Cookie 27 of 52

I don’t even know where to begin with how pleased I am with these cookies.  Oh. My. Goodness.  These are amazing.

Have you ever stayed at a Double Tree hotel?  My family and I stayed on one awhile back, and I fell in love with the warm (yes, warm!) cookie the give you upon check in.  It became a habit to request a cookie each time I passed the front desk, and now it’s habit to stay at a Double Tree when ever I can, so I can enjoy their cookie once again.

Enter present day, when a request was made to me to bake for an event.  I wanted to find a tasty fun cookie, and I remembered these Gems.  I went hunting and found a post that said, “My mom worked at this hotel for years and we always had them around the house. This is the actual recipe from a Double Tree chef!”  I was sold, and these went on the list as cookie #27.

Twenty Seven isn’t only my lucky number – it’s also the halfway through my perfect chocolate chip cookie search.    So, I couldn’t be happier that #27 is a winner batch.

I made these cookies in stages – prepped the dry ingredients on Monday, which included finding out that you can grind oats in a blender.  Wow!  The cinnamon was also a nice touch.

On Tuesday, I mixed the dry and wet ingredients together.  Lemon juice! This is going to be fun.   A little bit of cookie dough fell off the spoon and I had a (few) sample bites.  Oh. My.  I was so excited, I could barely wait the 24 hours to chill the dough before baking.

Friday night, they baked up and I tried one ~ man, these do not disappoint! I am not a typical walnut fan, but I am not mad at this cookie for including them.  These. are. amazing.  My only wish is that they were bigger ~ which I will certainly remedy next time.

You can find the recipe here — let me know if you love them as much as I did.
