I always have such huge plans for easter baking and every year, right about this time, I lose motivation. Must be feeling the spring break itch!

So the last several years my go-to desserts have been Easter cookies recipes. These are my favorite recipes.

I tweak some of them a bit so do what works for you.

7 Simple Easter Cookie Recipes:

Springtime Crinkle Cookies Two Sisters Crafting

These are some of the prettiest cookies I have ever seen and they taste delicious. They are light and fluffy with a hint of lemon, but the lemon isn’t overpowering.

Easter Blossom Sugar Cookies My kitchen Craze

It was hard to get pictures of these cookies. They are a family favorite and they never last long! They are soft and chewy and impossible to stay away from. I tend to go between sugar cookies and shortbread cookies for this recipe, both are delicious. My family likes the sugar cookies more, but I’ll link my favorite shortbread cookie recipe here in case you prefer a shortbread cookie.

No-Bake Butterscotch and Peanut Butter Bird’s Nest Cookies – Ahead of Thyme (These are absolutely amazing!) I did make a chocolate version too. Some of my family members do not like butterscotch. I make a few chocolate ones so they don’t feel left out. You can just melt chocolate chips the same way you do the butterscotch chips.

M&M Cookies – Deliciously Sprinkled

These cookies are practically a food group in my house. Thank you, Winco and your bulk-foods department! Super easy, kid’s love them, they are colorful so they make a good easter/spring cookie!

Gooey Butter Blue Velvet Cookies – Lil Luna

I know this is a recipe for Patriotic cookies, but the cookies are heaven and perfect for Easter. Light and fluffy and you may never eat any other type of cookie ever again. They are the best part of a cupcake and cookie rolled into one. I frosted them with a simple buttercream frosting. You can whip up your own or buy a can of whipped frosting. I frosted half with sprinkles and the other half I added a blue peep to make peep cookies.

Bunny Paw Thumbprint Cookies – The Bearfoot Baker¬† (I didn’t get to try these but they look so cute! If you make them please let me know how they were in the comments.)



Peep Dip! Not an easter cookie recipe, but you serve it with cookies so I think it counts. This is a big hit in our house every year. I usually make my own graham crackers as they are really easy to make, but in the spirit of keeping Easter simple, buy the boxed ones and feel zero guilt Mom!
