DoubleTree Signature Cookie Recipe
Makes 26 cookies
  • 1 cup (227 grams) butter, softened
  • ¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon (162 grams) granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup (165 grams) packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs (100 grams)
  • 1¼ teaspoons (5 grams) vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.25 grams) freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2¼ cups (281 grams) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (47 grams) rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon (5 grams) baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon (6 grams) salt
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • 2⅔ cups (453 grams) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1¾ cups (198 grams) chopped walnuts
  1. Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes.
  2. Add eggs, vanilla and lemon juice, blending with mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, then medium speed for about 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy, scraping down bowl.
  3. With mixer on low speed, add flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, blending for about 45 seconds. Don’t overmix.
  4. Remove bowl from mixer and stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
  5. Portion dough with a scoop (about 3 tablespoons) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about 2 inches apart.
  6. Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C). Bake for 20 to 23 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.
  7. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet for about 1 hour.
Cook’s note: You can freeze the unbaked cookies, and there’s no need to thaw. Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C) and place frozen cookies on parchment paper-lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.
