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!

One of the best cookie recipes I have found! Came out perfect! We found 9 minutes cooking time was spot on.

Just made these with walnut and a couple with dates and OH MY GOODNESS. so, so good. Highly recommend adding dates - they turn so fudgy and delicious. The crunch of the walnuts complements beautifully too :)

Made these cookies several times and my son loves them. Tried them with raisins as well. If you find them too gooey add a little more flour. They will be perfect . I just roll little walnut size balls in my hand and place on baking tray. I also go for 10 minutes oven time

Easy starter recipe. Recommend flattening your walnut sized balls into pancakes, as my first batch turned into cookie-balls.

Made these today with my son who's on half term and sadly they turned into an uncooked gooey mess. Followed the recipe to a T. Disappointing, and my son was too! :(

love this recipe. very easy and quick to make. I reduced sugars too,brown 80 g, white 100 g,as I didn't have white flour enough just about 80 g the rest 120 g used wholemeal.worked really well. I use ice cream scoop for cookies dough so they are the same size just press down a bit with the spoon.from my batch I made 12 cookies which disappeared in no time.

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.

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

Make sure you creamed the butter and sugar really, really well.

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

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.

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.
