Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

I really have really had the urge to bake something recently and wanted to bake some sort of treat as we haven't got many in house. As I was googling some recipes I came across BBC Good Food's Millie's Cookies recipe and had to try it!

I have never had a Millie's Cookie but have always wanted one so I was intrigued by this recipe.

For the ingredients you will need:
  • 125g softened butter (I used a margarine-already soft)
  • 100g light brown soft sugar
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1 lightly beaten egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • half a teaspoon salt
  • 200g chocolate chips

Now I didn't actually have an chocolate chips so used milkybar buttons and Tesco value plain chocolate cut into pieces.


Preheat the oven to 180ÂșC. Line (I used 2) baking trays with greaseproof baking paper.


Add the butter/margarine and both type of sugar to a bowl and cream together. Once done add your lightly beaten egg and vanilla extract and stir. (I beat the egg in a separate bowl with a beautiful coloured whisk from M&S or you could use a fork).


Sift in the flour and salt, stir together. Then add the chocolate chips and stir one final time.


Grab walnut size balls of the cookie mixture and put onto your baking trays. Put into your oven. 

I personally put the cookies in the oven for 14 minutes and swapped the trays round on the oven selves half way through this time. 

This recipe made 12 large cookies.

For a more "Millie's Cookie" effect heat the cookies in the oven for a shorter amount of time. BBC Good Food recommend 7 minutes, but it's up to you! Just keep an eye on them and take them out of the when you feel they look to your taste and preference.

After they have been cooked take them out of the oven to cool, whilst leaving them on the baking trays.

As I made my cookies I took pictures of each stage so you could see how they should look through out the making and baking! 

Hope you try out these cookies, it is a great recipe, they were so easy to make and taste so so good!
