These are my well-loved Millies style cookies! They taste amazing and is one of the recipes that motivated me to bake more.
For this recipe, your gonna need the following:
- 125g softened butter
- 100g soft brown sugar
- 125g caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 225g self raising flour
- 200g chocolate
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
So, to begin, combine your sugars and your butter until its fluffy, and then add in your egg and vanilla extract!
Next, add in your salt and flour and fold it all in;
Now, the best bit! Chop up your chocolate in to peices or use chocolate chips and combine it with your mixture.
I used half of the mixture with cadbury chocolate and half of it with terry chocolate orange.
Now, wrap the mixture in some clingfilm, separating it in to two and put it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. The mixture is quite wet so it will be messy;
Once chilled, use a good amount of flour as a board and make little clumps of cookie dough and put it on to a tray with some baking paper.
I got about 22 cookies out of the dough, but it depends how big or small you want them to be.
The below picture, I packed the tray a bit tight, but they’ll be easy to cut apart when it’s cooked. It gives them a real homemade look, but if you prefer the rounded shapes, space them out a bit more.
Now, pre-heat your oven to gas mark 4/180° and leave them in for 15 to 20 minutes, making sure to check them over.
Let them cool on the rack with the baking paper below it for a couple minutes as taking them off too soon might end up with you losing half a cookie.
Once its cooled a little, use a spatula or cake slice or something else flat to lift the cookie from the paper and place it back on the rack. I find its best if they are put on upside down so the bottom can set more.
Once their cooled, you can store them in an airtight container and they can last for over a week (If you don’t eat them all by the next day like I do).
