If you’ve ever checked into a DoubleTree by Hilton property, you’ve undoubtedly been welcomed with a warm, freshly baked chocolate chip cookie. Now, this signature of the American hotel chain and a record holder – it’s the first food to be baked in orbit during experiments aboard the International Space Station – can be whipped up in your kitchen. While countless attempts to recreate these delicious cookies have been made over the years, DoubleTree by Hilton has just revealed the official recipe to its best-kept secret – and the timing could not be better.
By now, it’s common knowledge that people everywhere are turning to stress-baking in an attempt to cope with the ongoing pandemic. “We know this is an anxious time for everyone,” said Shawn McAteer, senior vice president and global head of DoubleTree by Hilton. “A warm chocolate chip cookie can’t solve everything, but it can bring a moment of comfort and happiness. We hope families enjoy the fun of baking together during their time at home, and we look forward to welcoming all our guests with a warm DoubleTree cookie when travel resumes.” Whether you’re a professional baker or currently curled up with a copy of Baking for Dummies, this iconic recipe is a must-try.
