I had a nice little surprise when I opened my email today. My friend at Hilton had sent me the official recipe for DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies!
If you have stayed at a DoubleTree by Hilton location, you probably already know about the delicious, warm, gooey, chocolate chip cookies that are offered to guests upon arrival.
DoubleTree cookies actually have a fan following and have been around for a long time.
More than 30 million cookies are enjoyed each year and this recipe was actually the first food to be baked in orbit during experiments aboard the International Space Station.
Many people have tried to recreate this recipe at home, but only now has Hilton released the official version to create at home.
Here is what Shawn McAteer, senior vice president and global head at DoubleTree by Hilton had to say:
We know this is an anxious time for everyone. A warm chocolate chip cookie can’t solve everything, but it can bring a moment of comfort and happiness.
We hope families enjoy the fun of baking together during their time at home, and we look forward to welcoming all our guests with a warm DoubleTree cookie when travel resumes.
I couldn’t agree more with this statement. That’s why when I saw this recipe, I ran to the kitchen to make sure I had all of the ingredients to make this delicious comfort food for my family.
