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!

It's a really good recipe, but I did as suggestions in comments, tweak the amount of sugar. I used about 125 grams of brown sugar and 80 grams of white sugar. To enhance flavours I also added some espresso. I baked them for about 10 minutes, but should have followed instructions and kept it at 7 minutes. All good gooeyness was gone. Will for sure make again.

Very good, very easy. Used less sugar as suggested in many comments, about 150g. Also, half of the choc chips (dark choc). Will make again.

I suggest reducing the sugar and leaving in the oven a little longer

I found the mixture too wet and sticky and was unable to shape them. I had to add more flour which meant the taste wasn't the same.

Totally amazing! Would recommend using less sugar though because the cookies are so sweet! Apart from that amazing cookie recipe. Will definitely use again!

Made this as a giant cookie (in a pizza tray lined with baking paper to cover holes) and iced it for my boyfriends birthday. He was surprised how nice it was! I reduced the sugar to 80g brown and 100g white but think I would reduce it even more next time. Also had to leave it in the oven 15 mins as it wasn’t cooked. Im an amature baker but the taste and texture was perfect! Fab recipe, would recommend!

These are fantastic I live abroad and miss Millies so much so was so happy when I tried these and they actually tasted like proper Millies cookies! I found after a few batches that I can easily get 20 from the amounts suggested, it also works well with gluten free self raising as tested and approved by a gluten free family member just takes 10 mins or so oh and keep them raised while baking and they come out perfect after 8-10 mins, I recommend using chunks of choc I used white they were amazing!!

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.

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
i just baked these cookies the middle of them is really, really greasy i think its the butter... what have i done wrong?

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

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!
9th Nov, 2017
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.
