In my previous life, I spent a lot of time on the road and in hotels. Once a year a week was spent in Louisville, Kentucky at the Seelbach Hotel. If memory serves me right, it wasn’t a convenient location to our daily destination, but I think the co-workers and I wound up there year after year for the turndown service that included a cookie. Since this is a Hilton, and DoubleTree is “by” Hilton, I figured any cookie called the DoubleTree was worth a try.
The ones at this hotel were the thickest chocolate chip cookies I had ever seen. They weren’t gooey like most thick chocolate chips cookies, they were cakey. I don’t really remember there being any oats in them, but perhaps they were able to grind their oats into a much finer powder than my handy dandy food processor can.
