Small Batch DoubleTree Cookie Recipe - For the first time, DoubleTree Hotel has released their original chocolate chip cookie recipe and we've scaled down the ingredients to bring you a small batch version of these famous cookies!
Recently, Doubletree by Hilton released its famous chocolate chip cookie recipe. If you've ever stayed at a DoubleTree Hotel, you're probably familiar with the freshly baked, warm and wonderfully gooey cookies that guests are greeted with when checking in.
DoubleTree cookies were a highlight of my kids' road trip memories. Even still, when my husband and I travel, we look forward to snagging a cookie in the lobby before going upstairs to our room.
Since the top-secret recipe is now available to the public, I couldn't resist scaling down the ingredients to create a small batch DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. This recipe will yield between 6 and 8 cookies, depending on how large you make them. The cookies are easy to make and you don't even need to chill the dough!
More than 30 million DoubleTree cookies are consumed every year and the DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie was the first food to be baked in orbit during experiments aboard the International Space Station.
Although DoubleTree copycat cookie recipes have been created and shared online for years, this is the first time Hilton has released their official version so at-home bakers can create the warm and comforting treats at home.

The original Doubletree cookie recipe calls for using rolled oats but since being in quarantine, I haven't been able to find rolled oats in my grocery stores. Instead, I used quick oats and they worked beautifully.
Also worth noting, the original cookie recipe calls for using chopped walnuts. I used pecans instead, because again that's what I had on hand and they were spectacular - I totally recommend using them.
The original DoubleTree recipe calls for using a scant 1/8 of a teaspoon of lemon juice and I would absolutely suggest doing so. You might not think that using such a small amount would make much of a difference but it really does. I made the cookies with and without lemon juice and the texture of the cookies made with the juice was better. Having said this, if you don't have lemons or juice, make the cookies anyway. They're still incredibly delicious.
