For as long as I can remember, the beloved oatmeal chocolate-chip cookies from the Double Tree Hilton Hotel have been a family favourite of ours. My daughter and I fell in love with these cookies years ago when we received them straight out of the oven during our stay at the hotel. I then introduced them to my sister years later at a food show and any sampling etiquete she had went out the window the moment she tasted these cookies and went back for 1...or 5 more. All that is to say, these cookies are unbelievably delicious so it’s no surprise that when I saw the Hilton Hotels had released our beloved cookie recipe as a quarantine treat, I headed straight to the kitchen.


The cookies turned out even better than we had hoped. The perfect, crunchy yet gooey consistency took me right back to the first time I tasted these delicacies and brought us comfort and happiness right away.


I couldn’t keep this delicious secret to myself, so I’ve decided to share this unmissable recipe for everyone looking to bring a little comforting indulgence to their day
