Top Secret Recipes Version of Doubletree Hotel's Chocolate Chip

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Anita Harris

Heavenly is all I can say!! I had these cookies on a trip many years ago while staying at a Doubletree Hotel (they left one on each pillow each day after cleaning the rooms) and always thought they were "THE BEST" chocolate chip cookies I had ever eaten! I have searched High and Low for a recipe for anything similar to what I had eaten at the Doubletree and recently found this recipe (unfortunately I can't remember where I got the recipe from)and have made them several times since. They are a little more time-consuming than regular chocolate chip cookies but well worth the extra time! This recipe makes extra large cookies. I'm not sure as to the exact prep time and I don't always chill the dough overnight) From Even More Top Secret Recipes.

OMG, I think this is the best chocolate cookie chip cookie I%u2019ve made so far! I think the ground oat meal, cinnamon and lemon really set it apart from all others. Cut back on the sugar to 1/2 cup each. Got rave reviews.
