  • 8 oz softened butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 311 grams all-purpose flour (2 1/2 cups minus 1 tsp when the flour is fluffed up, lightly spooned into measuring cups and levelled off)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp coarse salt
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips (plus more for topping)
  • 1 cup halved mini eggs (plus more for topping)
  • 18 mini creme eggs, halved (for topping)


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line rimless baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Combine butter and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually incorporate flour mixture to fully combine, then mix in the chocolate chips and halved mini eggs.
  • Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined rimless baking sheets 2" apart. Bake 8-10 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through. Cookies are done when golden and still soft in the middle. As soon as you remove them from the oven, top with a few more chocolate chips and mini eggs, plus half a creme egg. Let cool 5 minutes on pan before transferring to wire racks. (If using the same pan for another batch, make sure you cool it completely.)
