Yield

Ingredients

1/2 cup rolled oats
2-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
2 eggs
3 cups semi-sweet, chocolate chips
1-1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

Grind oats in a food processor or blender until fine. Combine the ground oats with the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl.

Cream together the butter, sugars, vanilla, and lemon juice in another medium bowl with an electric mixer. Add the eggs and mix until smooth. Stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture and blend well. Add the chocolate chips and nuts to the dough and mix by hand until ingredients are well blended.

For the best results, chill the dough overnight in the refrigerator before baking the cookies.

Spoon rounded 1/4 cup portions onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Place the scoops about 2 inches apart. Bake in a 350°F oven for 16-18 minutes or until cookies are light brown and soft in the middle. Store in a sealed container when cool to keep soft.

I had these cookies for the first time the last week prepared by a former Double Tree chef. I begged him for the recipe and he wouldn't give it to me. I'm glad I found it here. These were the best chocolate cookies I have ever had.

My mother was an incredible cook and baker. I am one of those folks who knows good food and good recipes. This cookie recipe is incredible. It literally tastes just like those famous Doubletree cookies! I've had them after refrigerating the dough overnight, and immediately after preparing the dough. It's great both ways.

I found this same recipe on another site and went crazy making batch after batch for all my friends. My sister is a flight attendant and brings the original cookies to me all the time. On the package, it says they use Ghirardelli chocolate chips, and they make a big difference. I've found also, in my electric oven, I only need to bake them for 13 minutes, so be careful not to overbake.

These are the first cookies I've ever baked from scratch. I've always loved Doubletree cookies so when looking for a recipe what better cookies to make than my favorite?? My friends hardly believed these were my first cookies ever -- they came out absolutely PERFECT and definitely store them in a sealed container... I baked them on a Fri night and gave them out Saturday and they were toasted on the outside but soft and perfect still on the inside. Absolutely awesome!

These Cookies are awesome! I've given the recipe to several of my friends at work after they've tasted mine. I like to increase the vanilla to 2 tsp. of Mexican Vanilla, add a bit more cinnamon, and mix up the chocolate chips with milk chocolate and semi-sweet.

We stayed at a DoubleTree Hotel in Virginia a few months ago and they served these delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies. I kept the wrapper and was on a mission to find the cookies. I was so thrilled to see that foodgeeks had the recipe. I'm making a batch right now. My kids love them, and everyone that eats them swears they are the best cookies ever! Thank you!

We had the original cookies for the first time at a DoubleTree in Houston this weekend. As soon as we got home, I got online to order a tin but I came across this recipe instead. My wife picked up the missing ingredients and we made a batch... Couldn't wait to chill the dough overnight. They were awesome! REAL close to the cookies we had at the hotel! Can't wait to taste the chilled version! Thanks foodgeeks!

Doubletree Hotel has the best cookies I've ever had. So when I saw the recipe here, naturally I was ecstatic! Well, I did everything the recipe said, including chilling it overnight, and I think they're wonderful. They're about as close to the real thing as you can get. This will definitely be my new Choc. Chip Cookie recipe--- FOREVER! :-)

I followed this recipe EXACTLY (as any good cook should before attempting any tweaking)... and it's a good thing too, this recipe needs no tweaking! EVERYONE who has tried these cookies have said they are THE BEST. Thank-you! Thank-you! Thank-you! (and silly me, I -DID- send away for a tin of those $8.95 for 6 cookie DoubleTree cookies... They are 'O.K.', but this recipe, fresh from the oven, is so so so much better. :) Take my word for it, you MUST make these cookies!!!!

sonjabelanger

Hi,
I made this cookies the first time and they turned out super flat and crispy. The second time, after I made the cookie dough, I scooped out the dough and dropped them into a container. I then froze the dough in ball form. The next day, I cooked them at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. They were fluffy and soft. They tasted just like the doubletree! The first recipe I made, I used "light" butter. The second time, I used whole butter. I think that made a huge difference. The cookies are beautiful and I can't wait to give them away for Christmas!

lucyandzazu

These cookies came out AMAZING! Just like the Doubletree (Christie) cookies. I used real butter (not light) and Ghirardelli chocolate chips (like the Doubletree cookies have). I chilled the dough for about 6 hours, which was apparently long enough, and I baked them for about 13-14 minutes as they would have been too dark if I'd given them the full 16 minutes. Otherwise, I followed the recipe to the letter. I will be making these to give away as gifts!

