The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies

My favorite thing about staying at a Doubletree Hotel is that warm chocolate chip cookie they give you when you check it. It is perfection! I was SO excited when Hilton released the recipe earlier this year. OMG! YAY! I whipped up a batch ASAP and I am happy to report that these cookies taste just like the hotel. We almost ate the whole batch in a day. Needless to say, they are DELICIOUS!

How to DoubleTree Signature Cookies

These chocolate chip cookies are very easy to make. Start with mixing together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Next, add eggs, vanilla, and lemon juice. Yes, lemon juice. There isn’t a lot of lemon juice in the recipe. I suspect they scaled down the version they shared with the public and that is why it is a small amount. I’m not sure how much of a difference it makes, but I added it to the dough.

Once the eggs are incorporated, add flour, oatmeal, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Finally, stir in chopped walnuts and chocolate chips. Divide the dough into 26 balls and bake.

As soon as Doubletree released the recipe, I started seeing pictures of everyone’s attempt at making the recipe. One thing I noticed was that a lot of the cookies spread when baking. They didn’t turn out like the hotel. I knew immediately how to fix that problem! You MUST chill the dough for a few hours before baking. This step will ensure you get PERFECT cookies!

Please note these cookies bake at a low temperature for a long time. Don’t worry, they turn out great if you follow the recipe AND chill the dough.

Can Cookie Dough be Frozen?

You can make the cookie dough and shape into balls and freeze it for a quick dessert later. There is no need to thaw the dough before baking the cookies. Simply add a few minutes to the cooking time. Watch the cookies and when the edges start to brown, take them out of the oven.

You can also freeze the baked cookies. I have a few bags of these Doubletree Chocolate Chip Cookies in our freezer right now. Pop them in the microwave for a few seconds and enjoy!

  1. Just made these cookies and all I can say is WOW!
    Made 15 and baked and in less than 10 minutes 8 were gone,
    will put rest in freezer these are beyond addicting.
    Thanks for the recipe I have yet to find a recipe on your website that
    has not turned out perfect and addicting.

  2. I’ve had this exact recipe for years! It circulated on the internet long before Pinterest. It’s my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe. The lemon juice is the acid necessary for baking soda! I’m very generous with the lemon juice, easily 1 or 2 teaspoons (white vinegar works here too). I also put my rolled oats in the food processor with the walnuts… keeps all the evidence (of *adult* ingredients) to a minimum if I’m making these for the kids.

  3. These are probably the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had! I love the chopped walnuts. I did make a mistake and bought mini semi sweet chocolate chips instead of regular ones. Actually, just worked great with little bits of chocolate throughout. What amazed me the most was what must be the size of the cookies when you divide into 26 balls of dough. I used a large spoonful of dough for each and made into a ball after chilling the dough and had about 50 cookies which were quite ample in size. Baked for 22 minutes and they are perfect. Really the best recipe! Thanks.

    1. you should be able to leave them out, but you will just have a little bit less dough so a few less cookies.
      Or you could try chopping them really fine and just put in a little bit-say 1/4 cup as long as no one has a nut allergy.
      I leave nuts out of some dessert recipes at times with no other adjustment…but it does add something to the overall flavor if you use them. But if I am baking for kids who don’t like them, I usually leave them out of things.

    2. Dianna, I’ve made this recipe without the walnuts, and found it was overly sweet and just missing “something. I have kids who hate walnuts, so I used 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/2 cup pecans and chopped them super fine in my food processor. I’ve done this MANY times, until I got busted by my oldest who SAW me add the nuts. DANGIT!!!

  4. Does “rolled oats” mean the old fashioned oats or the quick cooking oats? I want to make these as soon as possible!
