Doubletree Chocolate Chip Cookies

(There's one cookie missing because I eated it as soon as I took it out of the oven!)

Raincheck on the ice cream! Its cooling in the fridge over night, so will be here tomorrow! yay. lol. Okay, back to the subject! Cookies! Have you ever had cookies from the Doubletree Hotel? They are totally awesomee. I've gotten a whole can to myself (containing about 7 cookies) because my friend's dad works there! So, while I was browsing Baking Bites, these caught my eye and made me wanna make em! Wow, these are so delicious! They taste like the real thing! Except mine were thinner because I pressed em with a spoon before baking (I did this because I was afraid they wouldn't melt properly). Anyways, here's the recipe!
1/2 cup rolled oats (oatmeal)
2-1/4 cups all purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 large eggs
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips wow.. after i added, i figured out it was too much..
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts (optional) i included! they wouldn't be doubletree without em!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grind oats in a food processor until very fine and almost powdery. Put tthe oats with the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl and stir to combine.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the vanilla and vinegar, then add the eggs in one at a time. Gradually, on low speed, add in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts by hand.Divide dough into 2 tbsp balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet (dough can also be chilled for a slightly less-spread out cookie), leaving about 2 inches between each ball so the cookies can spread.Bake for 13-15 minutes, until golden at the edges. Cool for about 4 minutes on the baking sheet, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.Store in an airtight container.

Out of a 1-5 rating
cookies: 4 1/2

PS. This the the blueberry ice cream liquid thing waiting in the fridge!

Your chocolate chip cookies look delicious! And I'm curious to see how the blueberry ice cream works out.

These cookies look great. We used to have a Doubletree nearby that all our out-of-town guests would stay at, I remember how good those cookies were!

OMG I had Doubletree cookies a few years ago when I went with my cousin to a Johnson & Wales orientation in Charlotte, NC. THEY WERE SO FREAKIN GOOD!!!
