Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
  2. Cream butter and sugars in stand mixer, until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla beating to combine. Slowly add dry ingredients and chopped Easter Chocolates. Beat gently until just combined.
  3. With a cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet placing about 1 inch apart. Press each cookie down about 1/2 inch before baking. Bake for 10-13 minutes until golden brown. With a plastic knife, re-form cookies into a nice round shape, cleaning up any melted chocolates that may have oozed out the sides. Let cookies cool for 10 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to cooling rack.
