Who doesn’t love an indulgent, soft cookie from Millie’s Cookies? After stumbling across this recipe for the homemade version online one afternoon I couldn’t resist trying it out for myself and I have to say, they might be even better than the real thing!
It’s so quick to whip up a batch and impress everyone with your baking skills, when in reality you just need all the ingredients in a big bowel and give it a good mixing – kind of.
For the ingredients you will need:
125g soft butter
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 (I used a normal bar of chocolate all broken up)
- Firstly cream together the butter and sugars. If you’re lucky enough to own a Kitchen Aid this is your moment to dust it down. I used an electric handheld whisk. If you don’t have one of these a good old fashioned wooden spoon and some hard work will do just as well
- Once creamed and fluffy and the egg and vanilla extract and mix
- Sift in the flour and salt and then the chocolate
- Roll the mixture in small balls (about the size of a walnut) and place of baking paper
- Then simply pop then into a pre-heated oven at 180°C. For the true Millie’s experience (soft and gooey in the middle) bake for just 7 minutes. Otherwise cook for 10 minutes until golden around the edges
- Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Delicious warm with a cup of tea!
