DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe Ingredients
*Ingredient amounts are located in the recipe card at the end of this post.
Butter: For this chocolate chip cookie recipe, you can use salted butter or unsalted butter. Just make sure that the butter has softened to room temperature.
White Sugar: Use white granulated sugar.
Light Brown Sugar: This helps add flavor to the cookie dough.
Large Eggs: Large eggs work best in this recipe.
Vanilla Extract: Another ingredient that adds flavor to the cookies. I like to use pure vanilla extract, but imitation extract will work as well.
Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice: This will add a little bit of tang to the cookies. You can substitute a splash of white vinegar if necessary.
All-Purpose Flour: This is the best type of flour for these cookies.
Rolled Oats: These can be found on the breakfast aisle at most grocery stores. Quick oats can also be used.
Baking Soda: Baking soda is used to help the cookies rise.
Salt: Helps to balance out the sweetness of these cookies.
Cinnamon: Just a little bit of cinnamon is needed to add a boost of flavor.
Nestle Tollhouse Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: Hilton uses Nestle chocolate chips, but other brands of chocolate chips will also work.
Chopped Walnuts: DoubleTree hotel uses these in their cookies, but they can be omitted if desired.
How to Make DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies
 Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes.
 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 or use a dough hook attachment.
 Preheat oven to 300°F. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.
 Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for about 1 hour.

How to Freeze this Cookie Dough
This recipe for DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies makes about 26 cookies if you use about 3 tablespoons of dough per cookie.
That is a lot of cookies for my family of 5. The great news is that you can make this cookie dough ahead of time, freeze the dough and have freshly baked cookies whenever you want!
Here’s how to do it:
- Prepare the cookie dough as directed.
- Use a cookie scoop to drop balls of dough onto a plate or small baking sheet lined with parchment paper that will fit into your freezer.
- Freeze the cookie dough for about two hours, then place in a freezer ziplock bag and store in your freezer until ready to bake.
To bake the cookies from frozen dough:
- Preheat oven to 300°F 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.
How to Store These Cookies
The best way to store these in at room temperature in an airtight container. They will last 3-5 days.
