DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe – DoubleTree by Hilton has released its top secret official cookie recipe! DoubleTree cookies have been a long time favorite for many travelers and something they look forward to at check-in. If you’ve ever stayed at a DoubleTree, you know exactly what I’m talking about. DoubleTree has decided to share the recipe in hopes that it will bring some happiness and warmth to kitchens around the globe as we all deal with the Covid-19 pandemic.
I made the DoubleTree by Hilton signature cookies and the family loved them. There truly is something different about the DoubleTree cookies compared to the typical chocolate chip cookie. I never would have figured lemon juice into the equation but the pinch of cinnamon makes sense. I’m always skeptical in regards to copycat recipes, but DoubleTree by Hilton made the recipe very accurate and very easy to follow. Yes, you really can make your own DoubleTree by Hilton cookies at home… but you might imagine yourself eating one while checking into a nice hotel on a fun vacation.
We gathered the DoubleTree signature cookie recipe from the Hilton website – https://newsroom.hilton.com/static-doubletree-reveals-cookie-recipe.htm and here it is below…
DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Makes 26 cookies
- ½ pound butter, softened (2 sticks)
- ¾ cup + 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 ¼ cups flour
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Pinch cinnamon
- 2 2/3 cups Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 3/4 cups chopped walnuts
DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe Directions
Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes. Add eggs, vanilla and lemon juice, blending with mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, then medium speed for about 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy, scraping down bowl. With mixer on low speed, add flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, blending for about 45 seconds. Don’t overmix. Remove bowl from mixer and stir in chocolate chips and walnuts (we had to omit the walnuts for a nut allergy and they were still fantastic!). Portion dough with a scoop (about 3 tablespoons) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about 2 inches apart.
Preheat oven to 300°F. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.
Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet for about 1 hour (we couldn’t wait that long and ate them warm…which was great!)
Cook’s note – You can freeze the unbaked cookies, and there’s no need to thaw. Preheat oven to 300°F and place frozen cookies on parchment paper-lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.
We hope the hospitality industry can recover from covid-19 and great hotel chains like DoubleTree by Hilton can fully recover. Until then, we really appreciate that they released this DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe for us to enjoy.
