Mini Egg Cookies

We do love baking A and I and every week, when we are having a ‘mummy and A day’, we make cakes or cookies.  My white chocolate chip cookies always go down well, so they are made rather too regularly but the cookie mixture that I use can be used with lots of different additions from dried fruit to different sweets.  This time we decided to make a large batch of Mini Egg cookies in readiness for the Easter weekend and I though it would be nice to give a few away to friends and family too.

Mini Egg Cookie Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Sweet chewy cookies with crunchy bursts of Mini Eggs. Perfect for an Easter treat.
  • 125g soft brown sugar (light or dark depending how rich you want them)
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 150g softened butter
  • 300g self raising flour
  • 1 egg and 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 200g Cadbury Mini Eggs (you can use more or less depending on how many eggs you want in each cookie)
  1. Mix the sugars into the softened butter until it is mixed in really well.
  2. Next pour in the vanilla essence.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and egg yolk together and then pour in and mix until combined.
  4. Add the flour and combine it into the mixture
  5. Finally add your mini eggs and give one final mix so that the eggs are distributed fairly evenly throughout the mixture.
  6. Place small balls of the mixture onto a greaseproof paper lined baking tray. I usually put six on at a time.
  7. Bake in the oven for around ten minutes or until they are just starting to turn golden brown.
  8. Cool and enjoy.

 I usually make double the quantities in this recipe so that I could wrap a few up for friends who have children.  I thought that they would make a nice change from Easter Eggs.

    Right, I’m back! They look lovely and a great cooking activity for the little ‘uns. Earlier – when I tried to comment – I said I had eggs so would give it a go. Well, erm, the eggs have kind of gone. Some got snuffled and the rest went into some chocolate bark. Yum! I will def put some in cookies next time though 😀
