Easter Egg Sugar Cookies

Make these Easter Egg Sugar Cookies for Easter!  They’re soft, chewy, so delicious.

I really enjoy Easter, especially Easter eats.  At Easter I tend to make the same dishes year after year, but these food traditions are what we love most about this holiday.  Many of the recipes I use are ones I remember my Mom, or Aunts and Grandmas cooking from when we were growing up.  Things like Peanut Butter Confetti Cake, or 7 Layered Salad or Devilled Eggs…all really delicious comfort food.  When these dishes made an appearance it was like they were marking the arrival of spring.  Love that.  And now I’m trying to add in some of my own recipes in hopes that they become traditions for my little family.  This is so easy to do, because there are so many delicious options!

So for Easter this year, I decided to make some Easter Egg Sugar cookies.  These cookies are the exact same recipe I used for my Peppermint Kiss Sugar Cookies that I posted at Christmas.  All I did differently was use little chocolate Easter eggs instead of peppermint kisses, which makes them perfect for Easter!

I’ve been dying to share these cookies with you, ever since I posted them on Instagram earlier this week.  They’re just so easy to make and so pretty to look at that I need to share them!

Now just make sure that before you sneak some of those little eggies into your mouth when no one is looking, that you leave enough for your cookies.  You wouldn’t want any of these cookies to end up with no eggs on them.  Nope.  You don’t need your kids asking you why some of the cookies are empty.  😉

Aren’t they so pretty?  They are a perfect Easter cookie…they’re easy to make and are so fun and festive!


Recipe Tips:

  • You can easily double this recipe.
  • Let them cool: Make sure you give the cookies enough time to cool down. If you move them too quickly, the Easter eggs will crack.
  • I wouldn’t recommend freezing these cookies…they’re best enjoyed fresh!
  • Great for giving! These cookies are great for cookie exchanges, bake sales and parties because they’re easy to make and stand up well to packaging.

  1. Hi Jo-Anna,
    This is such a cute cookie that my grandkids will love. My only problem is that they live far away and I’ll have to mail the cookies to them. Will the little chocolate eggs stay”glued” to the cookie or will I have to add a little melted chocolate to act as a glue?

    1. Hi! Yes, I do think that adding a chocolate ‘glue’ would be a good idea, the eggs sometimes aren’t secured well even after baking. And how lucky are your grandkids! Love it.
