For more than 25 years, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotels have been welcoming guests with a warm chocolate chip cookie at check in. That’s about 65,000 a day and around 25,000,000 per year! Now that DoubleTree has officially released their legendary cookie recipe, you can bake a batch yourself in your own kitchen.
DoubleTree Signature Cookie Recipe
- 1 cup (227 grams) butter, softened
- ¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon (162 grams) granulated sugar
- ¾ cup (165 grams) packed light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs (100 grams)
- 1¼ teaspoons (5 grams) vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon (1.25 grams) freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2¼ cups (281 grams) all-purpose flour
- ½ cup (47 grams) rolled oats

- 1 teaspoon (6 grams) salt
- Pinch cinnamon
- 2⅔ cups (453 grams) semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1¾ cups (198 grams) chopped walnuts
- Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes.
- Add eggs, vanilla and lemon juice, blending with mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, then medium speed for about 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy, scraping down bowl.
- With mixer on low speed, add flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, blending for about 45 seconds. Don’t overmix.
- Remove bowl from mixer and stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
- Portion dough with a scoop (about 3 tablespoons) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about 2 inches apart.
- Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C). Bake for 20 to 23 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.
- Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet for about 1 hour.
Cook’s note: You can freeze the unbaked cookies, and there’s no need to thaw. Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C) and place frozen cookies on parchment paper-lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.
