I love to bake. Well… I love to eat. I love to eat the things I bake. Does that mean I am good? Absolutely not. HOWEVER one thing I have made and I have made bloody right – is these NYC Style Easter Cookies. I’m not one to blow my own trumpet but they are SO GOOD. I shared a photo on our Instagram stories whilst baking them and the response was crazy so figured I would share the recipe.

A lot of people ask what a New York City style cookie is and basically it is a beasty cookie. They are really chunky!

They are incredibly soft & gooey which is exactly how I like my cookies. If you like yours more of a biscuit style than a soft cookie, i’d add a few minutes onto the cooking time.

I also reheated these the day later, in a hot oven for about 4 minutes and they tasted even better than when they were fresh the day before!


  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 75g white granulated sugar
  • 100g light brown soft sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 300g plain flour
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • Half tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 100g chocolate chips – I did 50g white & 50g milk chocolate
  • 200g chopped mini eggs


  • Add butter, light brown sugar & granulated sugar to bowl and mix until creamy.
  • Add in your egg and vanilla, mix again.
  • Add plain flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda – mix until a cookie dough is formed.
  • Add in your chocolate chips and mini eggs and mix so they are evenly spread within the dough.
  • Weigh out each cookie so it weighs around 110g – roughly 8 cookies!
  • Once you have put them on your baking tray, put them into the freezer for 30 minutes – this ensures that the butter solidifies and it stops your cookies spreading as much, meaning they hold on to their chewy texture. They also cook more evenly!
  • Whilst you are chilling your cookies, preheat your oven to 180 degrees (fan oven) and bake for 14 minutes.
  • Once they are baked leave them to cool for around 30-40 minutes, the cookies continue to cook for this time!

They are super easy and incredibly tasty! If you make these we’d love for you to tag us on Instagram using @thatmamaclub or #thatmamaclubig

    Perfect cookies for Easter! These cookies look so amazing, I know I’m going to have to make some to ship to my daughter! Why does the recipe say to chop the chocolate Easter eggs before adding them to the dough? Can’t the chocolate candy eggs be left whole?

      They are better chopped up as your mini eggs go further in the mixture, you get more chocolate distributed throughout! I did push two whole mini eggs into the top of the cookies before I chilled them. x
