Easiest Cookie Recipe Ever

Lucy Gray Recipes


Yep that's right, this recipe is the easiest. recipe. ever, and not only that. they're also the most delicious, incredibly quick and a huge crowd pleaser! So really what is not to love?

As Easter is round the corner I have made mine with Mini Eggs but you can swap in whatever you like throughout the year, why not try...

  • Smarties 
  • Raspberries/White Chocolate
  • Milk/Dark/White Chocolate chunks 
  • Reeses Mini Peanut Butter Cups 
  • Cranberries/White Chocolate 
  • Milk Chocolate and Pretzels 
  • Macadamia Nut 


  • 100g Butter 
  • 100g Light Muscovado Sugar 
  • 1 Tbsp Golden Syrup 
  • 170g Self-Raising Flour 
  • 100g Mini Eggs (Or however many you'd like to put in!)


  • Preheat the oven to 180c and place baking paper on baking sheets.
  • Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until light and creamy, then beat in the golden syrup 
  • Work in the flour with the Mini Eggs, then form a dough with your hands (bit of a messy job but it'll come together to form a dough) 

Mini Egg cookie dough

  • You can chill this dough if you like in clingfilm in the fridge for when you're ready but I always cook straight away.
  • Form into balls, and place them well apart on the sheets - do not flatten them, trust the process they will flatten out! 
  • Bake for 12 minutes until pale golden - they will continue to harden up once out of the oven so don't over cook! 

Mini Egg Cookies

  • Cool on a wire rack and enjoy! 

There you have it, I told you they were easy didn't I!?

If you try this receipe let me know how you get on and what flavour you decide to go for!
