If you don't know....now you know! The DoubleTree Hotel released their famous chocolate chip cookie recipe back in April during the quarantine. If you have ever stayed at a DoubleTree hotel, then you know that they give you a cookie after you check-in. The cookie is typically still warm and I normally devour mine before I even make it to my room. The recipe for these cookies are very easy to follow but you MUST make them according to the times indicated in the recipe. If you bake cookies as much as I do, I highly recommend using baking mats instead of parchment paper. I have found that they help bake the cookies more evenly and the clean up only involves wiping them down. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
