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!

These are lovely and a firm family favourite - they are lovely when warm, very soft and chewy. The next day they crisp up and are more biscuit like which still taste really good.

These were very easy to make, however I am glad I scrolled through a good 7 pages of comments as many people suggested using less sugar and butter (which I did). And even then, I found them too sweet, so next time I won't bother using vanilla essence either. I made 3 batches, the first batch of a cooking time of 7 minutes which came out so gooey even once out of the oven and cooled that it seemed impossible to pick up and eat. The 2nd batch of a cooking time of 10 minutes which came out perfect. And my final batch of a bake time of 12 minutes which were slightly crisper than the 10 min batch. It's a great recipe and they went down very well with everyone who tried them.

Never thought I could make these, but they are so easy, just as good as what you would buy. So far I've made, chopped nuts, choc chip & sultanas, all just as good as each other. I will continue to make these and never buy any again :-) The only thing I changed was the amount of caster sugar, I only used 100g rather than 125g, I think you could get away with adding even less than that though and I baked for 12 minutes and they still come out chewy with a slight crunch on the edge... yum!

Always makes perfect cookies! So easy to customise too, the favourite in our house is white chocolate chip and cherry flavour!

Made these a couple of weeks ago for our group meeting at work. The only variation I made was to add 150g of choc chips and 50g of butterscotch chips (definitely recommend the butterscotch - it leaks a bit from the cookie onto the try but peels away when cooled and doesn't burn too much if you follow the cooking instructions in the recipe). At our meeting these went down a real treat. However, personally think they are way too sweet - something I only noticed if you try to eat more than one. So would consider taking out some of the sugar next time!

I've tried this recipe twice now and I've done exactly as it says and both times it turns out like cake mix and it won't roll onto balls so I have to keep adding flour till it is proper cookie mix

Most cookie mixes are more like cake mix just a bit thicker, other than those you roll with a pin. I used to make thousands of cookies and found that if i have wet hands it helps to keep your hands free of mix and they roll easier.

Love this recipe, always come out perfect and lovely and chewy. Today i substituted the Chocolate chips for 3 tbs of Mincemeat, what a fantastic festive treat!

These cookies are far to sugary for me. They don't taste like Millie's cookies at all and we measured the ingredients exactly.
