Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Set aside.
In the bowl of standing mixer, cream the butter and sugars at medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes.
Add the eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla bean paste. Continue mixing at medium speed for 2 minutes.
Reduce mixer speed to low. Add the sifted flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until just combined.
Remove from mixer and fold in the crushed mini eggs by hand.
Using an ice cream scoop, put dough balls on the parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 8 - 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool.
