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 easy to make and extremely tasty. I'll definitely make them again!

I love this recipe! They are really yummy especially if you leave them quite doughy! But they are a bit unhealthy!

Love these and we make them fairly often but never worked out the calorie content until today... just to let you all know they will set you back approximately 210kcals a cookie... i certainly won't stop making them but stop kidding myself they are 100kcals each and stick to eating just the one :)

These just won me a cake stand at the office Bake Off charity day! Used plain chocolate chip this time.

This is a brilliant recipe, I've made the cookies everyday for a week using different flavors and add-ins, like chocolate chips or ginger. Though at first you need to mess around with timings, once you get it right the come out perfect every time.

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!
