Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

These cookies are the best. My husband raves about these cookies and he cant stop eating them. They were fairly simple to make and I had all the ingredients on hand. The recipe only makes about 2 dozen but these are large cookies and very chocolatey. You wont be disappointed.

Made these just as the recipe said and they are delicious!! Had to give them away because it's just me and my husband who is diabetic and I would of ate them all that day. LOL Great recipe will be making again!

These were terrible. Way to dry, I think it is to much flour.

Hi there! We're sorry to hear that you did not like this recipe. If you do decide to give this recipe another chance (We hope you do!), we recommend making sure that you've used the correct amount of oats and measure the 1/2 cup before grinding the oats. We hope that you give this recipe another chance, it's a Test Kitchen favorite!

These were delicious! My Mother-in-Law even said they were the best chocolate chip cookies she's ever had! I made them as directed except for 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon, pecans instead of walnuts, and left the oats as is, unground. They made 21 huge, delicious cookies! D

the rolled oats... quick cooking or regular? does anyone know

Hello! You can use either quick cooking oats or regular oats to make these cookies, as they will be processed anyway. :) Enjoy!

Made these twice now, I don't grind the oats, the first time I made them with 2 cups of milk choc chips and 1cup of raisins. yummy. The second time I made them with 2 cups of semi sweet chips and 1 cup of milk choc caramel chips. Both times they tasted great and everyone loves them. Their comment is the same (Now this is what I call a cookie). Needless to say they go fast!

Made this and it was a hit! Best Chocolate Chip Cookie I ever tasted.

Get out of the way. I want these cookies!!!

This looks like one delicious cookie, I have to make this recipe soon.

The recipe looks easy. I like the fact that it includes oatmeal. I might add a little more cinnamon to my recipe.

What hotel served these? Sounds like there's a good story behind them.

Probably the Doubletree. They give wonderful chocolate chip cookies to all incoming guests.

I believe it is the Nieman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I like the name of this recipe "Famous Hotel..." Pretty swanky! LOL! P

Love Chocolate Chip cookies.

These look delicious! I love chocolate chip cookies! Wish I had some right now!

These look so delicious!

oooooooooo I love the idea of the cinnamon!!

Love cookies with white chocolate in them

Looks good enough to eat.

These look so yummy will have to try this recipe

Sounds good, but I would have to replace the walnuts with pecans. Walnuts burn my tongue badly for 3-4 days. I like the taste of pecans better anyway.

Could you make these cookies smaller and would the cooking time be the same? Thankyou,Barb

Made these for church lent fish supper & everybody loved them. I toasted the oats & walnuts.


I agree! Five stars!! Love these! Certainly some of the best cookies EVER!!

That's strange -- you say you give it five stars but you really only gave it three stars.

5 stars! Love every bite!!! Now I have to go do some exercise!!!

Great recipe! Best cookies!

these cookies were so good I made a double batch everyone was fighting over them I may add some coconut into some of the next batch

Thank you! I found this a very helpful site,

Can I substitute reg white flour for the rolled oats? And if so how much? Oat allergy.

increase the flour by 1/3 cup and omit the oats. If the dough is too sticky add a little more flour until it feels right to you.

I made these yesterday and my husband and me thinks these are the best cookies,the only thing I changed was I used splenda instead of the reg sugar,we don't like the after taste of real sugar so keep it up thanks

I think NO Hotel had cookies this good. Great tast and easy to make.

Recipe for choco. chip cookies (famous hotel style) sounds so good, am going to try soon. Thanks.

Would it be possible for you to list the nutritional contents for this recipe?

Using an online recipe calculator, I figured this out for you...per 1/20 of a recipe, (so one cookie, I assume,): Calories, 393. Total fat, 24g. Saturated fat, 11g. Cholesterol 43mg. Sodium*, 245mg. Potassium, 203mg. Total carbs, 48. Fiber carbs, 3. Protein, 5g. * Re: Sodium, I went with unsalted butter, since that's what most recipes call for. The walnuts did not give an salted or unsalted option, neither in the recipe nor the website calculator, so that adds an element of uncertainty. Hope this help!

That was so nice of you to do that for the lady requesting nutritional values. )
