Karen Gentry has our first recipe for our Christmas Cookie Recipe Exchange and if it’s coming from Karen you just know it’s got to be good!! 🙂
Here’s Karen to tell us all about them:
This is the chocolate chip cookie I come back to again and again. It simply puts all others to shame. This classic is a treat no matter what the age or occasion. I love watching peoples face the first time they bite into this cookie. Not only is it delicious, you know there’s something in there that’s different…the secret…a touch of cinnamon. Also, makes the perfect cookie for Santa!
Doubletree Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup rolled oats
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
3 cups semi-sweet, chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts
Grind oats in a food processor or blender until fine. Combine the ground oats with the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
Cream together the butter, sugars, vanilla, and lemon juice in another medium bowl with an electric mixer. Add the eggs and mix until smooth. Stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture and blend well. Add the chocolate chips and nuts to the dough and mix by hand until ingredients are well blended.
For the best results, chill the dough overnight in the refrigerator before baking the cookies.
Spoon rounded 1/4 cup portions onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Place the scoops about 2 inches apart. Bake in a 350°F oven for 12-15 minutes or until cookies are light brown and soft in the middle. Store in a sealed container when cool to keep soft.
