Chocolate Chip Cookie – Double Tree Hilton Recipe

Great news ! for those who love the complimentary arrival and 4 pm cookies at Double Tree Hilton hotels . They recently released their official secret recipe as a gesture to all their guests, who have to be at home during this pandemic. Although I have baked many variations of different chocolate chip cookies ,definitely wanted to try this recipe .So glad I did , as the outcome was awesome and everybody loved it. I had a quick glance at the ingredients in the recipe , the main difference from what I normally use ,is the addition of rolled oats, powdered cinnamon and lemon juice . I had all the required ingredients and was all set to bake them . It was great fun in the kitchen with my kids accompanying, and giving me a hand as well .

As with baking cookies as always, all the ingredients need to be at room temperature before hand. We baked some really big sized cookies in the first batch ,immediately after mixing the dough.The rest we refrigerated for about 2 hours to make later.The second set tasted even better , it could be the refrigeration which helped absorbing and marinating all the ingredients.The detailed recipe is below .I would highly recommend this recipe, it is definitely a winner at our home !

  4. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts using a spatula.

    Oh how I LOVE cookies and these look amazing Nisha! I’ve never tried refrigerating before baking, wouldn’t have even thought to do that. Can I ask, when you use cups, what size are you referring to, 250ml..? I have big cups at home 😂 Not that more cookies would be a bad thing, I could eat twice this amount quite happily!

      If you love cookies Caz, this recipe is definitely a keeper and must-try .The US equivalent of a cup is 128 g or 4.5 oz .I looked up the ml equivalent and it is close to 240 ml .And yes refrigeration of the dough before baking does some wonders. I would love to hear if you try making them.Thank you for stopping by !

      Thank you so much Sumith, appreciate it! They were just great ,one would especially love the texture of it probably due to the addition of rolled oats and yes they do melt in the mouth. Just about perfect!
