and other recipes and I am obsessed with these little chocolates So it’s safe to say I will be splurging on this little treat!

    Can I eat the whole thing?

    Thank you so much for this recipe! For those of you questioning whether all that work is worth it or not, it totally is. My husband is absolutely obsessed with cadbury’s mini eggs, and he recently found his love of Applebee’s blondie brownies. This tastes like the Applebee’s blondie made love to the easter bunny and had babies. lol I really think the process of browning the butter is what sets this apart from your average cookie cake recipe. Simply delicious. Add this to your recipe book and follow it to a ‘T’. You won’t be sorry!
