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!!!

Ingredients

  • 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

Method

    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!

This is now my go-to cookie recipe for life! I've made so many batches since discovering it and am constantly having to point people in the direction of this recipe because they love them so much. So far have tried milk and white chocolate chips, milk chocolate and fudge and chocolate coconut, all delicious!

I have made these many times with different ingredients. Easy and delicious! Just like Millie's cookies.
Space them out well because they really expand!
Ten minutes in the oven is about right, so that they are just starting to brown at the edges. They might seem too soft but leave them to cool and they'll harden.
Also, I will use less caster sugar next time because they were just a bit too sweet.
I have made these with granulated sugar on a previous occasion due to not having caster sugar and they turned out fine!
I like to add a dash of cinnamon to mine.

Amazing cookies. Stayed brave and took them out after 7 minutes and they were gorgeous once cooled a bit. Broke up an old Easter egg for the choc chunks and it worked a treat!

Delicious but definitely need longer than 7 minutes. After 10 they were perfect.
Will be making them again and again.

Just made these with white chocolate chips and dried cranberries, super happy with them.
I was a bit hesitant to take them out the oven as they still seemed uncooked but they firmed up nicely and are wonderfully gooey. I left in for 10 mins.

Best recipe for cookies I have ever used! Absolutely perfect everytime. I wait till the edges are just browning then take them out and leave to cool.
I used smarties instead of choc chips and they're amazing!
Enjoy People!

These are amazing! I cooked mine for 10 mins at 180 in a fan oven and they came out perfectly.

Great cookies. Were perfect after 10 mins in the oven and still lovely and gooey inside. Putting 200g of choc chips looks way too much but is totally worth it for the gooeyness so don't be put off. Will look forward to experimenting with these :) for me it made 20 big cookies!

Just... wow! These were soo good. I left a batch in for 7mins and another for 10mins and the first batch dont look or taste like the've cooked properly. The second 10min batch were perfect. Great recipe

Fanastic recipe.

Extra things I discovered:
This produces two trays, swap the trays half way through cooking if one is at the bottom of the oven.
Ten mins on 180 fan is perfect.
You can omit the chips and vanilla and still get a tasty, satisfying cookie.
You can swap the chips for coconut but then it's a dryer mixture so I added 30g butter and that worked.
This produces 12-15 cookies, allow them to cool for 20 mins then freeze in smaller quantities. To defrost put in microwave on defrost for a few minutes.

These tasted delicious, the only thing I would say is that we cooked them for 8 mins and they were like dough still so maybe we should cook them for a little longer.

my 1st batch of cookies went very thin, so for my next batch I moved the shelf down and turned the oven down to 170 and this seemed to do the trick, feel sick now with all the sampling I've been doing. Lovely cookies.
