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!

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

These cookies are incredible! I cooked them for a bit longer than they said (seven minutes was definitely not enough) and they were perfect. They're so versatile too - it's really easy to make them totally unique. For instance, I added in coconut and dark chocolate chips and it was still delicious. In the past, I've also added in fudge bits. Definitely recommend!

I love this recipe and have made it thousands of times, and everybody at home loves it and all of the cookies are gone in a day. Definitely would recommend this recipe!

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.

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

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

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.

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

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!

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!
