If you’ve ever visited a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel before, you’re probably familiar with the delicious chocolate chip cookies they offer guests upon arrival. These cookies have become somewhat famous over time, as they’re soft, chewy, and basically the perfect example of a chocolate chip cookie.

“We know this is an anxious time for everyone,” said Shawn McAteer, senior vice president and global head of DoubleTree by Hilton. “A warm chocolate chip cookie can’t solve everything, but it can bring a moment of comfort and happiness,” he continued. And for that reason, DoubleTree has decided to share this delicious recipe for the first time ever!

Step 1: Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed for about two minutes. 

Step 2: Add eggs, vanilla, and lemon juice, blending with mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, then medium speed for about two minutes, or until light and fluffy, scraping down bowl. 

Step 3: With mixer on low speed, add flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, blending for about 45 seconds. Don’t overmix. 

Step 4: Remove bowl from mixer and stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.

Step 5: Portion dough with a scoop (about three tablespoons) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about two inches apart. 

Step 6: Preheat oven to 300°F. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and center is still soft. 

Step 7: Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet for about 1 hour.

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 two inches apart. Bake until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.

Since we’re all spending the majority of our time at home these days, it’s always nice to whip up a batch of warm, comforting cookies. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe, DoubleTree by Hilton – we’re looking forward to making our very own version of this famous cookie!
