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!

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

Very easy recipe to follow and don't take long to make. Taste just like Millie's cookies, I am pleasantly surprised and everyone loved them.

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.

I just made vegan versions of these, I used dairy free spread instead of butter, and was planning on using a flax egg (1 tbsp milled flax seed + 2.5 tbsp water), but I forgot to put it in and didn't realise until after I'd ate one. They were delicious and gooey in the middle so you can just omit the egg altogether without replacing it (and this way you can eat the cookie dough without worrying about getting food poisoning). If you want a firmer cookie, add the flax egg. Note: I did use oat flour instead of self raising and just added a tsp of baking powder to the mix so they'd be nice and airy.

Try adding a Touch of sunflower oil. Sounds weird but it works

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

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?
17th Jun, 2017
I used mine using the fan oven setting and I still just used 180°C

17th Jun, 2017
Depends how big you want the cookies, but each time I did it it made 9
16th Apr, 2014
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

Really easy to make but do just put the cookies on the paper and staight into the oven? I had a near accident and had to put them on a baking tray??
17th Jun, 2017
Put them on paper and then put the paper on tray

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.

Try milk and white chocolate chips together

Luvbags100 Everyone liked these cookies, I didn't add brown sugar or vanilla extract but added peanut butter Instead and baked for 8 mins. Delicious!! Chewy and easy, quick to make.

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!
