Easy Bakes

‘Millie’s Cookies’ Recipe

Nothing beats a soft, gooey, cookie. Whether it’s Millie’s Cookie or not they are one o my favourite things to have with a cup of tea. When you get it right at home, they’re seriously good as well. The recipe is so easy as well, and all in one bowl (this is for the ones who hate washing up!) For me it’s always got to be white chocolate cookies…

As I said, this is super easy, quick, and makes a decent batch of 12, what more could you want? This recipe is hands down the best cookie recipe I’ve ever come across and works a treat. The trick mainly is in the baking time, don’t ever…ever overdo cookies! All you need is a bowl, handheld whisk, wooden spoon and a baking tray- the dream!

I probably say this too much but, again, make the cookies your own. Just swap the chocolate chips to whichever flavour of chocolate you want, perhaps toffee bits, dried fruit, it’s all down to putting in what you love!

This is again a winner all round for a bake. Even my boyfriend and Dad showed some enthusiasm for this, which is rare. If you read my blog you probably already know, they aren’t the biggest cake fans. White Chocolate? And Cookies? Apparently, that changes everything! I am joking of course, but they’re are great as most people love a cookie. I’ll be taking some into work as well, as I know they’ll go down a treat!

So this is Millie’s Millie’s cookies recipes….Enjoy!

Inspired by Millie’s Cookies..of course, and BBC Good Food.

Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 125g Butter, left to soften and little
  • 100g Light Brown Sugar
  • 125g Caster Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 225g Self-Raising Flour
  • 200g White Chocolate Chips

Method:

  1. Line and grease 2 baking trays with parchment and preheat the oven to 180 degrees. If you only have 1 don’t worry, just do two cycles of baking!
  2. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugars together using a hand-held electric whisk
  3. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract.
  4. Sieve in the flour and mix well.
  5. Roll walnut size balls and place on the baking tray, make sure you space them out a bit to give them room to expand. The cookie dough shouldn’t stick to your hands too much if it does add in flour a tablespoon at a time until its the right consistency.
  6. Bake the cookies in the oven for 7-8 mins. Leave them to set on the baking tray for 5 mins before transferring to a wire rack.
