DoubleTree Hotel Chocolate Chip Cookies

The beloved DoubleTree Hotel Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe is available and posted right here for everyone to bake a batch right at home. I hope you all enjoy this delectable and easy recipe. It’s become a family favorite here. That’s how good these cookies are! 

 

In April 2020 the secret was out! DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel had finally revealed the recipe for their most delicious chocolate chip cookies.

For many years, so many of us foodies had tried to copy this iconic cookie recipe. And until April 2020 we could only guesstimate what was really in these yummy cookies.

If you are unfamiliar with the welcoming treat every guest receives when checking into a DoubleTree, I will tell you. It’s been a tradition of theirs for many years. In fact, more than 30 million cookies are consumed each year. Now that’s a whole lot of cookies.

In 1986 DoubleTree Hotel by Hilton started offering these signature cookies as a nightly turn-down service. Nine years later, in 1995 the warm DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie was transferred to all hotel front desks. The was to offer a “warm” welcome to guests as they checked in.

After each batch of the cookies are baked they stay warm behind the front desk in a warmer that keeps the cookies soft and chewy for the perfect bite and ready to give out to each guest checking in. 

My family and I stayed at the DoubleTree Hotel many times a few years ago when my daughter Tori was away at college in Buffalo.

We took her up to school the first day and went to visit a bunch of times during her four years at college.

The first time we arrived at the hotel, while checking in, they hand each of your party a warm, delicious chocolate chip cookie that’s in a brown paper pouch. Each one is individual and each day we stayed there we were eligible to get another cookie. When we checked out it was the same deal. “Take a cookie with you” they would say as we were leaving.

 

Now, on to the cookie itself. This is not an ordinary chocolate chip cookie. Not that there is anything wrong with an ordinary one. I love all chocolate chip cookies! Hey, it’s America’s favorite and most searched for recipe. But, these Copycat DoubleTree Hotel Chocolate Chip Cookies have an amazing texture in each bite.

Being a food blogger, I wanted so badly to figure out the recipe but to no avail. Then,

in April 2020, with everything going on in the world at the time, the company made an announcement that they were finally ready to release the recipe that we can make ourselves at home.

They felt since they couldn’t accommodate their guests at this time, they wanted to do create something for families to do together at home and a warm chocolate chip cookie can bring a moment of happiness.

It sure did in my house. My kids and husband finished these babies in one day. Since then, my son bakes batches of these cookies to give out when friends come over and I also give these as edible gifts at holiday time. They happen to pack up well. 

Give this wonderful cookie recipe a try, because if you are like me, you’ll love them and be hooked! Enjoy!!

  3. Add eggs one at a time. Then add in vanilla and lemon juice. Continue to mix on low to medium speed until fluffy. This should take another 1 ½ to 2 minutes.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients with a whisk. Slowly add into the batter and mix on a low speed. Mix until all is incorporated. You many need to stop and scrape down sides with a rubber spatula.
  5. Mix again just for a few seconds. Take the spatula and dig down to incorporate any dry ingredients into wet. Try not to over mix.
  6. stir in chips and nuts by had with a sturdy rubber spatula.

  8. Place 2 inches apart on each cookie sheet. Place in oven and after 5 minutes, swap the sheets for even baking. Bake for about 11 to 14 minutes or until edges of cookies are lightly golden brown and tops are slightly golden. The middle should still be soft. Try not to over bake.
  9. When finished, place cookie sheets on wire racks for about 20 minutes. Then, slide cookies onto the racks. You can eat while still warm or let cool completely. Enjoy the deliciousness!
