Mini Egg Cookie Pie or cookie cake depending on what you like to call them. A vanilla cookie pie filled with chocolate chips, Easter eggs and Easter mini eggs and topped with a rainbow coloured white chocolate drizzle.
O. M. G. YOU GUYS! Look at this beauty! The gorgeous pastels, the speckled mini eggs, the chewy and soft cookie you know is hiding underneath... THIS is what you call an Easter showstopping dessert!
I used my trusty cookie pie base recipe added far too much chocolate (kidding! Is too much chocolate even a thing?), all manner of Easter eggs and smothered the lot in pastel coloured white chocolate drizzles and more mini eggs.
This is probably more of a cookie cake than a cookie pie but regardless of what you like to call it, you need to make it!
I am on an Easter egg frenzy. I have been buying far too many Easter eggs on my very meager student budget but there's just something about baking with Easter eggs, particularly pretty pastel mini eggs, that is just so fun.
After posting my Creme Egg Brownies recipe and my Oreo Creme Egg Cookie Bars recipe, this one will be my last for Easter recipe for the year. Don't panic! There are plenty of other Easter recipes in my blogs archive and I already have plenty of Easter themed treats up my sleeve for next year!
The most time consuming part of this mini egg cookie pie /cake is the colouring of the white chocolate. I used small ramekins to separate my chocolate as I ran out of bowls. I also used liquid food colouring as that's what I had on hand. You could use gel colours or if you can get your hands on them, pastel food colouring so there's no chance of you being heavy handed with the colouring.
