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!

First time baking cookies, and these were nicer than anything I've ever bought - Millie's Cookies included! Even with "cheap" ingrediants from Aldi, they were eaten incredibly fast.

Honestly one of the best cookies I've ever had! My family and I loved them so much I made another batch straight away. Definitely refrigerate for an hour before baking.

Really quick and easy recipe. My dough is always quite wet so I just splodge it on with a spoon and it seems to spread and make an even shape. I’ve made these so many times with varying times in the oven and 7 minutes is the favourite. They don’t look ready, but they flatten and firm up as they cool for the perfect squidgy cookie.

We've made this a few times - best cookie recipe. It's the only recipe I found that creates a chewy middle - 7 minutes! More like Bens cookies - which I personally prefer.

7 minutes is perfect ... don't be alarmed when they come out of the oven almost liquid. Leave them to cool and within 10-15 minutes they will have 'set' and be perfect cookies

Yummy cookies (but 7 minutes not enough) and as suggested below the addition of cocoa was perfect. Also made a batch with currants! Recommend:-)

Really delicious and easy to make but 7mins is definitely not enough time for the cookies to cook.

I split the dough and added nuts and chocolate chunks to half, baked them first for seven minutes and let them cool. Way too gooey. Cannot transfer otherwise they mush. The second half of the dough I added cocoa powder and left them in the 10 minutes and they’re perfect

Has anyone made these gluten free? Did/would you just swap the self raising four for gluten free self rasing flour?

I have made them gluten free. Swap the flour for a gf flour blend and reduce the amount to 200g. Gluten free flour tends to be "thirstier" and so your batter should be stickier than you would usually expect.

I use dairy-free spread and the recipe works fine.

Do you have to use light brown soft sugar, or can you use other types of sugar as a substitute?

Hi can you freeze the cookie dough to cook later on?
7th Aug, 2017
I froze the dough into portion sized balls and cooked from frozen for warm fresh cookies each time, they were just as good as the first unfrozen batch I did.
30th May, 2017
Can you make the dough and freeze it? Thanks.

Place straight on a baking tray, do not use parchment or a silicone tray as they will not work

These cookies are amazing!! The only things that I change each time is the sugar- I put 75g of brown and 100g of caster. Also, I put 100g of chocolate chips and I normally bake these around 10 minutes plus. Great recipe!

love these!! i had mine in for 8 mins and then left them on the side on the tray for 10 mins to harden up. lovely and gooey, just like Millie’s cookies! also, I added 1tsp of salted caramel flavouring to mine and they tasted so good!! also, I didn’t have caster sugar, only golden caster sugar and defo did the job ;))

I’d ran out of brown sugar so I used regular sugar instead, worked fine!

Did you use caster sugar as well as the regular sugar?
15th Sep, 2018
I love this recipe. My little brother nags me to make cookies and he adores this one. I never use the extra 100g of brown sugar though. It's far too much. Depending on what I've got in the cupboard i mix the sugars or just omit the brown sugar.

This Recipe is so goodd however, the amount of sugar is too much. You guys can lessen the amount of sugar. Brown sugar: 75 gr Caster sugar: 110 gr

I absolutely love this recipe its so easy yet so tasty . Instead of light brown soft sugar I use demerara sugar I find it works great too. I also only use 100 grams of chocolate chips as 200 grams would be way too much!
