    I've been looking for a good recipe for soft cookies for about 2 years and cannot find one anywhere.
    I love Millies cookies, fresh cookies from M+S, Sainsburys etc etc. but hate spending so much money when I'm in town just because I haven't had cookies in so long!

    Does anyone have a recipe/know where I can get a recipe for this type of cookie?
    Thank you

    I'd like a recipe for these too! I think cookies are always a bit softer when warm, if that's any help!

    i love them - i ate a 5 pack in 10 minutes yesterday =/

    i just don't want to have to spend a fortune every time i have a craving for them (ie everyday!)

    i know they're only £1 for 5 or £1.50 for 10, but my nearest supermarket is about 7 miles away. i have to spend petrol money to get there =( as well as time

    I bought the Millies Cookies Recipe Book in the US last year. Here is the recipe for the classic choc chip cookies - makes up to 40 cookies (depending on size of course). I have 'translated' a few measurements:

    Note: 1 cup measures 200ml

    2 1/2 cups plain flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    250g/8 oz butter, softened
    2 large eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 cups (yes loads!) choc chips = about 12 oz/375g

    Preheat oven to 300 F (150 C) = moderately cool
    Sieve flour, soda and salt together and set aside.
    Using electric mixer, blend sugars and butter to make a grainy paste
    Add eggs and vanilla and mix until blended
    Add flour mixture and choc chips and mix with wooden spoon - do not overmix
    Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie shee, 2 inches apart.
    Bake 15-22 mins or until golden (mine always take a little less)
    Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
    If you want lovely chewy cookies, they need to ba a little under-done (soft to touch when hot) rather than well-done as they will then be dry and crispy.

    They also freeze really well.

    What, "add" and "mix"? :p:

    Just give it a go! Seriously, being able to cook is an uncommon but very much appreciated gift in guys! And it only takes practice
