Easter Egg Cookies

With Easter Sunday just a few days away we decided to make the most of the abundance of easter eggs in the supermarkets and make some cute little easter egg cookies for Leish to take into her office. Although these cookies are delicious enough with just chocolate chips, the Easter Eggs make them that little bit more special. We used little mini Easter Eggs from the supermarket which were in pastel colours. The smaller the eggs the easier it will be to form the cookies.
