Eggs- At room temperature.

Vanilla

Flour- 2 cups of all purpose flour only, is what makes these cookies ultra thin and flat.

Chocolate Chips- I used mini semi- sweet chocolate chip.

Easter Candy- I used Cadbury Mini Eggs, my absolute favorite! But Mini Robins Eggs or Easter M&M’s are just as good in these Easter cookies! I also crushed some of the mini eggs and left some as is.

Tips for Making the Best Mini Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies

Measure the Flour Correctly:

The most important part of this recipe is measuring your flour correctly! Flour consistency is what makes these cookies ultra thin and flat. You will only need 2 cups of all purpose flour, be sure to use a measuring cup made for dry ingredients, not the glass Pyrex one. The scoop and level method works great for me when measuring my flour, but you can also use the spoon and level method if you prefer. First, I fluff the flour in the container, scoop it out with a measuring cup, then level it with the a butter knife to get rid of excess flour on top of the measuring cup. 

Chocolate Chip and Easter Candy:

This recipe calls for 3/4 cups of mini chocolate chip and 3/4 cups of crushed mini eggs folded into the dough, but if you want the the cookies to look like the ones in the pictures, you have to sprinkle extra chips and some mini eggs on top after scooping out the dough and before baking.

Don’t over bake!

Mine were done at 9 minutes. When you take the baked cookies out of the oven, If they look slightly browned on the edges and under done in the middle, then you’re on the track. As hard as it may be not to try these cookies, you have to be patient and let them rest for about 10 minutes after removing them from the oven.  The additional 10 minutes of rest will allow the under done middle to set up.
