Closest thing to Millie’s

Millie's cookies

Well the sad thing with this is that the cookies taste DIVINE, but unfortunately don’t look divine.  The good news however is that yours will not look like this.  Why I hear you ask? Because I didn’t have chocolate chips so used chunks of a bar of chocolate instead, but you all will use chocolate chips which will look loads neater.  Add the cup of milk for an even more fabulous experience (cookies and milk – yum!).

I made these because I fancied Millie’s but wasn’t about to drive all the way to get some and spend a fortune.

After trying many recipes I’d say this one definitely comes closest to the Millie’s taste and it is helpfully called ‘Millie’s cookie recipe’ on the BBC website (obviously not the ACTUAL recipe which I would imagine is a closely guarded secret).  They are absolutely delicious, hope you enjoy.

  • 125g softened butter
  • 100g light brown 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 the butter and sugar together and then stir in the egg and vanilla.
  3. Sift in the flour and salt, then add the chocolate chips.
  4. Roll into walnut size balls/
  5. sausage shape and slice to make neater looking cookies.
  6. Place on ungreased baking paper. If you want  the real Millies experience then bake for just 7 minutes, until the cookies are just setting – the cookies will be really doughy and delicious. Otherwise cook for 10 minutes until just golden round the edges.
  7. Take out of the oven and leave to harden for a minute before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
