Hilton released the official DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie recipe this month and I couldn’t get into my kitchen fast enough.
Who can say no to sinfully good, impossibly delicious DoubleTree cookies? Calories be damned (at least for the year 2020…and 2021).
The cookies baked up beautifully and are every bit as delicious as you’d expect them to be. They’ve certainly brought a bit of homemade happiness to my house!
Ingredients for DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Light brown sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
- Rolled oats (not quick oats)
- Baking soda
- Nestle Tollhouse Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- Chopped walnuts
Why put lemon juice in chocolate chip cookies?
It helps make a chewier cookie! The lemon juice also reacts with the baking soda to give the cookies lift.
How to Make DoubleTree Cookies
Cream the butter and sugars together, add the eggs, vanilla and lemon juice and finally the flour and dry ingredients.
Next stir in the chocolate chips.
And then the chopped walnuts.
Do you need to chill Doubletree cookie dough?
Nope! As soon as you mix up the cookie dough and drop it onto the cookie sheets, you can bake them!
What size should I make Doubletree cookies?
Use a 3-tablespoon cookie scoop to drop the dough onto parchment paper-lined cookie sheets.
The cookies are going to be big and should be placed about two inches apart on the cookie sheet, so I only put nine scoops of dough on each tray.
The cookies get baked for about 20 minutes then stay on the cookie sheet and cool for about an hour.
What makes DoubleTree chocolate chip cookies so special?
Because this is the official DoubleTree Hotel recipe directly from Hilton, you know you’re getting the real deal with these cookies! But otherwise, they’re big and chunky and loaded with chocolate chips, oats and walnuts for premium taste and texture.
It’s truly a treat to eat a Hilton DoubleTree cookie and now that we have the actual recipe, we can bake them anytime we want!
Can I freeze the chocolate chip cookie dough?
You bet! Once you’ve scooped the unbaked cookie dough onto the cookie sheets, freeze them until solid then store in an airtight freezer container until ready to bake. No need to thaw.
How to store DoubleTree chocolate chip walnut cookies
All cookies are at their best within the first few days, but they can be stored in an airtight container on the counter for 3-4 days.
