DoubleTree Chocolate Chip CookiesPosted: June 30, 2010 | |
H loves the DoubleTree Cookies…LOVES THEM. So when I was online I stumbled across the recipe for the cookies and decided to surprise him with a batch. They come out perfect…very very very close to the real deal! H loved them and with chilling the dough before baking (which you must do, the dough is TOO SOFT to bake right from mixing), I can keep a batch in the fridge and only bake as I need so H always has fresh baked cookies whenever he wants. They always taste sooo much better fresh baked..with ice cream as H likes to have them!! LOL
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.
