Mini Eggs are my weakness. I can’t walk past a bag in a shop and not buy them so last week we combined them with a cookie recipe to create these yummy Mini Egg Cookies.

We first used this easy cookie recipe a few months ago when we made these Bear Paw Cookies so this was a bit of an experiment so see if it would work with added Mini Eggs.


  • 220g self raising flour
  • 120g softened butter
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 80g brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Vanillla essence
  • Mini Egg


How to make Mini Egg Cookies

1 Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees

Beat together the butter and sugar


Add the egg and vanilla essence and beat together again


4 Sift the self raising flour and combine until the mixture forms a sticky dough

5 Next up we placed half the Mini Eggs in a bag and gave them a good bash with the rolling pin. Then pour them in the bowl and combine.



6 Roll the mixture into little balls and place on a non stick baking tray and squash down slightly.


 Bake for 8 – 10 minutes and remove them whilst they’re still soft.

8 Once cooled we added the rest of the mini eggs by pushing them gently into the cookies.

It’s safe to say that the experiment pulled off and these cookies taste AMAZING. I wasn’t sure if the Mini Eggs in the mixture would keep their colour but they did.
