Chocolate chips cookies from Double tree hotel [moved from What's My Craving board]
They were the most incredible tasting chocolate chip cookies i've ever had.
Does anybody know where I can get these delicious cookies without spending a night at Double tree hotel where they give out cookies?
I LOVE those cookies! A student's mother gave all us teachers tins of those cookies at the end of the school year. She worked at Double Tree. I wish I knew a quick way to get them. Sorry if this seems like a plainly obvious tip, but I'm sure the hotel staff at the front desk at your local Double Tree would be willing to sell you a few tins of them. Maybe you'll get lucky and meet a super-nice staff member who'll give you some complimentary cookies!
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup oats (uncooked)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup Dark Brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. lemon juice
12 oz. chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup walnuts
375 degree oven. Lightly grease cookie sheets.
Place the butter in a large bowl and cream lightly with an
electric mixer. Add the sugars and beat on medium speed for
about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well
after each addition. Add the vanilla and lemon juice and mix
well. Stir together the flour, oatmeal, baking soda, and salt. Add to the creamed butter mixture. Add chocolate chips and walnut. Bake for 13 − 15 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges. Remove from the cookie sheets and
cool on wire racks.(a 2 oz ice cream scoop is recommended for scooping onto the sheets.)
This site has a slightly different recipe,
1/2 cup rolled oats
2-1/4 cups 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
3 cups semi-sweet, chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts
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 just bought some last week from the lobby bar at the Doubletree in Niagara Falls, Canada for 99 cents each. They are amazing warmed in the microwave, but not if eaten later the same day at room temp. I'll have to check if they are sold singly at the Toronto airport location next time I'm at Grand chinese restaurant or a conference there.
re: Food Tourist
Today I was at a conference at Doubletree by Hilton at Toronto Airport and they were putting "fakes" in their regular cookie bag...i.e. the cookies inside did not match the ingredients printed on the bag (e.g. walnuts and taste were missing). I picked up two bags at registration 30 minutes apart...one bag contained a traditional oatmeal raisin cookie, and the other a plain chocolate chip cookie. Outrageous!!!!
