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!

Very good, very easy. Used less sugar as suggested in many comments, about 150g. Also, half of the choc chips (dark choc). Will make again.

I suggest reducing the sugar and leaving in the oven a little longer

I found the mixture too wet and sticky and was unable to shape them. I had to add more flour which meant the taste wasn't the same.

Totally amazing! Would recommend using less sugar though because the cookies are so sweet! Apart from that amazing cookie recipe. Will definitely use again!

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!!

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

This was absolutely delicious but i think a tad bit too sweet so maybe you could make a little bit less sugar. Other than that it was amazing!

Delicious! Very sweet. I used M&Ms instead of chocolate chips as I love a bit of colour. Make sure your butter is SOFT or the cookies won't spread enough (happened me on my first go). I'd also advise adding just a tiny bit more flour- about 10 grams extra, as some other commenters have said.

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

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!
