Cooking time


Serves 1 - 12 Cookies

These delicious cookies are easy to cook and taste as good as the real Millies cookies, with a crisp outer layer and a gooey centre these treats are best eaten warm but last well...if they last that long!!!

  • 125g butter, softened
  • 100g light brown soft sugar
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 200g chocolate chips


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4
    2. Cream butter and sugars, once creamed, combine in the egg and vanilla.
    3. Sift in the flour and salt, then the chocolate chips.
    4. Roll into walnut size balls, for a more homemade look, or roll into a long, thick sausage shape and slice to make neater looking cookies.
    5. Place on ungreased baking paper. If you want to have the real Millies experience then bake for just 7 minutes, till the cookies are just setting - the cookies will be really doughy and delicious. Otherwise cook for 10 minutes until just golden round the edges.
    6. Take out of the oven and leave to harden for a minute before transferring to a wire cooling rack. These are great warm, and they also store well, if they don't all get eaten straight away!

Awesome recipe - I swapped the white choc for dolly mix sweets and it worked really well

I made these, the first batch fell to pieces because I did not let them cool down, the next batch were lovely. They do spread considerably so make sure you dont overcrowd the tin. I did them for the 10 minutes rather than 7, they were chewy and delicious. Only downside they dont keep well, within 2 days they were rock hard but the next batch after that went within 20 minutes so no problem!

I made these today for the first time, followed the recipe to the letter but the cookies spread far too much which made them merge and thinner than I was expecting. The second batch I put less on the baking sheet so when they spread they didn't gel into one.They are very yummy though and taste exactly like Millie's cookies.

Such a simple recipe to follow and such a delicious cookie at the end of it! I used triple choc chips too! Was yummy!

Used this recipe to make the first cookies I can ever remember baking (I'm a bloke in my mid 40s). Did my first batch of 6 walnut size but thought they were a bit small and maybe I'd not not a tight enough ball as they had big cracks in them. they also spread loads so a couple merged in to one another. Made the second 4 a bit bigger and just had 4 on the tray. Also cooked them for 9 minutes. These were better. Got a final 3 out which were a bit bigger still and cooked again for 9 minutes. These were far the best. Now understand why I need to leave them on the tray a little before moving to the rack as the mix is still soft and you might get melted chocolate on the rack. Enjoyed myself though and fulfilled a promise to take some home made cookies in to work tomorrow (provided they don't all get eaten today) :)

Really simple recipe, I didn't have any vanilla extract, but they still tasted just as good and I mixed milk choc and white choc chips. Recommend to cookie lovers!! :)

I added a huge dollop of peanut butter and it tasted delicious, it was soft and chewy so overall and excellent recipe!

I forgot to add the caster sugar so will have try again next week! Still nice though!

Worked well. I used 2 bags of Aldi chocolate buttons, 1 white and 1 milk and they only cost about 33p so it's a cheaper version

I omitted the caster sugar completely as I found the recipe so sweet that it obliterated the taste of the fruit, chocolate nuts etc. The result was identical & the cookies were far more palatable without so much sugar.

Tried these many times including tonight. I think they're better with white chocolate and raspberry fruit buttons.

Yummy cookies! they came out brilliantly!...they should come with a warning : highly addictive!
my friends came back and ask for more...
They truly are easy to make and bake..i baked mine for 12min..but I think is an oven issue!
