Cookies Galore!

Every year or so, David and I make the famous Doubletree Hotel Cookies. Here it the recipe we use. I love making it, but I am not sure where I got the receipe from any more. But man, they are great! I am going to a cookie exchange with our church group, where you go with 4 dozen cookies, trade with others and get back 4 dozen cookies. Now if only I can hide them from David long enough to bring them to work on Monday!
Doubletree Cookies

  • 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

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-degree oven for 16 to 18 minutes or until cookies are light brown and soft in the middle. Store in a sealed container when cool to keep soft. Makes 20 cookies.
