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!

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.

Wonderful. I always like to play around with the fillings (chocolate, nuts, raisins, cranberries etc) and also sometimes add spices like ginger, cinnamon etc. Great chewy cookie recipe

I found the mixture a little sticky so did add more flour than the recipe asked for. I also froze the cookie dough in portion sized balls and cooked from frozen each time for warm fresh cookies each time. They were just as delicious from frozen as fresh.

Instead of adding more flour, try not adding the egg, I did this by accident and the dough wasn't sticky, and they turned out great!

Does anyone know if these can be done without egg? I.e. Replacing it with something else? My son has an egg allergy.

When I make this recipe the batter becomes very sticky and it is difficult to role the cookies into shape. I have made these a few times and each time they always taste amazing but I wondered if there is something I am doing wrong to make the mixture this sticky? Any comments on how to help is greatly recieved

try adding more flour to your worktop, rolling pin, or the mixture, makes it less sticky and hopefully easier to shape for you :)

Hey I found this too! I refrigerate the mixture before moulding. Still not great but I managed to shape them and cut shapes too :) hope this helps

How many calories in each cookie?

I found the dough too sticky to mould as it just stuck to my hands. I now refrigerate it before I mould it. I also find this makes way more than twelve as they spread out so much.

Made more but this time I baked them on a upside down muffin tray forming cups once they have cooled remove from tray place in a bowl and fill with ice cream makes a great combination

Terry's chocolate orange chopped up instead of chocolate chips = amazing!

Just baked these, dividing it up into 12 makes very big cookies, and that may be why it took me 15 mins @ FAN 170 to bake them? Still lovely and gooey in the middle with a nice crisp on the outside.

They are really good but definitely leave them on the tray a bit longer as they melt through the wire rack due to the chocolate still being melted if you only give them a minute!

I used galaxy chocolate instead of chocolate chips. It takes a little while to cut it up but they were THE BEST cookies I have ever had! Also, when they cool they really do harden- I didn't realise this on my first batch and overcooked them quite a bit because they were so soft coming out of the oven (Still delicious though!).

These cookies turned out great! They were delicious warm and tasted really nice and gooey in the muddle. The next time I made these, I used white granulated sugar instead of the caster sugar and they didn't spread as much.

I left out the salt the second time I made them, and it made them even more delicious! They were exactly the same in size, shape and consistency, but just slightly less sharp. I also recommend using 3 tablespoons of melted peanut butter instead of chocolate chips - scrummy!
