Step 1Mix the softened butter and caster sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon, then add 1 egg yolk and 2 tsp vanilla extract and briefly beat to combine.
Step 2Sift over 300g plain flour and stir until the mixture is well combined - you might need to get your hands in at the end to give everything a really good mix, then press the dough together.
Step 3Divide into 5 and colour each batch. Form into sausage shapes and roll out to have a stripy effect dough.
Step 4For each cookie, cut out 3 donkey pinata shapes, cut the legs off one and cut a hole in the 'tummy' and bake at 180°C (fan oven) for 12-14 minutes.
Step 5Once cooled, use some royal icing as a glue to stick the hollowed out cookie onto one.
Step 6Fill the gap with the milk chocolate beans and then stick the top pinata onto the top with royal icing to create a filled centre cookie.
