Millie's Cookies
  • Serves: 20
  • Preparation time: 30 minutes


There's nothing quite like a melt in the mouth Millie's Cookie that's just come out of the oven. If you're a fan of the delicious cookies, you might be surprised to learn how simple they are to make at home. 

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C, gas 4.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar together until light and creamy. Beat the golden syrup into the butter and sugar with the vanilla essence. Mix in flour and chocolate chunks until just combined.
  3. Take a teaspoonful of the mixture, roll it into a ball, then place onto a greased baking tray, flattening it slightly with the palm of your hand. Repeat with the remaining dough, allowing plenty of room for the cookies to spread while baking.
  4. Bake for 12 mins until golden brown.
  5. Allow chocolate chip cookies to cool on the tray for few mins before transferring them to a wire rack.

Store your Millie's cookies in an airtight container or jar so they keep their fresh, chewy texture. 

To make double chocolate chip cookies, substitute 25g of flour with 25g cocoa powder.
