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


  • 1 small package of chocolate Easter eggs in a candy shell ((like Eggies))
  • 1/2 cup butter (at room temperature)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • in extra sugar for rolling the dough


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla. Mix until well blended.
  4. In another bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.
  5. Add the flour mix, alternately with the milk, to the butter mixture, mixing until well blended.
  6. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Shape the cookie dough into 1 inch balls.
  8. Roll the balls in the extra sugar, and place them on a cookie sheet. Do not press them down.
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until edges of the cookies are lightly browned.
  10. Remove the cookies from the oven and let cool for 2 – 3 minutes. After this time press 3 small Easter eggies into the middle of the cookies.  See notes.
  11. Let cool completely on a wire rack.


Make sure you give the cookies enough time to cool down. If you move them too quickly, the Easter eggs will crack.
