I tried making Hilton Doubletree’s famous cookies – using inspiration from this recipe.
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup unsalted butter (two sticks)
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 large eggs
- 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
Pulse oats in a food processor and set aside. Mix butter, both sugars, vanilla extract, and lemon juice into a mixing bowl and cream together. Add eggs one at a time. In another bowl, add the oats, flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, and sift together. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and mix. Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 10-12 minutes.
This recipe makes a lot of dough so I baked the cookies multiple times. I found that I liked to underbake them (closer to 10 minutes). I also liked them better when I chilled the dough overnight.
Also – I randomly decided to cover four Oreos with leftover dough and bake them. Sinfully delicious.
