Our Favorite Easter Cookies!

We love our M&M Cookies. We change these cookies up to any holiday or season by changing out the M&Ms and chips, like we did for these Easter Cookies.

We added the pastel M&Ms and white chocolate chips to make them perfect for Spring and Easter and EVERYONE loved the flavor!

Why we love them:

  • Quick and easy. With few ingredients and ready in minutes, these cookies are perfect!
  • Delicious. Easter cookies are such a tasty treat, it’s impossible to just have one.
  • For spring! These easy cookies look adorable and festive, perfect for Easter desserts and spring – Easter bunny ready!
  • Change it up. The kids love to dip these beauties in milk or make our own cookie ice cream sandwiches. The possibilities are delicious!

  • STORE. Place cookies in an airtight container, along with a piece of white bread to help keep them soft, and then store them at room temperature for 4-5 days.
  • FREEZE Easter cookies in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 months. 
  • Store cookie dough. Cover the bowl and keep the dough in the fridge for up to 3 days before scooping and baking. 
  • Freeze cookie dough. Scoop the dough balls (without the added M&Ms on top), and line them up onto a baking sheet. Put the cookie sheet in the freezer until they are solid, then transfer them to a freezer-safe container. Freeze for up to 3 months.
    • To bake. Allow them to thaw on a cookie sheet for about 20 minutes, then, add extra M&Ms and chips to the top before baking.

    Thank you for such a a pretty, simple, yummy Easter cookie recipe! It turned out great for my daughters bake sale.

    I made a mistake I’ll share for other brain dead mommas like myself. I used Cadbury milk chocolate eggs instead of M&M’s because I had them on hand. They were too big and hard to chop. I don’t suggest that sub!

    I might use more white chips in batter next time so I’m only pressing M&M’s into top.
