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!

Way too much sugar. Cookies are too sweet to eat!

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!!

Made a batch of dough yesterday cooked off half and stored half for today! What a lovely sweet chewy cookie just like Millie's! My daughter has a nut allergy and can't risk eating store baked cookies so I was over the moon to be able to make these for her x the recipient is easy to follow. We used exact measurements but I used a little extra for on my hands to roll the dough into a sausage. We also put the dough in the refrigerator for 1hr before baking the first batch. I can see I'll be making this recipe a lot.

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 ♥️

Hi, if you've only got a fan oven, what temperature should you set it at?
17th Jun, 2017

How many does this resipie make? Thanx planning to mak tommorow for my nan
17th Jun, 2017
Depends how big you want the cookies, but each time I did it it made 9
16th Apr, 2014
depending on the size makes between 12 and 15. They do spread considerably so I tend to use less mixture but still get 15 really nice size cookies

Really easy to make but do just put the cookies on the paper and staight into the oven? I had a near accident and had to put them on a baking tray??

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

Instead of chocolate chips, I break up a bar of chocolate orange. It's delicious and flavours the whole cookie.

These cookies are delicious! I make the dough as per the recipe, bake a small batch (there is only 3 of us), then put the rest of the dough in the fridge - this can be used straight from the fridge, and the cookies are just as good (so far the dough hasn't lasted for more than 24 hours/so I can't say how long it would be good for!). I only cook for 7 minutes, but they definitely need a further 7 minutes on the side to cool and 'solidify'.. I should also say that I've never yet got these cookies to look like the pic .. But I quite like the home made look!

Baked for 8 mins for lovely squishy cookies. Leave on baking tray for about 10m before transferring to cooling rack to give them time to firm up a little.

Try milk and white chocolate chips together

Luvbags100 Everyone liked these cookies, I didn't add brown sugar or vanilla extract but added peanut butter Instead and baked for 8 mins. Delicious!! Chewy and easy, quick to make.

Instead of the light brown sugar I put 2 tbsp condensed milk as I had some left over... so gooey and delicious, and not too sweet! Also for oatmeal/raisin, I left out 50g of flour and replaced with oats, replaced the brown sugar with 2 tbsp honey, and raisins instead of choc.
