A scrumptious and straightforward to make large easter cookie filled with easter goodies, and embellished with buttercream and much more chocolate!
Everyone knows I really like an easter bake that I can principally stuff with as many easter goodies as I would like, and that is positively one other a type of recipes. I like cookies, in all varieties, and this large easter cookie is simply on one other stage!
I’ve a shared a couple of large cookie recipes on my weblog now corresponding to my large birthday cookie and my large valentines cookie, so I wished to do an easter model. How may I not?! It’s peak chocolate season within the baking world!
The large cookies are a play on my cookie bar recipes, and I’m not mad about it. The depth of the cookie is barely chunkier in comparison with the cookie bars because it’s baked into an 8″ spherical tin, in comparison with a 9″ sq. tin, however that’s what makes it so good.
These large cookies are nice for events, corresponding to Easter, as you may beautify them they usually simply look spectacular. They’re additionally extremely straightforward to make – if you wish to stage it up extra although, take a look at my mini egg cookie cake; thats two layers.
The cookie dough is similar model cookie dough as all my cookies, as a result of it really works wonders and I don’t wish to mess with it at any level.
- Butter – Whether or not its baking unfold, butter, or a margarine – all of them work for this form of cookie dough
- Sugars – I like to make use of a mixture of mild brown delicate sugar and granulated sugar for this large easter cookie
- Egg – I have a tendency to make use of medium eggs in my bakes, however you should use one giant egg as a substitute of.
- Flavours – As all the time it’s non-obligatory so as to add vanilla, but it surely provides a scrumptious flavour.

- Elevating brokers – For this recipe, I exploit bicarbonate of soda. Bicarb is a basic addition because the elevating agent for cookies.
- Salt – I all the time add sea salt to my cookie dough recipes as a result of it’s scrumptious, however you may positively go away it out, or use salted butter
In the case of the easter goodies, you may principally use no matter ones you fancy. Whether or not it’s all mini eggs, all galaxy eggs and so forth… you do you, boo. Actually, the one rule I’d say is if you wish to use delicate centred eggs, ensure you freeze them first.

The ornament for one thing like this tremendous easy. but additionally non-obligatory, in addition to adaptable. I really like adorning my large cookies barely in order that it brings them up a notch, and all I do is add a bit buttercream across the edges of the cookie, after which beautify with some sprinkles and much more chocolate.
I all the time attempt to use appropriate sprinkles for the event, so these are fairly pastels and colors that go well with the colors of all of the completely different Easter eggs I used. I clearly went a bit loopy with the eggs on prime, however extra the merrier proper?!
