Doubletree Cookies: a Copycat DoubleTree Hotel Cookie Recipe

By  | 

A copycat recipe for Doubletree Cookies, the famous chocolate chip cookies from the Hilton Doubletree Hotels

Have you tasted the world-famous DoubleTree Hilton Hotel Cookies? They’re meant to make guests feel special so you know they must be something exceptional.

If you have tasted them, you’ll be eager to make this copycat DoubleTree cookie recipe at home. If you haven’t—you’ll be glad to try this copycat DoubleTree cookie recipe at home.

It’s especially perfect served warm with a glass of cold milk.

The cookies have the best chewy texture (not too hard, not too soft), they’re butter rich, and they have an insane amount of chocolate chips.

 

Chocolate chips are one of my favorite things.

When baking, I like to pop a few in my mouth for sustenance as I work. 😉

And I can’t forget the chopped walnuts. I’m even in love with eating the dough before it bakes!  But before we get to the recipe, let me tell you the DoubleTree cookie story.

And say thanks to Fleischmann’s Baking Powder for sponsoring this post!

Long ago and far away…well…in the early 1980s. Many hotels gave their VIP guests sweet perks such as specialty chocolates and mints.

DoubleTree Hilton Hotel decided they wanted each guest to feel special and cared for and they began gifting every guest with a delicious, freshly baked cookie.

It proved so popular that now they give out approximately 65,000 cookies every day. That’s more than 25,000,000 cookies a year.

The DoubleTree Cookie also does community service: Over 1,250,000 cookies have been donated to doctors, nurses, firefighters, homeless shelters, and food banks.

And like all good cookies, the DoubleTree Cookies are baked fresh on location every day. The secret recipe is protected so every guest gets the same delicious cookie at every one of their more than 500 hotels in over 40 countries and territories.

You can buy their cookies, too, from authorized sources that hold the secret recipe. But why wait when you can bake your own amazing copycat version?

Be sure to start with quality ingredients. Ingredients you can trust make a huge difference in kitchen creations.

You’ll taste the difference real butter makes. Use real chocolate chips and vanilla, too. Fresh walnuts taste the best. Sea salt is my choice over regular table salt.

And I especially like Fleischmann’s Baking Powder because it is aluminum and gluten free. Fleischmann’s has been inspiring confidence for over 100 years so you know they’re a perfect baking partner.

Even though I’m about to share a copycat version of the world-famous DoubleTree Cookie, I admit I sometimes tweak the recipe even more. I know—the nerve!

But recipe experimenting is one of my favorite things.

Fleischmann's Baking Powder

If you want to create a really decadent cookie, add about half a cup of coconut flakes and about half a cup of raisins or dried cranberries.

You can substitute one cup of white chocolate chunks for the chocolate chips, too. The taste is oh-so-excellent!

My advice? Bake the cookies both ways.

Do a little quality control, too. Snacking on warm, freshly baked cookies is good for the soul. Hotel guests all over the world would agree.

Ingredients for Doubletree Cookies

Before we get started, let’s get together the ingredients for these amazing chocolate chip walnut cookies!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (or oat flour)
  • 2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Fleischmann’s Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt flakes, optional

How to Make Doubletree Cookies

You won’t need to travel to enjoy these hotel cookies!

To start, pulse oats in a food processor until it resembles flour.

In small mixing bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.

In large mixing bowl, cream together butter and both sugars, 2 minutes. Add vanilla extract, lemon juice and eggs.

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients; mix with a spatula, being careful not to overmix. Add chocolate chips and walnuts; stir to combine.

Using cookie scoop, portion cookie dough onto lined baking sheet. Refrigerate cookie dough for at least 2 to 4 hours.

To bake: Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes until slightly golden.

Cold milk, hot chocolate, tea, or full-bodied coffee make delightful dunking beverages.

Better bake some quick. Why should only hotel guests feel special and cared for? As Dorothy always says, “There’s no place like home!”

And there’s no cookie recipe like this copycat DoubleTree Cookie recipe. It’s the best.

        I use a silicone baking mat but you could also use parchment paper. Enjoy 🙂

      Can you refrigerate dough without portioning out on baking sheet?
