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!

Thanks for posting this recipe, I have just made these cookies and they have turned out fantastic. I added some ginger flavouring for some and some almond essence for the rest. This is definitely the best recipe I have ever used & will be recommending it to friends.

Just made these cookies for the 2nd time. The 1st time I followed the recipe exactly and althpugh they were scrummy, I thought they were far too sweet. Today, I only used 80g of light brown sugar & 100g of castor sugar. I devided the dough & added 2 x crumbled cadbury's flakes to one half & oats & sultana's to the other & made small cookies. (18 x chocolate & 12 oat & sultana). I cooked each batch for 10 minutes. They are both DIVINE. I don't think they'll last long.....!!

I just made them. Really great cookies, just little bit sweeter. Easy and fast to make. I did not put egg and I put "Smarties". I did not want to play a lot with the recepie,almost nothing, just wanted to see how they are plain. And they taste and smell wow! Next time, less sugar, some oats in, cranberries... Thank's for cookies, who ever post it. Guys, enjoy!

This is a CLASSIC recipe, I have been making these for over a decade with this same recipe and they are often requested. They are sweet and chewy and absolutely delicious. I always melt the butter first and stir in the sugar to the warm butter, then add the chocolate chips right at the end so they don't melt. One of my favourite recipes of all time!

Brilliant recipe, usually cookies can go greasy but this combination is perfect. I used choc chunks which went lovely and gooey. Used slightly more flour which was good. Also rolled into a sausage shape in cling film and froze for an hour. Put half the dough in a deep 10cm square tray and top with ice cream...!

Made these many times . I substituted the choc chips with 100gs of oats and cook for 10mins for a crispy but chewy cooky. Place large chocolate drops on cookies as they come out of the oven or small chunks of fudge or drizzle with a chocolate of your choice. The varieties are endless. I make a double batch almost every week. I don't make them too large so that I can get about 40 -45 from a double batch.

I ALWAYS use this recipe whenever I make cookies, always has a great turn out and great feedback! So glad I found this recipe, will definitely use it in the future. Tip: they're also great with mini rolo's instead of choc chips!

Wooooow..They are fantastic. this is my 1st time for cookies.But they worked really well. As many others said i too reduced the amount of sugar to 200g. (100g brown + 100g white) Still they can be reduced.Probably next time.. Anyway this is highly reccommened. But my backing time was 25min in 180 C.They are crusty and yummy..
