If you love DoubleTree’s warm chocolate chip cookies, you can easily bake them at home!

Love gooey chocolate chip cookies? Let’s bake these for dessert!

If you’ve ever visited a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, then you may be familiar with the delicious homemade warm chocolate chip cookies they give you upon checking in. According to Hilton.com, more than 30 million of these DoubleTree cookies are baked each year worldwide for their guests. 😱

Luckily the Hilton brand released their make-at-home recipe for their Signature DoubleTree Chocolate Chip Cookies last year for all of us to enjoy at home. No travel required!

As soon as I saw this news, I knew I NEEDED to bake these cookies!

Last year, we were on a baking kick for sure (*ahem* quarantine-baking) whipping up everything from Nutella Banana Bread to Chicken Pot Pies – and of course, cookies! Chocolate chip cookies are my kid’s favorites so it was an exciting revelation to get to make the DoubleTree ones when they released the recipe.

Of course, no shocker here- the result – DELICIOUS!

To no one’s surprise, this produced a beautiful batch of AMAZING chocolate chip cookies! If you love a homemade cookie with a soft yet chewy texture, this is a great recipe. I love all the chunks of Nestle chocolate chips and chopped walnuts, too.

I have never thought of adding old-fashioned oats to my chocolate chip cookies, but I loved the bulk and texture it added! This recipe also has a splash of lemon juice and cinnamon which is also unexpected and delish.

Hip recipe tips for making Double Tree chocolate chip cookies: 

  • I used an ice cream scoop as suggested, but it made giant cookies and they spread a lot. Some of my cookies spread into each other, so next time I’ll leave more room in between. I may even invest in a handy cookie scoop set and make smaller cookies!
  • Make sure to allow the DoubleTree cookies to cool for an hour as the recipe states. I tried to move mine too soon and had a casualty. I admit, it’s hard to wait. 😂

One-bowl baking recipes just rock!

As far as the process goes, this is a simple recipe that’s fun to make with the kids as a family activity. I love that there is just one bowl to clean afterward. Many recipes separate the dry and wet ingredients, but in this one, you can throw everything in a stand mixer or use a large mixing bowl and hand mixer as I did!

Yum, these are just plain AMAZING!

If you’re a chocolate chip cookie fan, I definitely recommend trying the Signature DoubleTree cookies as they were winners for us. I definitely scored some fun mom points for making them. I also even enjoyed one for breakfast the next day with coffee because everyone knows cookies for breakfast once in a while are A-okay 😉 LOL!

    Can confirm these are good! I only added half the amount of chocolate chips and walnuts and they were still good.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Perfect- glad it worked out! Thanks for sharing Ashley!

  2. Savvy Mom

    My family and I made these when I saw the recipe on my Apple news feed about a week ago. These are delicious and very tasty. These do freeze well, then easy to scoop some out to make a few at a time. I always love fresh from the oven cookies.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I love that idea for freezing! Thanks for sharing 😀

    We made these last night and they are yummy! We used cookie scoops so ours is much smaller. The recipe says it makes 26 cookies… we ended up with a little more than 4 dozen!! I think I’ll try them with less sugar next time though because they were a bit sweet for me. Definitely goes great with a big glass of milk!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Sue S

    This is going in my stash of recipes, for sure. I’m going to have to resist the warm chocolate chip cookie straight out of the oven though:)

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      YESSS!! They are so great! Thanks Sue!

  5. sne3103

    I made these the other day, and my husband guessed on the first bite that were a copycat of the Doubletree cookies. They were amazing, and it was my first time getting perfectly chewy cookies, without using pudding mix or other weird ingredients. Store in an airtight container with a slice of bread, to keep them chewy. This’ll be my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks for those great tips!! I know these are so chewy and YUM.

  6. bhokanson05

    Made them the other day! So good!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Becks

    I just told my kids I wanted to bake cookies! Then I saw this! can’t wait to try them!

  8. everest716

    Cookies for breakfast are okay during quarantine!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Exactly! I’ll approve it 🤣👍

  9. Amanda Durham

    We tried these! Everyone seemed to enjoy them but I still prefer the standard toll house recipe. I wasn’t a fan of the cinnamon in it & these were super thick.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh interesting – well thanks for sharing your thoughts on them Amanda!

  10. shop4mybabies

    you know what would make these taste 100x better? If Lina baked them and mailed them to me!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Haha 😆 I agree everything tastes better from made someone else! Thanks 😊

  11. Lucero

    Do you think I could sub the walnuts for almonds? Trying to use what I already have.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes, I think that sounds yummy!

