Step by Step Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Place mini eggs inside a zip lock bag and crush the eggs into small chunks. Set aside.

Bake for 10-11 minutes or until the edge of the cookies are set. Cookies will look under done but will stiffen up after cooling down. The cookie spread. To fix take a round cookie cutter/glass slight large than the cookies, place around the cookie and gently swirl to get the cookie round again.

Let the cookies cool to room temperature on the pan before moving.

What Kind of Mini Eggs Should I Use?

It doesn’t matter what brand of mini eggs you use. I use both Cadbury and Hershey and both are great. You just want to make sure to use chocolate mini eggs.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then scrape with a knife to level off the access. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour cause the flour to compress and getting more than the recipe calls for.

STORING THE COOKIES

Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. The cookies stay good for up to four days if stored properly.

HOW TO GET PERFECTLY ROUND COOKIES

As soon as the baked cookies are pulled from the oven place a round cookie cutter (a little bit large than the cookies) around the cookies and gently swirl it around. This will give your cookie a round shape. If you don’t have a cookie cutter you can use a glass or a jar lid.

CAN I MAKE THE COOKIES SMALLER?

Yes, you can! Scoop 1.5 tbsp sized balls and bake for 8-9 minutes.
