As far as I remember they do taste like very similar, if not even the same as the DoubleTree Cookies!
So last night I came home late from work really tired and as I was washing my face getting ready to lay in bed and watch tv, Mr. Picky walks in the bathroom and this is the convo we had:
Him: ”I’m soo hungry, but I don’t feel like making anything.”
His expectations: “Ok honey, I will go make you something!”
Reality:”There’s leftovers in the fridge, you know where the microwave is!”
His response: “I’ll just get cereal”
His expectations: “Don’t be silly, I’ll get you the leftovers!”
Reality: “Fine, eat cereal!” Hahaha he really expected me to get him some food! Yeah right, do I look like room service or something!LOL
But seriously if you like the DoubleTree cookies you have to make these! And if you’ve never had their cookies, but you like a heavenly oatmeal cookie with crunchy walnuts and gooye chocolate chips – you have to make them! They are soo good!
Here’s how to make them:
Everything you need +vanilla extract and lemon juice! Oops.
In a food processor, pulse the oats until very fine. (I pulsed them a little more after the photo)
Add in all the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Set aside.
In the bowl of electric mixer, cream the butter, sugars, vanilla and lemon until light and fluffy. about 3mins.
Add the egg and beat to combine.
In two batches add the dry ingredients and beat just to combine after each addition.
Fold in a ton of chocolate chips
And some walnuts!
Stir to combine. And you are done! Just scoop the dough on a cookie sheet and bake for 12-14mins or until the edges are golden brown and your whole kitchen smells like cinnamon! YUM
And now you should wait for them to cool, but I’m inpatient and they looked so good so I ate 2 while still hot! Burning my tongue along the way…but it’s totally worth it!
