DoubleTree Signature Cookie Recipe

Makes 26 cookies

½ pound butter, softened (2 sticks)

¾ cup + 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

¾ cup packed light brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 ¼ cups flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

Pinch cinnamon

2 2/3 cups Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 3/4 cups chopped walnuts

Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes.

Add eggs, vanilla and lemon juice, blending with mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, then medium speed for about 2 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 2 inches apart.

Preheat oven to 300°F. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.

Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet for about 1 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 2 inches apart. Bake until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.

Walt Disney Chili: 

The recipe reads as follows:

  • 2 pounds of ground beef
  • 2 sliced onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 12 cup of oil
  • 1 cup of chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon of chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon of paprika
  • 1 tablespoon of dry mustard
  • 1 large can of solid pack tomatoes
  • 2 pounds of dry pink beans
  • Salt

How to make it:

  • This is key. You’ll want to soak the beans together overnight. Then, drain them out, add water. Simmer the onions. Prepare the sauce, add in ingredients and let it simmer for an hour. Add sauce and beans in for 30 minutes.

The Dole Whip pineapple treat: 

The recipe (for a single serving) reads at the following:

  • 1 big scoop of ice cream
  • 4 oz of pineapple juice
  • 2 cups of frozen pineapple
  • Add all ingredients to a blender until it’s a thick drink.
  • Add your swirl and then you’re done.

Just a note: The original Dole Whip is dairy-free, so you’ll want to use dairy-free ice cream if you want to make the real option. You can check out Dole’s official recipe or see Dole’s official soft serve mix for more information.
