  • 120 g unsalted butter - room temperature
  • 100 g dark brown sugar - firmly packed
  • 150 g plain flour (all-purpose)
  • ½ teaspoon cornflour (cornstarch)
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ tsp fine salt
  • 1 egg - room temperature
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 100 g mini eggs - chopped into small chunks
  • 50 g mini eggs - chopped into large chunks
  • 80 g white chocolate - chopped


  • In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar for three minutes minimum until pale in colour, scraping down the sides of the bowl halfway.
  • In a separate bowl, sift the flour, cornflour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Scrape down the mixing bowl sides and add the egg and vanilla extract, and beat until combined.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients (flour mix), and 100g of mini eggs chopped into small pieces and the white chocolate, then mix until combined.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Using a cookie scoop or a teaspoon, scoop balls of cookie dough into inch sized balls and place them on a baking tray and place them in the freezer for 20 minutes (or fridge for 40 minutes).
  • Remove the cookie dough balls from the freezer and place them on two lined baking trays, leaving a good 2 inches between the balls.
  • Bake for 7 to 8 minutes until the edges are just turning golden. My preferences are soft, chewy cookies but if you prefer crispier cookies, then add an extra minute or so to the cooking time. Remove the tray from the oven; whilst still hot, sprinkle the remaining larger pieces on mini eggs onto the cookies, pushing them in gently. Using a large cookie cutter, place it over a cookie and twist it around, pushing the edges of the cookie gently in to help form it into a round shape. Leave on the baking tray for 15 minutes to cool and then transfer to a wire rack to cool further. Serve immediately.


To double: This recipe can be doubled to yield 20 cookies.
To Store: The cookies can be stored at room temperature for 3 days or in the fridge for 5 days, in an air tight container.
To Freeze: Freeze cookie dough balls for up to three months. Bake straight from frozen, adding a couple of minutes onto bake time.
