Doubletree Cookies

If you’ve ever stayed at one of the DoubleTree Hilton Hotels, you probably have fond memories of the warm cookies they share with their guests. They are simply unforgettable.

This fantastic cookie recipe includes rolled oats, Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet chocolate chips, and chopped walnuts. They are chewy and delicious warm from the oven or at room temperature. Once you’ve tried one, you’ll understand why they are world-famous.

You can never have too many homemade cookie recipes. And, if you find yourself baking more often now that everyone is home, this is a must-make recipe.

Ingredient Notes

There are plenty of amazing chocolate chip cookie recipes out there, so you may be wondering what makes DoubleTree Cookies so special. Well, the secret is out. There is a tiny bit of freshly squeezed lemon juice in them!

The lemon juice reacts with the baking soda, making the cookies a bit lighter and chewier.

For gluten-free DoubleTree cookies, substitute the all-purpose flour with a one to one gluten-free flour blend.

Freeze the dough for anytime baking.

Just place scoops of cookie dough on a baking sheet that’s lined with parchment paper. Then, place the entire sheet pan in the freezer. Once the balls are frozen solid, you can layer them in an airtight container or put them in a freezer bag.

Then, just take out as many as you need and bake them according to the recipe. There is no need to thaw them first!

This way, you can enjoy a warm DoubleTree cookie whenever you want one.

Recipe Variations

This recipe is the one and only original, used by the DoubleTree Hotels. But, you can certainly make modifications to the recipe if you prefer.

Adjust the batch size

Sometimes, it can just be too tempting to have dozens of chocolate chip cookies in the house.

Use a different flavor of chips

Nut free option

While chopped walnuts are traditional, you can leave them out if you have a nut allergy. For a crunch without using nuts, try pumpkin or sunflower seeds.
