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!

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..

Really good! I quartered the mix to do a test and still got 14 small cookies out of them! I made them with crushed oreo instead of chocolate chips and they were amazing. I would have made more if I hadn't kept eating the mixture! I only had to put them in for 5 minutes, because they were small, but they were good little treats. Making more next time! Definitely would reccommend.

Really good but I doubled the mix because I had to make cookies for 24. Even with me eating a lot of the mix and making quite big cookies I've ended up with 54! Luckily I don't think I'll have any trouble getting rid of them.

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

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!).

These cookies turned out great! They were delicious warm and tasted really nice and gooey in the muddle. The next time I made these, I used white granulated sugar instead of the caster sugar and they didn't spread as much.
