A few year’s ago a friend of mine gave me the recipe to make the famous Millie’s Cookies. Taking the original recipe, I tweaked it slightly to come up with ‘Molly’s Cookies’ (Molly being my nickname!)
I first wrote about Molly’s cookies in this post but I thought the recipe was worthy of its own post as (1) They taste divine and (2) I’ve referred back to it so many times that it would be good to use the search bar now on my homepage and find it easily!
So let’s get started. Here’s what you’ll need…
Molly’s Cookies ingredients
- 125g unsalted butter (softened)
- 100g light brown soft sugar
- 125g caster sugar
- 1 egg (lightly beaten)
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 225g self-raising flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 150g chocolate chips (or better still, chocolate broken down into small chunks)
The above will make around 25 cookies in total.
How to make Molly’s Cookies
- Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4
- Cream together the butter and sugars. Once creamed, combine in the egg and vanilla extract.
- Sift in the flour and salt, then the chocolate chips. (I didn’t bother with the sieve and they turned out delicious!
- Roll into walnut size balls (for a homemade look), or roll into a long, thick sausage shape and slice to make neater looking cookies.
- Place on a baking tray – you can used ungreased baking paper but they fine on just the baking tray.
Now, if you want really gooey cookies, then you’ll only need to bake them for around 7 minutes. But if you want them golden around the edges, bake them for 10 minutes.
When you take them out of the oven, leave them to harden for a minute before transferring them to a wire cooling rack.
The cookies taste amazing when they’re warm, but they also store well if you can’t eat them all straight away. I tend to put mine about 10 in a disposable food container (wrapped in greaseproof paper) and I give them away as gifts to my neighbours, leaving a few for myself and the family (naturally!)
Making Molly’s Cookies is really straightforward so it’s a great one to do with the kids. They’re also relatively quick to make too and make great gifts if you’re invited over to friends or for someone’s birthday.
If you do make the cookies, let me know how you get on – I’d love to hear if you enjoyed them!
