This cookie brings back so many memories! My best friend, Christine introduced me to this cookie recipe! Yes, these are the cookies that you get when you stay at a Hilton DoubleTree® hotel.
Christine and I spent many December nights, making these cookies for our family and friends. It was one of my Papa’s favorite cookies. He used to ask every Christmas for these but he referred to them as “his Christine’s cookies”! I’ll be honest I haven’t made these since he passed away. But when I was preparing my 12 days of cookies list, I knew these cookies had to be a part of it. So this past weekend, I dusted off the recipe card and got to work. I was flooded with so many memories of my Papa and how much he loved all my Christmas cookies. This is why I love cooking, the memories, each recipe brings!
OMG! I forgot how amazingly delicious these cookies are! They are incredibly chewy with crispy edges and have so much flavor! DoubleTree® knew what they were doing when they created this recipe!
Trust me, this will become one of your favorites and you will definitely want to dip it into a tall glass of cold milk.
