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!

To be honest you don't need much egg it's just to help bind it. I have used a little oil before to be fair and it turned out ok. And milk too x I don't use a while egg in mine anyways x

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! :(

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

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

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

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.

These came out perfectly, brilliant simple recipe! Just tried a combination of raspberry and white chocolate, lemon and poppy seed, and cherry and almond and it worked just as well! Recommended!

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!).
