Great news! Today's recipe is Chocolate chip cookie that is DoubleTree Hilton recipe for those who love the complimentary arrival and 4 pm cookies at DoubleTree 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 beforehand. 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 to absorb and marinate all the ingredients. The detailed recipe is below. I would highly recommend this recipe, it is definitely a winner at our home!
Delicious chocolate chip cookie using the secret Double tree Hilton recipe
- 2 sticks butter room temperature
- ¾ cup granulated sugar plus 1 tbsp
- ¾ cup light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp lemon juice freshly extracted
- 2 ¼ cups flour
- ½ cup rolled oats
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 pinch cinnamon powder
- 2 cups chocolate chip cookies (I used Ghiradelli milk chocolate chips, original recipe asks for 2 ⅔ cups of Nestle semi sweet chocolate chip cookies)
- 1 ¾ cups chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 300°F. Using a stand mixer cream butter and sugar for 2 minutes.
On low speed blend eggs, vanilla , lemon juice for 30 seconds and then at medium speed for 2 minutes until it is light and fluffy. Scrape the bowl as necessary.
Add flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and blend on low for 45 seconds .Do not over mix.
Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts using a spatula.
Using an ice cream scoop (about 3 tbsp) place the dough 2 inches apart.
Bake for 20 to 23 mins or until edges are golden brown and center is soft.
Cool on baking sheet for about an hour and then on the cooling rack.
The unbaked cookies can be frozen .They can be baked at another time without thawing.
Happy baking and have a good day!
Thank you very much!

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 !

This cookie recipe reminds me of the cookies we'd bake for the pilots way back when I worked at the private aircraft terminal in Westchester Co, NY. The secret is the lemon juice. Just that little hint of brightness takes a normal cookie to gourmet cookie status. Yum!
How wonderful , that must have been exciting to work at the aircraft terminal and baking cookies for the pilots! The acidity from the lemon and the cinnamon in it must be doing some magic I guess, and as you rightly say taking it to a gourmet status . This recipe is a keeper for sure .I'm usually not a cookie fan but this one I can go on eating non-stop 🙂 Thank you so much for stopping by and the comments .
I never put cinnamon in chocolate chip cookies before, a great twist!
Yes same here, this was the first time I added cinnamon as well . It really has some magic that kind of makes the cookie exceptional 🙂 Thank you so much for the comments and stopping by!
Good One !
Thank you so much!

I've never stayed at one of these Hilton hotels or had their cookies. It's cool that they sent the recipe to guests who can't travel right now! Lovely gesture. The cookies look delicious. On my to make list!
Yes it was a kind gesture indeed ! I always wondered what they had in their ingredients which made it so delicious and different , so glad to know it now:) Hope you will like it as much as we do. Thank you for stopping by and the comments.
I love how these cookies didn't rise too much, which makes it look like they came out just the right crispiness. How generous of the hotel to share the recipe!
Thank you so much Beth, yes the crispinesss was just about right . It was really generous of them to share their secret recipe indeed! Appreciate your comments.
