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!

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.

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.

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!
