Easter Mini Egg Cookies

Soft, chewy cookies, with a surprise inside! These cookies are super yummy, and made with Cadbury Mini Eggs. A treat for all, big or small!

Servings 2 dozen cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Cadbury mini eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, baking powder and baking soda until smooth. Add in the flour and mix until the batter is smooth, then mix in the mini eggs.

  3. Shape the cookie dough into golf ball sized dough balls. Place on an un-greased cookie sheet, leaving a couple of inches between each cookie.

  4. Bake for 9 minutes, and remove from oven. Let cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container for one week.

Recipe Notes

It is very important not to exceed the cooking time!!! Otherwise these cookies will not be soft in the middle and lightly crisp around the edges. 

The cookies will look soft in the middle, and start to brown on the edges when they are done. The longest I would recommend baking them for is 11 minutes. When you pull them out of the oven they will still cook on the hot tray.
