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 the most amazing cookie recipe ever! Since I found it on this site about 3 years ago, it has never failed me - delicious cookies and always good for use in introducing oneself to new flatmates, work colleagues and at social gatherings! Nothing brings people together like cookies!

I love this recipe so much, I always take one out early to have while it's hot and gooey!
However, I always use about half the amount of chocolate suggested and also toffees are very good too!

I loved these! My timings were different though, after 7 minutes they were still not done. Think I did 14 the first time and they taste and look great but weren't soft, 3rd time I did 11-12 minutes and they were good ;)they taste great either way!!

Absolutely love this recipe. So simple and produces great results. If you want them soft in the centre make sure you take them out after 7 mins even if they look like they need longer - they will harden up as they cool and be perfect. I've made them with white chocolate and raspberry and peanut butter m&m's. For more tips go to www.curlyscooking.co.uk

foster kids were bored this evening so we decided to bake. I chose this as it seemed easy and quick. kiddo chose to do the original choc chip and used all the chocolate lol so I improvised and chopped up some wine gums! Have to say that theu are very like the shop bought ones if you get the timings right and I highly recommend my wine gum idea, makes them nice and gooey with some nice fruity flavours!

A brilliant recipe thank you. I made it with white chocolate chunks (chopped up bar of white choc) and the resulting cookies were very sweet but very delicious!

Made these with my granddaughter, they don't taste like Millie's, I haven't found a recipe yet that does and really don't think I will. I followed recipe, they made a lot more than 12, baked them for 7 minutes to get the Millie effect but they were just uncooked dough so I cooked them for a further 5 minutes so they were crisp on the outside but soft in the centre, I think you need to use your own judgement on these rather than using a timer. I have to say they are a bit too sweet for my taste. I usually make the Be Ro cookies and use a bar of dark chocolate chopped into chunks, think I will stick with them, they get eaten straightaway, unlike these which I will end up throwing away. Disappointed

Made these with Dove's Farm Gluten Free S/R flour so I could eat them as well! Didn't have choc chips so chopped choc buttons in half. The recipe made 20 cookies which started off walnut ball size and spread to size of digestive biscuit, and still had enough mix left to make 2 big saucer size ones. Taste gorgeous with chewy and crunchy texture. Will definitely be making again - and might get a bit more creative (peanut butter, smarties, fudge)

Absolutely delicious and very easy to make and adapt.
I made several batches for some fundraising - chocolate chip and peanut butter, double chocolate chip (cocoa powder added and reduced flour by similar amount), Terry's Chocolate Orange with the coca powder added, milk & white chocolate chip and today I have just tried the cocoa powder with supermarket crunchy orange sticks chopped up which were just as good as the chocolate orange but much cheaper.
I use an ice cream scoop to measure the dough and get a nice round, even sized cookie. Lakeland and Argos both sell them (the stainless steel ones that you squeeze to release the ice cream)

Great recipe , delicious cookies! My flat mates came out in their droves..it was like The Hunger Games.

These were easy to make with my 3 year old and tasted great. We used a chopped up mars bar instead of choc chips, lovely and gooey.

To make Dairy Free:
Replace softened butter with the same quantity of coconut oil.
The cookies still work perfectly, but the coconut oil adds a lovely subtle flavour. I also swapped chocolate chips for candied ginger. I baked for 8 minutes, gooey in the middle and crisp on the edges - perfect.
YUMMY.

I love this recipe; try different fillings too - trio of chocolate chips and fudge pieces all together are amazing!

I love this recipe its simple and makes brilliant cookies. I tend to use a bar of chocolate that I break into chunks rather than chocolate chips though.. its brilliant when you get a gooey chocolate chunk in your bite! Whenever I want to make different flavoured cookies, I just modify this recipe rather than using a different one.. I like to use milk and white chocolate chunks in the same batch or dark chocolate with a little orange zest. I won't use any other base recipe though!

Also if I'm just baking them for a few people. I make the normal amount and freeze some of the dough for next time. As long as you defrost it thoroughly, it makes perfect cookies just like the first batch!

I bake at least once a week and this recipe is now baked weekly if not more often. Huge hit with everyone who has visited.
