This recipe is as close as we can get to our favourite Millie's cookies. For the perfect soft, chewy texture, bake them for no more than 7 minutes. Take them out and let them set as they harden up a bit more. 




  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, (fan 180°C, gas mark 4) and line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.

  2. In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugars until pale and fluffy then add the egg and vanilla extract and mix together well.

  3. Sift the flour and salt and then add to the egg mixture. Mixing thoroughly until a soft dough forms. Finally stir in the chocolate chips.

  4. Break off walnut sized pieces of the dough, and roll into balls. Place these on the baking sheets leaving space between them as they will spread out during baking.

  5. Place in the oven and bake for 7 minutes for the ultimate Millie's experience, or 10 minutes if you prefer a crunch. Leave to cool on the trays for about 10 minutes then transfer onto a cooling wire to cool completely.


    These store for about 4 days in an airtight container.

    Oh my goodness these cookies are delicious. I used smarties instead of choc chips for the kids, they loved them and so did daddy. Brownie points for mummy 😉

    The people who commented saying theirs took ages or were cake like MUST have done something wrong, or their oven is screwed up. I followed the recipe and all instructions exactly and these cookies were MAGNIFICENT. Best I’ve ever made. Eating one hot was the highlight of my day! Thank you!

    Made today while face timing my nieces during lockdown.

    Leftovers. We done different sizes but taste fanastic...

    I’ve searched high and low for the perfect cookie recipe... I have FINALLY found it! Thank you so much! When they first come out of the oven they were still quite mushy but let them cool a little for a few minutes and they are warm and gooey - just like Millie’s cookies!

  5. 5 star rating

    The best cookies I have ever tasted. Didn’t have all the right ingredients and still came out great. I only had plain flour so added baking powder and used a combination of white sugar and coconut sugar instead of what was in the recipe. Also only had 100g of choc chips, So don’t be afraid to make swaps! will definitely make these again!

    I experimented with 4 batches, times and heat. 200 for 9 min was the closes I got to perfect however equally my teenagers who are obsessed with millies approved all 4 batches.

    These cookies are amazing! I have never baked before but these are so easy to make. I left mine in for 8-9 mins and left to cool and they were perfect chewy on the inside and crunchie on the outside!

  10. 5 star rating

    OMG best recipe EVER! In cookie heaven. I leave for 8 mins in the oven.

  11. 5 star rating

    Made these cookies for the first time this morning. Wow!
    I used a mix of white, milk and dark chocolate chips and subbed the vanilla essence for salted caramel flavouring.
    Lovely crunch to the outside and soft and gooey in the middle.
    Will definitely be making these again.

    Ive used this recipe many times in the last year, 11 abs 12yo love baking this just before midnight for a snack. I just let them go for it as long as they give me one... yummy. Making a batch up right now as we're needing a pick me up at end of lockdown.

    Amazing Cookies!! I tried them and they came out perfect

  16. 5 star rating

    So easy to make and utterly delicious. I use 100g of choc chips & I bake them for 10 mins. The first batch made 35 cookies, second batch made 27. It depends how big you roll your ball of dough. Remember to take your butter out of the fridge to allow it to soften (we live and learn)

    So good!!

    Absolutely gorgeous cookie’s my children said they were the best they’ve ever had and I have to agree... YUM!!

  22. 3 star rating

    They tasted good but nothing like millies cookies and very much like a cake. I wouldn’t recommend this recipe as the self raising flower doesn’t work.

  23. 5 star rating

    Probably the best cookies ive tasted last well too 👍

  24. 5 star rating

    😋 Delicious!I like the chew but not enough crunch.First try= AMAZING 😃

    the simplest recipe ever and turned out absolutely amazing. they were gone in 2 days! thankyou xx

  26. 5 star rating

    Fantastic recipe!! Every time I’ve ever made cookies they came out more like cakes....but this recipe had so many good reviews I thought I’d give it a go & I was not disappointed!! Perfect, chewy cookies with a slight crunch on the outside....will never try another recipe again!

  27. 5 star rating

    Just made these with white choc chips. Absolutely amazing. Just like millies cookies. Thank you!!

  28. 5 star rating

    These cookies are amazing so chewy and lightly crunchy on the outside!
    Top tips, Make sure to chill the batter before you bake them so the butter doesn’t melt too fast and make them greasy. 2 don’t over bake- the middle looked slightly raw and gooey, but they set up perfectly.

    Good recipie

  30. 5 star rating

    Best recipe ever for the ultimate soft chewy cookie. Ignore the bad reviews they must have messed up with their measurements.

