Chewy on the outside and soft on the inside - these are a doddle to make!

Another tip I have found with these is to take them out before they brown, they will still be floppy but leave them on the tray and they will harden up. if you wait until they brown they will be too hard by the time they cool.

Very good indeed. I have always struggled to nail that millies type chewy cookie. Only comment would be they seem a little too sugary. I did use golden caster but ill be tempted to tone down the sugar for the next batch. I padded them out with muesli which seemed to work quite nicely. Ill be playing about with this recipe for sure to try and tweak it to perfection.

I've made these with both milk and white chocolate chunks, a chopped up 100g bar of Cadbury's Caramel (refrigerating it first helps the chopping) and M&Ms. Every time they're a hit!

Have made these about 10 times now, and always turn out great..have made them with toffee coated pecans.....crushed hazelnuts...white choc chips....walnuts....yummy. I always line my baking tray with greasproof paper, use a dessert spoonfull to measure, roughly shape them to rounds but don't flatten them, and find with my oven 11 mins is perfect cooking time. Thanks for supplying an easy, yummy recipe :)
