Step 1

Preheat your oven to 180°C (160°C fan). Line baking trays with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, caster sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Step 2

Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Then, mix in the vanilla extract. Sift the flour and salt into the bowl and fold it into the mixture until well combined. Be careful not to overmix at this stage.

Step 3

Stir in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.

Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, scoop out portions of dough and roll them into balls. Place them onto the prepared baking trays, leaving some space between each cookie for spreading.

Step 4

Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until they are golden brown around the edges but still slightly soft in the middle. Once baked, remove the trays from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the trays for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.

Recipe Story

There's something undeniably comforting about the aroma of freshly baked cookies wafting through the kitchen, evoking memories of childhood and simpler times. For many, the mention of Millie's Cookies triggers a wave of nostalgia, conjuring images of warm, gooey treats straight from the oven. Today, I'm excited to share my homemade version of Millie's classic chocolate chip cookies – a recipe that never fails to delight both young and old alike.

To recreate that signature Millie's magic, I've carefully crafted a recipe that stays true to the original while adding a personal touch. It all starts with quality ingredients – butter, sugars, eggs, and flour – simple yet essential components that form the foundation of any great cookie.

Creaming together softened butter, caster sugar, and soft light brown sugar is where the alchemy begins. The resulting mixture is light, fluffy, and oh-so-tempting, setting the stage for what's to come. With each addition of eggs, one at a time, and a splash of vanilla extract, the dough transforms into a velvety canvas ready to be adorned with chocolatey goodness.

Speaking of chocolate, what sets Millie's cookies apart is their generous scattering of milk chocolate chips – those little morsels of indulgence that melt in your mouth with each bite. I've opted for a hefty dose of these luscious gems, ensuring that every cookie boasts an abundance of chocolatey goodness.

Once the dough is gently folded together, it's time to portion it out into perfectly round balls and lay them out on baking trays, ready to undergo their delicious transformation in the oven. As the cookies bake, the kitchen fills with an irresistible aroma, promising a reward worth the wait.

After a brief cooling period (if you can resist diving in immediately), it's time to indulge in a moment of pure bliss. With a glass of milk in hand, I take my first bite into a warm, freshly baked cookie – soft and chewy on the inside, with a hint of crispiness around the edges. It's a taste of nostalgia, a moment of comfort, and a reminder of the simple joys in life.

So here's to recreating those cherished memories, one homemade Millie's-style cookie at a time.