  31. 1 star rating

    Wanted to try as I had run out of plain flour so needed to use self-raising. Really didn’t work, cookies were just cakey and fell apart, not chewy and gooey like a Millie’s cookies. Wouldn’t recommend at all. Stick to plain flour cookies.

  32. 5 star rating

    Wow! These are incredible. I have never been able to make cookies because ethey are always a weird consistency but these are just perfect. Would definitely recommend to anyone who likes soft cookies.

  33. 5 star rating

    I was really dubious about using SR flour for these cookies, but thankfully they turned out great. I had to add a little extra flour, but I think that's because my egg was large, and I definitely had to cook them a little longer than stated. Overall really happy and will be using it as my go-to cookie recipe

  34. 5 star rating

    Brilliant recipe will definitely make this again

  35. 5 star rating

    Absolutely obsessed with this cookie recipe! Perfect cookies everytime! Thankyou!

  36. 5 star rating

    So close to millies. Have substituted the choc for oats and raisins, white chocolate, raspberries nuts alsorts and always come out amazing!

  37. 1 star rating

    The timings are complete rubbish on this recipe, 15 minutes in the oven for me and STILL wet in the middle

  38. 5 star rating

    First time making these are they are SO good. Followed the recipe and added in a mixture of chocolate chunks as that’s all we had available. Definitely taste like a Millie’s cookie 🍪.
    100% recommend this recipe. Easy to follow, quick and simple to make too. We weighed our mixture out into 50g dough balls and managed to make 13 cookies. We can’t wait to make these again next weekend. Trust me they don’t last long once you’ve baked them because they are just too delicious 😋

  39. 3 star rating

    These cookies are delicious but they are quite sweet but anyway they chewy and taste the same as Millies Chocolate Chip Cookies.

  40. 4 star rating

    This recipe is fool proof. Im not the best baker but these come out perfect everytime. Really good with dark chocolate chips.

  41. 5 star rating

    Discovered this recipe last week. Honestly amazing! Instead of chocolate chips I've been adding random leftover Easter chocolate. Best cookies ever!

  42. 5 star rating

    Super yummy and soft. Could eat a whole batch in one go!

  43. 5 star rating

    I was sceptical at 1st because the dough was really loose, but I had loads of random easter chocolate left over. I bashed it all in the dough, mixed it all up and chucked them in the oven. man they taste good.

  44. 4 star rating

    Way too sugary. Would do half recommended especially as it’s brown sugar and caster sugar It’s a bit excessive. But nice otherwise

    Thanks for this! Used flax as egg replacer and weren't sure if it would work but turned out great! My only error was made them a bit too big and so a little squashed as they started spreading. Know for next time to make a little smaller as will defo be making them again 👍🏼

  51. 1 star rating

    Honestly awful, why would you use self raising flour in a cookie?!!
    Followed the recipe and they’re more like cakes and nothing like a cookie, expanded ridiculous amounts and took ages to cook!
    Worst recipe ever!!!

  52. 5 star rating

    First attempt and they were amazing! Delicious when warm and soggy, even tastier after letting them cool. Thank you so much

  53. 4 star rating

    I made these yesterday and unfortunately they were very, very greasy. They were leaving grease stains on fabrics and when chewing my mouth would fill up with oil. Followed the recipe so not sure what went wrong !

    amazing time and time again

    Amazing cookies-the best recipe I’ve found and the whole family loves them. These will be a regular in our house. We used Lindt salted caramel chocolate as that’s all we had but they turned out delicious. Thank you

    I really love this recipe and whenever I fancy cookies I go straight here . I make them so they are soft on the inside and slightly crunchy on the outside. I can not explain how delicious these tasted . Would definitely recommended to anyone wanting a sweet treat without that much effort !

  58. 5 star rating

    Easy to do and taste spectacular. Thanks for the recipe.

  59. 5 star rating

    They’re really good! I baked them for around 15 minutes as they were bigger than recommended and they’re lovely and crispy on the outside while chewy on the inside. I will use this recipe many times in the future!

  60. 5 star rating

    Turned out perfectly. Switched the chocolate chips for sultanas and adds an extra beautiful chew to them. Highly recommended and taste just like the real thing!

    I never usually comment on these things but I feel like I've been looking for my perfect cookie recipe my whole life and this is it! I added milk and white chocolate chips and toasted hazelnuts to mine. Delicious.

