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!

Woooww!!! These cookies are amazing. I decided to make some cookies on a whim the other day and this popped up when I searched. I've never been any good at making cookies for some reason but these are amazing! So tasty and the 7 minutes is perfect timing for gooey, squidgy cookies. Definitely going to use this as my base cookie recipe for future and my partner loved them! Only made them two days ago and they're all gone. Going to try making rolo cookies with this recipe and swap out the chocolate next time!

OMG, this recipe is fantastic, it became one of my faves! The cookies came out just like in the description, gooey inside and with crispy edges. Tip: I used 150g caster sugar instead of 100g brown + 125g caster sugar, and I still think they are a bit too sweet to my taste. They work very well with crushed wallnuts. Thank you for the recipe!!

Myself and my partner have made this many times but as a giant cookie! We make them for people's birthdays, writing on it with vanilla and chocolate frosting. I split the mixture in half and do half with white chocolate and half with milk chocolate chunks. We put the mixture on a 12inch pizza tray on baking paper and bake for about 20 minutes. Everyone has been very impressed, makes a lovely gift!

I've never had a Millie's cookie before, are they supposed to be quite so cake-like and dry? I thought I'd give this a go because it had such high ratings, but I didn't like this recipe at all - I think the vast amount of self raising flour was a bad move and I'd recommend half SR and half plain for a less cakey cookie. Think I'll be sticking to my regular recipe next time.

Made these yesterday for my little boy who loves cookies and he absolutely loved them ! great recipe although I did use less sugar like others had said i also used less chocolate chips 100g was more than enough.

Thank you so much for this recipe. But I had to make my own variation as it was too sweet. I used 50g brown sugar, 100g caster sugar, 300g S R Flour, 90g choc bits or white choc bits and I added 2 tablespoons of olive oil. I added the oil when the butter and sugar were being creamed.Everything else as per your recipe. I cooked the Millies cookies for 12 minutes 180 degrees. I have also added at times 1/3 cup blanched almonds. They are the best cookies I have ever made!
