Fried Egg Cookies

Whoever said you can’t have cookies for breakfast never tried these cookies!

A perfect April Fool’s treat!

Tomorrow is April Fool’s Day, and we all know that if you don’t catch people early, they will remember what day it is and call your bluff! That’s why these little “breakfast” cookies are the perfect trick. I served them with bacon (salty and sweet…) and toasted pound cake. They are easy to put together and they are the cutest little things in Easter baskets too!

Egg cookies for EasterTwo holidays covered by one recipe? Perfect.

These are perfectly tasty too~ and so easy to create for yourself! Here’s how we did them (printable recipe)

INGREDIENTS: (makes 24-36 cookies, depending on the size of your cookie cutter)

  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon of butter flavoring
  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 3 bags of Wiltons candy melts in white
  • 1 bag of Wilton’s candy melts in yellow
  • 24-36 Nilla Wafers

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth.
  • Add eggs, vanilla and butter flavoring and mix well.
  • Add all dry ingredients and mix until able to knead into a firm ball of dough (add additional flour if necessary).
  • Roll out on a floured counter with a flour coated rolling pin to desired thickness.
  • Cut using an egg shaped cookie cutter.
  • Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 350F degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Slide baked cookies onto parchment paper to cool completely.
  • Melt 1/2 a bag of yellow candy melts in a small bowl in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until smooth.
  • Gently dip Nilla wafers into yellow candy melts, covering completely and removing with a fork by tapping on the edge of the bowl and sliding bottom along edge. Place on parchment paper to harden completely. (I placed these in the fridge to harden more quickly so they would be ready to place on the egg “whites”)
  • Melt white candy melts in a larger bowl, using the same technique as melting the yellow ones.
  • Gently dip each cooled egg cookie into the white candy melts, using the same technique as with the Nilla Wafers.

  • Place on parchment paper to harden, but before white egg hardens completely, place a yellow Nilla Wafer on top as a “yolk”.

  • Allow cookie to harden completely and serve up with bacon and toasted pound cake…and maybe coffee?
  • These can be placed into treat bags and put into Easter baskets too! Fun!!!

Hamburger Cookies!

Hamburger Cookie!These cute little burgers are a fun April Fools treat.  They look like a little burger, but they taste like a yummy peppermint cookie!

I’ve been making these since I was a little girl.  They are so easy to put together and so fun to share with people!  Both kids and adults will smile when they see these on the table or tucked into a lunch box!

Hamburger Cookies!!Want to know how to make these cute little treats?  Here’s the recipe: (printable version)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 box of Nilla Wafers
  • 1 bag of York Peppermint Patties
  • 1/3 cup each of red, green and yellow Wilton’s candy melts.

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat the oven to 350F degrees
  • Unwrap all of your peppermint patties. (Usually there are 24-26 of them per bag)
  • Count out twice that many Nilla Wafers (choose the pretty and unbroken ones!)
  • Place half of the Nilla Wafers, flat side up, on a cookie sheet.
  • Set one peppermint patty on each Nilla wafer.
  • Carefully place the cookie sheet in the oven for 1 to 2 minutes, just long enough to melt the chocolate coating on the peppermint patty. (This will melt the bottom of the peppermint to the Nilla wafer).
  • In 3 small bowls, melt the Candy Melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between until completely melted and smooth.
  • Place each of the 3 melted colors in separate zip-top bags.
  • Clip one corner and drizzle one color across tops of each peppermint.  Repeat this with other two colors.

  • Gently press a Nilla wafer, flat side down, on top of the drizzled candy melts. Press to gently squeeze the “ketchup, lettuce and cheese” colors out at the edge of the cookie “bun”.
  • Allow cookies to harden completely.

I like to serve them with those little mini potato sticks.  I wanted to take some pictures with some, but I couldn’t find any at the grocery store here.  Trust me, the salty and sweet is a yummy combination.

Hamburger Cookies!!!!My thoughts:  My mom was downright mischievous on April Fools Day.  I had green milk and no meat on my sandwich and holes poked in my apple.  This is a fun “eating hamburgers for dessert” prank that will make your family smile.  Plus they are SO yummy!  Enjoy!!! ~r
