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!

I love making these but I switch it up and add coco and red food dye and the are amazing . Make them every week and I recommend making the to everyone to try out. No too sweet and not to crispy and leave until edges go brown and take them out and you bit and you get a crispy and soft texture at the same time ♥️

I made this but I doubled the recipe and got a really good bunch of cookies I made 20 and they were quite big I recommend this recipe to anyone it was really easy

These are awesome. If you cover the mix and put it in the fridge you can dip in to it over a few days to make hot fresh cookies too. Another way you can make them a bit different we found by accident. Our "walnut" size dough balls were closer to golf ball size. So after 6/7 mins they were more like little hills! I flattened them with a spatchula the cooked surface cracked a little, just like the shop bought ones, and put them back in the oven for anoother 4 to 5 mins and they came out perfect.

I've tried alot of different cookie recipes and this is the best one I've found... I make them with white chocolate and macadamia nuts...Yummy!

They are good but too sickly sweet. Half the amount of sugar and half the chocolate chips would have been much better. I think the recipe needs to mention that the dough has to be chilled in the fridge for at least 2 hours so the cookies don’t spread out too much and turn into a gooey mess.

It says above the recipe that this makes 12 cookies, and I wanted 24, so I doubled the amount of ingredients I used and somehow I ended up making enough mixture for at least 60 cookies. I’m not complaining, my family love them, but I’m very confused... any explanations? My calculations were definitely correct.

Best cookie recipe! They always go down a treat in my home.

Cautionary tale: if you don't have baking sheet (like muggins here) and use foil and grease it... complete disaster. Delicious though, if you don't mind scraping off cookie and foil bits like an idiot!

Just grease the baking tray next time, no need to add foil.

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.

Can you make the dough and freeze it? Thanks.

Do I use salted or unsalted butter?? :o) xx
17th Jun, 2017
I used unsalted as salt was added anyway and they came out beautifully , but I don't know if there would be a difference between using salted or unsalted
17th Feb, 2016
Has anyone frozen the mix and if so, what was it as good as freshly made?
5th Aug, 2014

This was absolutely delicious but i think a tad bit too sweet so maybe you could make a little bit less sugar. Other than that it was amazing!

Delicious! Very sweet. I used M&Ms instead of chocolate chips as I love a bit of colour. Make sure your butter is SOFT or the cookies won't spread enough (happened me on my first go). I'd also advise adding just a tiny bit more flour- about 10 grams extra, as some other commenters have said.

Recommend flattening your walnut sized balls into pancakes, as my first batch turned into cookie-balls.

Amazing recipe !! Been trying to make biscuits for years this is the first that tastes great just like millies cookies my family loved them. The dough was too sticky to roll so I used a spoon to measure and place on the parchment paper. Tested 4 and took them out when still sticky in the middle underneath as they dry a bit when cooling down. GORGEOUS the sticky bit turned dry and chewy nom nom

These cookies were great. I followed some suggestions and added some vanilla essence and for a kick I added some coconut essence and shredded coconut too. That made them even tastier. I will have to reduce the sugar next time though because I found them a little too sweet.

Add 25g cocoa powder and use chopped up white chocolate , works a treat!

The oomies I made in 7 minutes were too gooey to hold easily, so I rolled them up into balls so that the harder outside coated the gooey centre
