Today's Review: Millie's Frozen Cookie Dough

I don't go to Millie's Cookies all that often, but I can't deny that they make a damn good cookie. But now you don't have to make the trek to your local Millie's Cookies stand to buy some professionally baked cookies, oh no, you can make the trek to Iceland instead and pick up your own batch of their frozen cookie dough, and bake those bad boys at home yourself. They come in three varieties, milk chocolate chip, white chocolate chip and triple choc. Fairly plain flavour, I know, but you have to start somewhere.

I followed the instructions properly, and equipped with my fairly successful background of cookie making I ended up with the plate up there. They passed the first test, they looked the part, and when it came to eating I was pretty impressed too. It's a nice soft cookie with a satisfying crunch around the edge (perhaps a bit too crunchy as I may have left them in the oven a bit too long). They're packed full of chocolate chunks, and the ingredients all taste pretty authentic, and they're definitely reminiscent of the real thing. So yeah, these are good, but the only thing that's holding me back from providing a great rating is the price of the stuff. 

This cookie dough will set you back £3 a box, and each box only provides six cookies. I know that's an improvement over the £4.19 that they cost in Millie's Cookies itself, but it's not a great amount of savings. Thankfully the dough is on offer for two for £5, but that's still not far off the £6.99 price for 12 cookies in store. Perhaps I'm just being pedantic, but I figured you'd get just a few more cookies for your buck. Still, I can't complain too much, this dough makes some pretty tasty cookies, and while you do run the risk of overcooking them, when you could pay a little bit extra and have them properly prepared for you, at least you can stuff these in your face while they're warm and fresh. I guess that's worth the price, there's not much better than a nice warm cookie.

My rating: 4/5


  1. These still anger me. They AREN'T Millie's and I don't care what anyone says! Millie's are soft and floppy, not crunchy. I've baked for 14, 11 and 9 minutes and they are all exactly the same in being WAY to hard around the edge. It's actually embarrassing to think the brand is trying to pass these off as the real deal. I AM SO ANNOYED. AND FRUSTRATED. AND WILL PROBABLY LASH OUT AT ANYONE WHO SAYS OTHERWISE IN A REVIEW. Rant over. Great post as always! Haha :D xx

    1. I'm sorry you've sunk so much money into something that's constantly disappointed you. Maybe you need to buy a Millie's style industrial oven for the real experience, maybe they'll release those next.

    2. I don't like your tone, sonny Jim. xx

    3. That sounds a lot more facetious than I intended. I appreciate your disappointment. I don't think I've eaten enough Millie's Cookies to really understand how rubbish these might be.

    4. It's all in the bants! :D. I've eaten a lot and I'm a baker so clearly not the best judge anyways haha. xx