  12. Pliu0211

    I made these 3 days ago. First off, I have never baked cookies from scratch. I’m a newbie to cooking/baking. I read so many great reviews and decided to try it out. The cookies came out delicious. My 3 kids absolutely love them. I scooped them out and freeze them. I have to say, I think the frozen ones taste better. I bake 6 cookies a day. Love it!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow I love that idea! Ours are already gone so that’s a great tip. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  13. Kismetkitty

    I made them too. Hubby loves all chocolate chip cookies and declared them delicious. I thought they were almost too chocolaty. I’ll cut down on the amount of chocolate chips if I make them again. I prefer the crisp chocolate chip cookies I usually make.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing! It’s true how everyone likes their cookies a certain way or texture! 👍

    • Kathy Saalfeld

      I agree. I always use half the amount of chips in recipe and cut the sugar by 1/3. Everyone still loves them and at least they’re a little better for you!😉. This is very similar to Monster Cookies.

  14. Mel

    Theres a video of a guy making these cookies (on Hilton newsroom /Vimeo) and he packs the dough in the scoop and presses the dough down to make it a thick circle, so that might keep the cookies from spreading. Gonna try this recipe tomorrow!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh nice – thanks for that. Enjoy!

  15. amanda

    We made these last week and they are the best! I decreased the amount of chocolate chips a bit and added a few chunky sea salt flakes to the top. Definitely a new favorite! I plan on trying to make smaller cookies next time. SOOO good!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks Amanda for sharing!

  16. Jamie

    I’m 37 weeks pregnant and feel like I could eat ALL the cookie dough in that bowl in the picture. LOL looks so yummy! Might have to make some.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh ha! It’s hard not to eat the dough. Enjoy and congrats on the new baby ❤️ How exciting!

    • ElleS

      Jamie, you should check out http://www.cookingclassy.com. She has 3 different recipes for edible cookie dough … and they’re safe to eat because they do not contain egg!

      • Dawn

        Thanks for the link, I enjoy the dough more than the cookies.

  17. wcracing

    Lina I love that picture, your hair is so cute! And thanks for sharing the recipe! 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks so much! Enjoy 😉

  18. Bunny

    Made these and they are fabulous! They also freeze beautifully if you want to keep them fresh and not eat the whole batch at once! We are all about portion control these days 😉

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh that’s a great tip! Thanks!

  19. Allison Lambert

    I started making these a few month ago and the family loves them! I also did a modified version where I replaced the chocolate chips and walnuts with dried cranberries, white chocolate chips and pecans….both ways are awesome!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow yum! Thanks for sharing!

  20. Gentle

    I’m curious about the lemon juice in them. Do they have a strong lemon flavor? I’m not a fan of lemon flavored things. Wondering if I could just leave that out.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      No they don’t – I think you can leave out!

      • Gentle

        Awesome! Thanks, Lina!

    • Jen S

      The reason for the lemon juice is to activate the baking soda, which makes a softer cookie. I don’t think it gives a lemon flavor.

  21. Trin

    I’ve worked for DT for 15 years. We do not make ours this way. We don’t add the lemon juice or the cinnamon. Also, our recipe only calls for 2 cups of chocolate chips and we add 2 cups (not 1 3/4) of the nuts I’ll try to get a picture of the recipe poster when I go to work on Monday!

    • lin

      That would be great! I enjoy trying out different recipes and comparing them.

    • Anette

      I knew the recipe wasn’t right! They are good but don’t taste like what I remember getting at the hotel.

    • Sar

      That’s interesting! I’m surprised you guys actually mix up the ingredients on site!

    • Lisha

      Thanks so much, I wanna give it a go.

  22. Lolly

    Is there a printable version of the recipe somewhere? I only see it in the middle of the article with no print option. If I have to copy it ontoa recipe card I’ll never be able to read my own writing!!

    • amber-6

      You could screen shot it and then print it out as an image.

  23. Julia

    Going to give these a whirl this weekend. Is the butter salted or unsalted? Thanks!

  24. Michelle B.

    I’ve been making this recipe for a few years and it is by far our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe!!! Yummy!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks for sharing!

  25. LaToya

    THANKS FOR THIS!!
    I just emailed my husband and told him this is THE ONLY THING I want now for Valentine’s Day. We used to have a local DoubleTree, but they went away. I freakin’ LOVE these cookies!! gahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! Enjoy!

  26. Lisa

    This has been my new favorite cookie recipe since H2S posted it. While the original recipe is great, I’ve found that this works better (for me)…. I use 1 stick of salted butter and 1/2 c. butter flavor Crisco. I also only use C&H Brown Sugar, Gold Medal Flour, and Hershey’s Milk Chocolate chip (doesn’t matter on brand name for the other ingredients)…. The consistency of the cookies and taste is better (for me). Believe me, I’ve tried using other brands and I can tell the difference. With 1-3/4 c of walnuts, I tell my husband (and justify in my own mind) that they are good for me! 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks so much Lisa!

  27. Kim Cash

    I love these cookies! One of the best things is you can make the dough and freeze the individual dough balls. Then just take out a few and bake. Keeps me from wanting to eat all the cookies!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I love that idea! Yes they are too easy to eat a bunch at once 🤣🙌 Thanks Kim!
