DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies

Start your ovens, ladies!
Boy have I got a recipe for you! So, I'm not sure how many of you have actually been a guest at the DoubleTree hotel, but perhaps you've heard of their legendary cookies?

Well, we have a partnership with the DoubleTree here in Kansas City, and when we had a meeting with them in the office, they brought us a ton of yummy chocolate chip cookies!

Naturally, I had to try one... duh. As soon as that delectible cookie hit my taste buds, I knew I had to find the recipe STAT. After doing some research, this is the recipe that I've found on several sites. Apparently it use to be on the Top Secret Recipes web site, which is now charging a small fee for it.

So, here ya go! I can't wait to test it out too, and be another one of the thousand people who say it's spot on the money!

Ingredients

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
2 eggs
3 cups semi-sweet, chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts


Instructions

1) Grind oats in a food processor or blender until fine.

2) Combine the ground oats with the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl.

3) Cream together the butter, sugars, vanilla, and lemon juice in another medium bowl with an electric mixer. Add the eggs and mix until smooth.

4) 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. **

5) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spoon rounded 1/4 cup portions onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Place the scoops about 2 inches apart. Bake for 16 minutes or until cookies are light brown and soft in the middle.

** They may look underdone, but this is normal and the secret to perfectly soft bakery-style cookies. They will continue baking on the sheet after you take them out of the oven. **

6) Remove from the baking sheet after they cool for 4-5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

  4. I don't know if I'd have the willpower to leave the dough in the fridge overnight. I would eat every bite of it -- raw eggs and all!
