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.