I followed the exact recipe. BUT, when I went for my chocolate chips, I had NONE! I did have, however, peanut butter chips instead. The cookies were AWSOME! I can't wait to try these with actual Chocolate Chips!
TIP: A standard Ice Cream scoop with the little thumb lever = 1/4 cup...Perfect for dipping out cookies.

I made these cookies and they were really good. I brang some to work they were gone up in minutes.

Awesome! They came out thick and chunky just like the Double Tree cookies. I only had to bake for 13 minutes. This was the first time I had used lemon juice in a cookie recipe. After investigating a little on the web, I found out that the lemon juice reacts with the baking soda to result in a softer, chewier cookie. Definitely worked!

I worked for doubletree and I gained about 10 pounds eating these exact cookies. They are delicious - and I never got the recipe.

Thanks so much Jenny! A word of caution- use wisely…yeeaahh…
you use a pound of butter.

chrissidoll

I first tried these cookies after my mom had ordered a tin online. She had stayed in a hotel in Savannah and knew I'd love them just as much as she does. After we had finished the tin of cookies, I knew I wanted more. I'm so glad you posted this recipe. I've baked them twice and each time they've turned out PERFECT. I burned my very first sheet of these cookies, so try baking them for only 14 minutes...they turn out crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside that way :)

I LOVE these cookies. I only had regular chocolate chips can't wait to try the Ghiradelli chocolate chips. Thank you so much for sharing. No more insipid chocolate chip cookies for me!
I also baked them about 13 - 14 minutes and they were perfect.

So after reading all the glowing reviews and being a Doubletree cookie fan for years, I had to try this. I followed every step. I used the best, freshest ingredients (Ghiraradelli choc chips, fresh lemon juice, hi-quality flour, etc.). And well, the cookies are just OK. They taste OK, if you like a dense, cakey cookie. But everyone who says they taste just like the Doubletree cookie must be high on sugar. They just don't taste the same. Just to make sure I was not the one high on something, I went to Doubletree today and bought FOUR cookies, to compare. There is no comparison. These cookies do not have anywhere near the same crisp on the outside, moist on the inside texture. They also do not brown as well as the real hotel cookies. And they do not taste as buttery as the real cookie. VERY disappointing.

arizonacook

I love this cookie but I have made a couple of changes that were given to me by a local pastry chef. I add in an extra egg for a total of 3, use powered sugar instead of granular, take a Hersey chocolate candy bar 4oz. and grate it into the mix with nuts. Then I use a half regular chocolate chips and half semi sweet chips. These extras add to the smooth, moist and mouth watering taste. Enjoy!!

My cookies came out perfect! Just like Double Tree's. I did refrigerate overnight and used an ice cream scoop. It made the cookies large enough and perfectly round. My husband stays at the Double Tree often for business and I tricked him. When he tried these cookies - he thought they were the real thing. I highly recommend this recipe.

These cookies came out great, but I made some changes that made them DoubleTree authentic. I added 2 cups of additional rolled oats (do not grind). After scooping out dough on a cookie sheet using a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop, freeze for 30 minutes. Bake as directed. After 15 minutes, if cookies are still in high mounds, use a spatula to flatten slightly. Continue baking until edges are golden. This addition makes the texture and thickness of the cookie more original.

rinlg14

How could you get the recipe from the Doubletree Chef when the cookies are not even made there? They are in box that is in the freezer purchased from Christie Cookies. I find this interesting.

blazer

Followed the recipe and they came out great! Don't really care where the recipe came from, the cookies I baked came out just like the one's from Doubletree Christy Cookie Company

mlizotte

These cookies are great! BTW, the cookies have only been made by Christie's since 1995 - before that they WERE made on site at the Double Tree (beginning in the 1980s). It is very possible that Jenny got the recipe from her mom!

kskarad

These are wonderful! They are the only chocolate chip cookies I make now. I always have people asking for the recipe. Thank You!

srestelle

I thought this was a really great, substantial chocolate chip cookie. One recipe yields 17 if made with a regular size ice cream scoop, which makes perfectly even cookies. I left out the walnuts and they were fine. I also used a margarine/butter blend and got wonderful results.
Love it and will make it over and over again!

outlawjesco

I made these and took my first batch to work and they were a hit. Could not have asked for better results. I will be adding this to my cooking repertoire. I added additional chocolate chips and skipped the nuts making it a very chocolate chip cookie.

