  • 100 g butter softened
  • 150 g brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200 g self-raising flour
  • 100 g chocolate chips
  • 2x 90g packets of mini or micro eggs


Preheat your oven to 180C / 170C Fan / 325F and grease or line 3 baking trays.

    Mix the butter and sugar together

      Weigh the butter and sugar and add them to a large mixing bowl or freestanding mixer.

      • Beat the butter and sugar together using the paddle attachment of your mixer or a handheld mixer until they are light and fluffy.

      Add the egg and vanilla extract

      • Add the egg and vanilla to your bowl and mix until it is well combined.

      Add the flour and mini eggs

      • Add the flour and mix it well together.
      • Add half the mini eggs and mix them in with a wooden spoon.

      Bake the Easter cookies

      • Spoon large dollops of cookie mix onto your prepared baking trays. Leave space between them as they'll spread in the oven.
      • Put a few mini eggs on top of each cookie before they go in the oven.
      • Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes. They're ready when they have flattened down a little and started to turn a little golden.
      • Remove the cookies from your oven. Leave to cool on the baking tray for a few minutes then move them on to a wire rack to cool completely.
