Easter Cookies made with Cadbury Mini Easter Eggs or Easter M&M's

I just received this recipe from I Love Texas Recipes, it was shared by Annie's Kitchen. Hopefully Spring will show up across the country and Easter will arrive. I've researched many Easter Cookies and I like this recipe the best. I added the option of using Easter M&M's in place of the Cadbury Mini Easter Eggs. This would also be a great cookie dough to make with Halloween M&M's and Christmas M&M's. The basic dough is incredible. To make a great Chocolate Chip Cookie, add 1 - 11.5 oz. bag of Nestle's Chocolate Chunks.

I've taken the liberty of adapting the recipe without compromising the integrity of the original recipe.

2 1/4 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 C butter = (2 sticks) or (16 TBS), softened
3/4 C granulated sugar
3/4 C packed brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 1/2 C Cadbury Mini Easter Eggs (see note below for options)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

In a medium bowl:
baking soda
Whisk Well

In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment or in a bowl with a hand mixer:
Cream Butter and Sugar until well combined.
Add Vanilla and continue to mix just until incorporated.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating each egg until incorporated.

Gradually beat in dry ingredients.
The dough will be soft.

Chop Mini Eggs in half with a chef's knife and fold into the batter by hand.
Using a medium (1 1/2") cookie scoop, drop cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, 2" apart.
Bake for 9 - 10 minutes.
