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

This isn’t just a copycat recipe, we have the actual official DoubleTree cookie recipe for you to try at home. It’s especially perfect served warm with a glass of cold milk. As are these amazing peanut butter oatmeal cookies.

Long ago and far away…well…in the early 1980s, many hotels gave their VIP guests sweet perks such as speciality chocolates and mints. DoubleTree Hilton Hotel decided they wanted each guest to feel special and cared for after a long day of travel and they began gifting every guest with a delicious, freshly baked delicious chocolate chip cookie.

But why wait when you can bake the real thing at home in your own kitchen?

 You will need:

  • 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 all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats (rolled oats)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • 2 2/3 cups Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 ¾ cups chopped walnuts 

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Nuts: If you do not like nuts or can’t eat them, you can leave them out of this recipe.

HOW TO MAKE THIS DOUBLETREE COOKIES RECIPE

The following is the official chocolate chip cookie recipe courtesy of DoubleTree by Hilton Hotels.

STEP ONE: Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar in the large bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes.

STEP TWO: Add eggs, vanilla, and lemon juice. Blend with the mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, then medium speed for about 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy, scraping down sides of the bowl.

STEP THREE: With mixer on low speed, add flour, oats, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Blend for about 45 seconds, but don’t overmix.

PRO TIP: Do not overmix or you may end up with crumbly cookies.

STEP FOUR: Remove bowl from mixer and stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.

STEP FIVE: Portion dough with a scoop (about 3 tablespoons) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about 2 inches apart.

PRO TIP: A large cookie scoop holds about 3 tablespoons of dough and should be the right size for these cookies.

STEP SIX: Preheat oven to 300°F. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.

STEP SEVEN: Remove warm cookies from oven and cool on baking sheet for about 1 hour.
