DOUBLETREE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES! SHARE THE LOVE!



It's summertime. It's Saturday!
Time to share some sweetness with the ones you love!
I did just that by baking up a batch of these divine chocolate chip cookies!
Last night we met family for dinner and enjoyed seeing the Dallas skyline at night!
 
 

 I surprised each of the boys(and Jenn)
by presenting them with a bag of these homemade cookies.
I love trying out new recipes, and
had never prepared this version of the chocolate chipper!






Yes....it's a good recipe!
What makes a tad difference, I think, is that tiny touch of lemon juice! Who knew?
If you have ever stayed at a Doubletree,
the aroma of cookies baking will make you feel right at home!
 Enjoy the weekend y'all!





DOUBLETREE HOTEL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1 1/2 cups unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
4 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts

 
 
Cream butter in large bowl. Add both sugars and beat on medium for 2 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add lemon juice and vanilla; mix well.
 
In a separate bowl, stir together dry ingredients. Add to creamed mixture and stir well to blend. Add chips and nuts; stir to combine.
 
Drop by 1/4 cup or 2 ounce scoop on parchment-lined baking pans, 2 to 3 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges. Cool; remove from paper and cool completely on wire racks.
