Easter Cookies

Easter Cookies

These festive Easter Cookies are rich, sweet, soft, and chewy! Thanks to a “secret” ingredient — molasses –they have a deep toffee flavor, with bright pops of sweet milk chocolate and crunchy Cadbury® eggs.

I couldn’t be more excited to share these oatmeal Easter cookies with you all — they are my favorite oatmeal cookies to date! After creating these Gingersnap Cookies this last year, I knew I had to find another way to incorporate molasses into cookies — it is crazy what that ingredient does to the flavor of cookies! It adds rich caramel and toffee-like notes of flavor and an insane amount of chewiness. I love a good chewy oatmeal cookie with a deep toffee-like flavor, so oatmeal cookies are the perfect place to add molasses.

It’s just a small amount, but you’ll be amazed at what it does for flavor and texture in these Easter Cookies!

The molasses in these cookies is not overpowering (there isn’t a whole lot of it). Instead of making these cookies taste like molasses, it lends a subtle caramel or toffee-like flavor. The molasses is also the “secret” to keeping the cookies soft and chewy in the center. And, finally, the molasses adds a bit of sweetness to these Easter Cookies.
