Doubletree Cookies with Walnuts & Chocolate Chips

By  | Last Updated:  

The holiday season is full of surprises but move over Santa—it sure needs a lot of mom-magic to make it happen! I love creating seasonal goodies yet it takes a discriminating palate and a lot of effort to make everything yummy, merry and bright. How do you fuel your efforts? Every year I add to my arsenal of holiday recipes.


The problem isn’t finding something worthwhile; it’s more that there are so many to choose from! These Doubletree Cookies are a favourite. They have just the right amount of chewy texture but it’s the melding of flavours that is so seductive.

Doubletree Cookies

Ingredients you can trust make a huge difference in kitchen creations. Fleischmann’s has been inspiring confidence for over 100 years—making them the perfect partner for holiday baking. 

Fleischmann's Baking Powder

I especially like that Fleischmann’s Baking Powder is aluminum and gluten free.

Wouldn’t that add some merry to the holiday?

Meanwhile… do some quality control: Snacking on warm, freshly baked cookies is encouraged. It might be what keeps the mom-magic happening.