This recipe is the best cookie recipe...I have also tried it with different chip (like peanut butter)...I also used Splenda and Splenda brown sugar to cut down on the sugar and they taste just as good....

Great recipe...Thanks for posting it :)

lbgchris

I tried this recipe to the letter the first time I tried this recipe and was very disappointed with the results! I'm not sure how everyone else on here said it was so good. Biting into the cookie was like eating a mini-cake. It was not at all the correct texture and I found 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla was overdoing it and only added 1 tsp the next time around. I also added 2 1/2 cups (unground) of oatmeal, used powdered sugar instead of granular and also used 3 eggs instead of 2 (adding all that extra oatmeal!). Chilled overnight, the results were much better. I had to leave out the nuts unfortunately because I was out, but I substituted them with an extra cup of chocolate chips (2 cups semi sweet, 2 cups milk chocolate). Try this recipe, trust me!

I made these last night after finding the recipe. The Doubletree sales rep dropped off two tins of these cookies to our office the other day. They were the best. I found a tip about baking them at 300 degrees for 15 minutes. These were awesome. I actually had 1/4 cup of cinnamon chips left over from something else as well as 1 cup of white chips so I added these. My coworkers and son said they were the best. I also put the cookie batter in the freezer while baking to keep the butter in the batter cold so they don't spread a bunch. I will be making these often.

After reading all these great reviews, I cannot wait to try this cookie. I had them for the first time this weekend, immediately asked the front desk about them and bought a tin. I will make these for my son's 1st birthday and let you all know how it comes out, which will be 6/2/08!

serenity

These are hands-down the BEST chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted in my life! They are identical to the Doubletree hotel cookies, and the results are just incredible!

The only suggestion I have is to bake at a 300-degree oven for 15 minutes, then turn the oven up to 325-degrees and bake for another 5 minutes. The cookies come out just slightly flatter using this variation, but it's the only way I could prevent the bottoms from burning. Otherwise, it's an absolutely PERFECT recipe!

gracchus

Everything for this recipe is wonderful. I may increase the walnuts
by 1/4 c and decrease the chocolate chips by 1/4 c to be slightly
closer the the double tree cookies.

misspenny7

These were excellent cookies. My husband and I stayed at the Doubletree in Bloomington Ill. recently and loved the cookies! I was happy to see a recipe online that came close to the DT cookies. The recipe was easy and I followed the hint about baking at 300 deg. first then raising the temp. to 325deg for the last 5 min. Also, I don't have a traditional ice cream scoop so I took about 1/4 of dough for each cookie and gently rolled them into a ball and baked them that way. They came out perfectly round and not too thin. I am not sure if chilling the dough is necessary. Since the cookies probably come from Chrisities refrigerated, that may be how DT bakes them, right out of the fridge. Anyway, I chilled mine for 8 hrs first. My family raved about them! Thanks for the recipe!!

This recipe was so delicious! I did make some tweeks to make the cookies thicker and less cakey. I used 2 1/2 cups unground oats in place of the ground oats, used 3 eggs instead of 2, and increased the chocolate chips and walnuts by 1/2 cup each (my son really loves chocolate and walnuts). I then baked the cookies at 300 degrees for 14 mintues and then 325 for 5 minutes. This gave me a cookie that I feel was identical to the real Doubletree cookies...very thick, chewy, and incredible yummy!!

I really really love this. but the lady who submited this cant take credit for this recipe. She stole this recipe from www.topsecretrecipies.com by todd wilbur this is the identical recipe i mean steps and all. On his websight you do have to pay 79cents for each recipie but it is definitly worth it!! it also say that all of his recipeis are copyrighted and it is aginst the law to post his recipies online. So the women who said it is her moms recipie is a liar and she could go to jail if i was todd i would prosicute. I just wanted everyone to no that it is a great recipe. But she gave no credit to todd and even if she did it would still be aginst the law.

Jenny, you rock! I have been staying at Doubletree for years, and these are definitely a dead ringer. Didn't have any walnuts, so I used hazelnuts and macadamia nuts. The cookies STILL came out with that extremely similar, oh-so-familiar taste.

Increased the vanilla by 2-3 times (didn't measure). Also, my stove is gas, so I leave them on the middle rack until they sort of "start," and then move them to the top at 325.

This is normal of any cookie recipe, though, in my oven...decreased temp and moving up.

Another thing I always do is undercook for that soft texture even once cooled.

