Best ever Easter cookies – BBC Good Food

Looking for a sweet treat to enjoy on Easter Sunday? Try making a batch of our cheerful Easter cookies to enjoy with a cup of tea.

They’re a great way to use up leftover chocolate from an Easter egg, or any extra chocolate mini eggs. Keep the kids entertained by getting them involved in the kitchen, too.

Or, keep baking with one of our Easter brownies or Easter cupcakes recipes, decorated with chocolate, sprinkles or candy. And, for even more treats, see our top 10 showstopping Easter bakes and our best ever chocolate bark recipes.

These colourful cookies are pure joy to look at, and taste even better. Choose between two decoration styles: stripes and polka dots or eggs with a jammy centre. They look intricate, but they’re easy to put together.

Our foolproof fudge crinkle biscuits are highly rated for a reason. They’re so easy to bake: simply combine the minimal ingredients, roll the dough into balls, then coat in icing sugar. They’re super-rich and chocolatey, making them the perfect Easter treat.

For a chocolate alternative, try our spiced Easter biscuits with lemon and currants. To make these easy biscuits, combine your ingredients, then chill for 30 minutes. Roll out the dough, cut them into shapes and bake for 7 minutes. Brush with beaten egg white, sprinkle with sugar and bake for another 7 minutes.

Swap out the chocolate chips in this recipe for some chopped leftover Easter chocolate. This simple recipe calls for butter, sugar, eggs, flour, cocoa powder and the chocolate of your choice. To make them extra-indulgent, try dipping them in melted chocolate, then leave to cool.

Mini egg cookies

Use up some extra chocolate mini eggs with this festive twist on chocolate chip cookies. Nothing says ‘spring’ quite like the pastel mini eggs. Try making the dough, then freezing it to bake whenever you’re craving a fresh cookie!

For a more mature flavour profile, try these unique honey and tahini cookies. They’re the perfect balance between sweet and salty, with a nutty, earthy flavour. They’re a special treat that would work well for Easter Sunday.

Combine brownies and cookies with these clever sweet treats. Kids will love making these fun brownie bites, each filled with a chocolate mini egg. Try using sprinkles or other candies to decorate and add more colour.
