Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie - AKA Doubletree Hotel Copy Cat Cookie

So, ever since I tasted a Doubletree Hotel cookie I have been obsessed.  If you have never had one, it is simply cookie perfection.  No really, it IS!!!!!!!

So in my quest to find a good copy cat recipe, I stumbled upon Food Geeks interpretation of what a Doubletree Cookie tastes like.  It’s not exactly it, but it sure is close.  REAL CLOSE!

¼ cup rolled oats
1 cup + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
¾ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
pinch of cinnamon
½ cup of unsalted butter
¼ cup + 2 tbsp brown sugar
¼ cup + 2 tbsp white sugar
¾ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp lemon juice
1 egg
¼ cup dark chocolate morsels
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
½ cup milk chocolate morsels
½ cup coarsely chopped pecans

~ Preheat oven to 325 degrees (I’m a low and slow gal)
~ Grind rolled oats in a food processor until fine
~ Combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside
~ In the bowl of an electric mix, cream butter, sugars, vanilla and lemon juice
~ Add egg and mix until combined
~Scrape down sides if necessary
~ Add flour mixture and mix until combined
~ Fold in chocolate chips and nuts
~ Chill dough for 30 minutes or overnight (I did 30 minutes, I just can’t make a cookie dough today and eat it tomorrow – sooooo not my style)
~ Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and scoop dough onto sheet
~ Bake for 15 – 20 minutes
~ Remove from oven, let cool and enjoy (in my case IMMEDIATELY!)

Stay Sweet!
