Ingredients

50g unsalted butter, at room temperature

25g caster sugar

1tbsp vanilla bean paste

80g plain flour, plus extra for dusting

80g pack Cadbury Mini Eggs

Method

1
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
2
Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla then mix in the flour. Bring together with your hands and shape into a flat disc. Wrap in clingfilm and chill for 20 mins.
3
Unwrap the dough, put onto a floured surface and roll out to the thickness of a £1 coin. Cut out shapes with a 6cm round fluted cutter, rerolling the scraps once, to make 9 cookies. Put onto the trays and arrange 3 Mini Eggs on each, pressing down slightly.
4
Bake for 10-12 mins until golden round the edges. Cool for 5 mins on the trays before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
