With hotels across the UAE and the world pausing operations and their dining services, DoubleTree by Hilton has opted to bring one of its most famous recipes to light. DoubleTree hotel chocolate chip cookies were in fact the first food to be baked aboard the International Space Station, now being brought to peoples’ homes.

DoubleTree by Hilton SVP president and global head Shawn McAteer explained: “A warm chocolate chip cookie can’t solve everything, but it can bring a moment of comfort and happiness. We hope families enjoy the fun of baking together during their time at home, and we look forward to welcoming all our guests with a warm DoubleTree cookie when travel resumes.”

The recipe is below:

Ingredients

• ½ pound butter, softened (two sticks)
• ¾ cup + one tablespoon granulated sugar
• ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
• Two large eggs
• One ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract
• ¼ teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
• Two ¼ cups flour
• 1/2 cup rolled oats
• One teaspoon baking soda
• One teaspoon salt
• Pinch cinnamon
• Two 2/3 cups Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet chips chocolate chips
• One 3/4 cups chopped walnuts

Method
Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed for about two minutes.

Add eggs, vanilla and lemon juice, blending with mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, then medium speed for about two minutes, or until light and fluffy, scraping down bowl.

With mixer on low speed, add flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, blending for about 45 seconds. Don’t overmix.

Remove bowl from mixer and stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.

Portion dough with a scoop (about 3 tablespoons) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about two inches apart.

Preheat oven to 300°F. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and centre is still soft.
Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet for about one hour.

Cook’s note: You can freeze the unbaked cookies, and there’s no need to thaw. Preheat oven to 300°F and place frozen cookies on parchment paper-lined baking sheet about two inches apart. Bake until edges are golden brown and centre is still soft.
