Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies & Ice Cream

A couple of days ago one of my friends posted a photo on Facebook of some cookies that she'd made, so I asked if she would share the recipe with me as I'm always on the lookout for a good cookie recipe. It turns out it was a Mary Berry recipe, and as I don't have any of her cook books (I must do something to rectify that soon) she sent me the recipe. Instead of 100g Chocolate chips I added Cadbury Mini Eggs, just because it's nearly Easter, and substituted Muscovado sugar for soft brown, as that's what I had in. I then served them sandwiched with home-made Mini Egg ice cream.

Cadbury Mini Egg Ice Cream

397g Condensed milk
284ml Double cream
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
few drops of yellow food colouring
zest & juice of half a lemon (optional)
100g Cadbury Mini Eggs

  • Whisk the condensed milk, cream & vanilla together until it forms firm peaks
  • Weigh out 100g and combine the food colouring until you have the desired yellow colour & then add the lemon zest & juice
  • Bash the bag of mini eggs a few times with a rolling pin to roughly crush them
  • Pour the uncoloured ice cream mixture into a freezable container
  • Mix in the mini eggs
  • Stir the yellow ice cream mixture through the the rest, but don't mix it in
  • Freeze for a few hours or overnight, until set

If you're in a hurry for your ice cream it can be made more quickly in one of the many ice cream makers on the market. If you use one you won't need to whisk the condensed milk & cream beforehand.
