Homemade Millie’s Cookies

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!
