Doubletree Cookies

IMG_0758

In my job as a Hotel Sales & Catering Manager, I’ve developed  quite the love hate relationship with a very famous hotel cookie. Although I love the delicious chocolate chip cookies that have become Doubletree Hotels’ signature, I hate the fact that some of the groups that are deciding between my hotel and the Doubletree will make their hotel choice purely based on that warm chocolate chip cookie presented at check in. And after tasting one of their signature cookies, I can definitely see why they are such a draw. The perfect sprinkling of chocolate chips and a warm carmel like flavor from the toasted oats, make these cookies a step above your typical chocolate chip cookie. So, like most other recipes I love, I decided to try and recreate the cookie at home. But I needed a little help, so I went searching on the blogosphere and stumbled upon FoodGeeks.com, a website devoted to copycat recipes. And although I don’t think this recipe is exactly the same as the famous Doubletree cookies, they are pretty darn close. So give this recipe a try… just don’t tell my boss who gave it to you.
