Friday Faves...DoubleTree Hotel Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have no idea if they still do it, but back in the day when you checked into a DoubleTree Hotel
 they would give you a warm chocolate chip cookie.
Not just any chocolate chip cookie, but one of the most addictively delicious chocolate chip cookies ever!

Years ago, after a trip where we stayed at a DoubleTree and ended up buying a half dozen extra cookies,
 I searched online for their recipe and this is what I found.
It sat in my recipe file for all of these years and I never did make them.

This week is a family reunion for my siblings and our children and grandkids so
I decided to bake some chocolate chip cookies to bring along.
but in my opinion they are best served warm and fresh.
So I decided to finally try the DoubleTree Recipe.

They did not disappoint!
This is a large, hearty chocolate chip cookie, full of texture from the ground oats, 
and a generous amount of chocolate chips and walnuts.

The recipe says to chill the dough in the refrigerator overnight,
 but I just popped it into the freezer for a half hour or so to speed the process up.
I give this copycat recipe a two thumbs up!

Well, it's almost Friday, friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a BLESSED weekend!

  1. Pinning for sure! We take our chocolate chip cookies seriously around our house, so I will have to give this one a try. Thanks for sharing at Fridays Unfolded!


    1. Well, they were a big hit at our family reunion, so I guess they were a winner!

  2. Hey Elizabeth, your blog is absolutely beautiful! Just thought I'd pop over and say hi. Really appreciated your leaving some love over at my place - since I'd linked up at Kelli's so late in the game I figured no one might notice me. :) Anyway, those chocolate chip cookies look - oh my goodness - amazing. Yowza. Thanks again for stopping by my place. Blessings to you!

    1. Dana, I'm happy to have found your place via Kelli's as well!

  3. Hey friend. Thanks for the treat! This makes me feel like I'm sitting in your kitchen with you. And I do so want to be. You and me, sharing our hearts, swapping tips for photography, and munching on cookies. Just the thought makes me happy.

  4. Are there still Double Tree Hotels? I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that we husband makes the best cookies with it. When our boys were young, they loved having their dad make the cookies because they could eat as much batter as they wanted! ;-) I've been making half-recipes lately, and I'm getting pretty good with the recipe, too!

    1. I think that DoubleTree was bought by Hilton. You should blog your husband's cookie recipe!!!

  5. Delish! I made some chocolate chip cookies just yesterday. Had to be gluten-free but still so good! Love your pics, as always.

    Happy Friday!

    1. I made 10 dozen cookies and two cakes to take to my family reunion. All the cookies were gone by the time the reunion was only half over!

  6. Now I wish I had some of these. I would eat them for breakfast! Sounds so good. Will try them some time.