  63. 5 star rating

    Excellent cookies!! Best recipe and so simple. First time worked perfectly. We’re in lockdown, didn’t have any chocolate chips, so used a mixture of all different types of chocolate (dairymilk, rolo, toffee crisp, quality street, crunchie, mini eggs...) worked great!

    I am a cookie lover and these did NOT fail! Do not make these when dieting as they are ridiculously moorish

  66. 3 star rating

    Taking ages to set too mushy so I put them back in oven. More flour next time! Not giving up!

  67. 4 star rating

    I definitely needed to add more flour as they were super sticky when putting on the tray. But looked amazing when they came out of the over. No more than 7 mins needed. Yum!

    Best cookies I’ve ever made!!!! WOW!!!

  81. 5 star rating

    Amazing - just amazing! Beautifully crunchy on the outside but soft in the middle, just what I look for in a cookie. I baked them myself and let’s just say I am not exactly a Michelin-star chef but my family loved them and it is now their favourite desert. Sometimes I make the batch but don’t bake it but put it in the freezer and take it out a day later,put it in the oven for a while-IT MAKES A GREAT COOKIE DOUGH!!!

    Just made these and was worried whilst baking them as they seemed to rise a lot in the oven. When they started to cool though they soon flattened out and were perfect fresh cookies.

  86. 5 star rating

    This is the one. I've been searching for years to find a recipe like this & the irony is that it's so simple

    My cookies didn’t spread out and I would say they’re a bit sweet too, still delicious though.

    We’ve made these cookies 🍪 so many times now and each time we’ve made they’ve been spot on. Chewy in the middle and crunch on the outside. We reduce the sugar slightly as are very sweet. 💯% 👌🏻

    Amazing recipe!! Within the day they had gone, Kids and grown ups loved them. I added some white chocolate chucks into my mix as well as the milk. I served them warm with ice cream perfect will be making them again.

  97. 5 star rating

    Been struggling to find the perfect cookie recipe for as long as I can remember. First time baking them and they came out super! I chopped some dairy milk chocolate and added that instead of ordinary chocolate chips and that tastes amazing! Highly recommend.

  98. 5 star rating

    These are absolutely amazing. I havent had a good experience making cookies in the past but i think these were perfect if I do say so myself. I got 21 good sized cookies (with smarties in) out of this and my dough was quite sticky, but it turned out fine.

  99. 5 star rating


  100. 4 star rating

    I've made these lots of time now, I also only use 100grams of chocolate chips and 100grams of mini smarties, and for my triple chocolate ones I use 10 grams less flour and add 10 grams of coco powder 100 grams of chocolate chips and then chop in half 100 grams of mini rolo's.

  101. 5 star rating

    I followed the recipe exactly the same but i had to add a cup more flower to get it to be a dough.
    everything else was perfect!!!

    the cookie is hard on the edges and chewy in the middle- just how i wanted it to be

    i recommend this!!!!

  102. 4 star rating

    I followed the recipe but mine didn’t spread out as it was suggested they would. Still taste good though

    The first time I made these cookies they were amazing! Which is why i'm. really confused on where I've gone wrong the second time round, the dough is to sticky to roll dough balls, I added more flour bt still a problem. I've made a second batch of dough n again it's to sticky so I've put it in the fridge to see if that helps.

  105. 5 star rating

    Brilliant recipe, very easy to make and great tasting cookies. My daughter said they are the best cookies ever..... now she knows her cookies.
    I switched it up, I used coconut butter and Smarties, better than the first batch apparently.

  106. 5 star rating

    I've always been curious how to make professional chewy cookies and thanks to this recipe I've produced some of the tastiest cookies that i've ever had. If anyone is looking for recipe that will guarantee great results then look no further than here.

    I have made these cookies lots and OMG they are just the best!!! Soft, chewy and just delicious.. my kid's love them, i love them.. just the best.
    I've tried to make them with a touch of cocoa powder, but it's not really worked very well. So im gonna stick to original recipe.. ❤❤

  110. 4 star rating

    Tasted good, but anyone know why my cookies didn't flatten in the oven. They were in walnut sized dough balls but didn't really spread to look like the Millie style cookie.


    Did you chill your cookies before baking? Chilled dough would hold their shape rather than spread out like you were hoping. Perhaps next time use the palm of your hand to gently press down on your cookies before baking to improve the shape.

    Happy Baking

    I made these following the ingredients as shown and found them well too sweet. I strayed away from the recipe shown and used 115g butter and 100g of each sugar 190g of self raising flour and 30g corn flour. After doing this the cookies where delicious
