Easter is here…like tomorrow, and if you are still looking for a last minute sweet treat I have the perfect recipe for you. Robin’s Egg Cookies!  Trust me everyone will love these!

Quick and Easy

The beauty of these cookies is that they are not only delicious but they are also super easy to mix up.  I was ready to go put the first pan in the oven by the time the oven was done preheating.  There is no chilling or freezing needed for these sweet treats.  

I love cookies that come together super quick, that means I can have them anytime I want them.

Don’t over bake them

The cook time is pretty short for these cookies.  Mine were perfect at 9 minutes.  For me perfect is when the edges are starting to brown and the middle is set but not firm.  I like crispy edges and a soft, chewy center.

If you want them crispier and firmer throughout bake them for the full 10 minutes, or maybe even 11 minutes…just test them as each oven is so different.

Not just for Easter

I am a BIG, big fan of Robin’s Eggs but if you wanted to makes these cookies with the traditional Whopper you could.  

Now I will warn you they will not be nearly as cute and colorful, but they will still be DELICIOUS!!

Get your oven preheated now…

Get the kids involved

To make this a fun family activity you could let the kids crush up the candy.  Put the candy in a large zip closure bag and then let the kids crush them up using a mallet or rolling pin.  

You could also use a heavy skillet, like a cast iron one.
