Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cookies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Baking Soda
- Cornflour/cornstarch: Makes for extra soft and thick cookies.
- Unsalted butter: Melted.
- Light brown sugar: Using mostly brown sugar results in extra soft and chewy cookies, as well as a subtle molasses flavour.
- Caster/granulated sugar
- Large egg
- Vanilla extract
- Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.
- Cadbury’s Mini Eggs: Or any other brand of chocolate mini eggs.
How to make Mini Egg Cookies
To make these cookies, simply grab a medium mixing bowl and whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cornflour, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugars.
Add the egg and vanilla extract, and mix until combined.
Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips and chopped Mini Eggs.
Roll the dough into 2-oz balls (or use a medium cookie scoop), and place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes.
TIP: Immediately after baking, top the cookies with extra Mini Eggs, for looks. You want the cookies to still be very soft so the Mini Egg pieces can easily be pressed into the tops.
Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