Will be making them again and again and again! Thank you so very much :) xo, Allison

Doubletree Cookies are prepared by the company that won the contract to produce them. They come to the hotels frozed and cooked according to the directions from then company. No property makes them from scratch. I worked for Doubletree for years and oversaw the food and beverage department. So this can not be from the hotel chef.

We have made these several times, all with great results. Don't use more than 1/4 cup for each...they are large cookies.
To make gluten free cookies which are also great and VERY similar to orig. recipe, substitute:
Quinoa flakes for oats
Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free flour for all purp. flour
add 2 rounded tsp xanthum gum
I also mix milk choc and semi-swt choc with great results.

This recipe is good, but its not a Doubletree Cookie Recipe. I have worked for the Doubletree Hotel for about a year now, and I became addicted to those things! (and gained weight, they have like 300 calories each) Anywho, I read a bunch of these comments and decided to try it out for myself. I had a taste test, side by side. A doubletree cookie against this one. And this recipe fails big time. Not because its a bad recipe, but becuase the doubletree cookie is just...cookie perfection. All these people who said they taste identical are just remembering a wonderful cookie, and then this recipe tastes wonderful too! They must be the same!!! But no, its not. Trust me, they don't taste anything alike. Try it for yourself. But make sure to get a fresh one from a hotel, not the ones you buy in tins online. As for the cookies themselves, they were fine. I've had better. (not including doubletree cookies)

Oh, and I gave it 3 stars, but my opinon is definately biased.

I tried this recipe last night and they were a hit! I refrigerated the mix over night and baked them the next day. I used an ice cream scooper for measuring but made them slightly smaller. It made over 4 dozen cookies and I was able to give some to my family, co-workers, and friends to take home. I only baked them for 13-14 minutes and they came out great. This was my first attempt at a recipe from scratch and it was a success. Thank you for the recipe!!! >_

We stay at the Doubletree whenever there is one available in the city where we are staying and are always so excited when we recieve the cookies at check-in. We try to save the cookies but they are gone as soon as we get in our room. We "snuck" a taste of the batter when I was making the cookies for the first time and could tell they were going to taste just like the hotel's recipe. Sure enough they do! ove the recipe, Thanks

busybostonmom

This recipe is fabulous. My family sometimes chooses the DoubleTree hotel just because of the cookies. Now I can just make these cookies and bring them to whichever hotel has the best rates. :-) I made these for the first time the other day, for a family gathering. I had many rave reviews, and more than one person recognized them as being DoubleTree cookies without me saying so. I baked them in an electric oven for 12 minutes, and I think they were in for about 1 minute too long, so certainly be sure to check on them sooner than the 16-18 minutes that is listed in the instructions.

I love these cookies. I had a similar recipe that I couldn't find and this one has all of the same ingredients! Key ingredients are lemon and rolled oats... I made two batches of cookies and my family and friends raved about how good they were. In the future the only thing I'm going to modify is the salt. The salt over powered the sugar. People still loved the cookies, however next time I prepare this recipe, I'll use 1/2 a tsp of salt instead of a full tsp of salt. Thank you for sharing!!!!!!

amydgarrett

This recipe is always a hit, although I agree that while they are delicious, they don't taste exactly like the ones you get at the Doubletree hotels. I would say that refrigerating overnight is essential for the texture of these cookies, and cooking time is a matter of preference--less cooking time for a softer cookie, or, as I prefer them, longer for a nice brown, crunchy cookie. Also, I have a few variations: I double always double this recipe and only put in 1 cup each of brown and white sugar instead of 1 1/2 of each. Also, using Ghiradelli chocolate chips is essential. They are more expensive, but worth it. Also, I use two bags of milk chocolate and one bag of 60% cocoa (bittersweet) chocolate. Finally, I really dump in the cinnamon (also a matter of preference), probably using a couple tablespoons (for a double batch).

Perfect! I've tried the recipe before and thought it was close but not perfect. Then, recently, I went to the Double Tree site to order cookies which led me to The Christie Baking Co. I ordered a tub of dough and a baked batch of cookies. Ingredients on the packaging are spot on to this recipe posted here! I was able to make them from scratch with this recipe. Difference this time around was the processing of the oatmeal (over processed last time), the chopped walnuts (actually processed them this time) and chilled before baking (makes a huge difference). Plus, taking them out of the oven right before I think they're done because the slightest over baking causes them to be crunchy all the way through. So happy to have this recipe perfected! The perfect cookie! Thanks!
