These are really good - I must have done something wrong because mine made more than 26 cookies

newsroom.hilton.com/static-doubletree-reveals-cookie-recipe.htm

DoubleTree Signature Cookie Recipe - Makes 26 cookies

½ pound butter, softened (2 sticks)
¾ cup + 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
¾ cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 ¼ cups flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
Pinch cinnamon
2 2/3 cups Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 3/4 cups chopped walnuts

Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes.

Add eggs, vanilla and lemon juice, blending with mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, then medium speed for about 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy, scraping down bowl.

With mixer on low speed, add flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, blending for about 45 seconds. Don’t overmix.

Remove bowl from mixer and stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.

Portion dough with a scoop (about 3 tablespoons) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about 2 inches apart.

Preheat oven to 300°F. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.

Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet for about 1 hour.

Cook’s note: You can freeze the unbaked cookies, and there’s no need to thaw. Preheat oven to 300°F and place frozen cookies on parchment paper-lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.

I'm with Anne, except for the nuts (and oatmeal) they sound good. And I've never heard of lemon juice in cookies either. Can you taste it? I have a boiled frosting that uses vinegar. I was a little concerned that it would be tasted, but it isn't. I'm going to be making it today for my mom as she's been hounding me to make a chocolate cake.
Teen, do you have the recipe for your cinnamon roll cake? That sounds delicious too.

Alrighty. Our favorite gluten free flour is definitely Bobs Red Mill 1to1 substitute. When you use it, you can't even tell it's gluten free. I just replace the flour in this recipe with the gluten free substitute.

lilluna.com/cinnamon-roll-cake-recipe/#wprm-recipe-container-99563

Ingredients

Cake
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup butter melted
Cinnamon Topping
3/4 cup butter softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp cinnamon
Glaze
2 cups powdered sugar
5 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
Instructions
Mix flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs and vanilla together.
Stir in melted butter, slowly. Pour into greased 9x13 pan.
Mix cinnamon topping ingredients. Drop over cake mixture evenly.
Swirl your topping and cake mixture with a knife going up and down the length of the pan (but only inserting it in the cake mix a little - not all the way).
Bake at 350 for 28-32 minutes.
Mix glaze ingredients together. Drizzle over the cake while it's still warm. ENJOY!

I like to let it cool for about 5 minutes and then pour the glaze over it. I also recommend using a glass pan if you have one. It might not be the healthiest thing, but it is very delicious!

I am with both of you Anne & Cindy - I left out the nuts. I like a handful of nuts but I don't like them messing up my cookies or ice cream :)

Cindy really the oatmeal isn't bad in them - and you really can't taste the lemon juice, you do taste a hint of that cinnamon. These cookies are really good!!

Cindy what is your recipe for the boiled frosting? Are you making that chocolate cake from scratch?

Oh teen that Cinnamon Roll Cake sounds delicious - I've printed it and will be making it. Thanks!!

Well, I have no excuse now not to try these recipes! We bought a 20kg (about 44lbs) bag of flour the other day. Guess I had better get baking! I'll have to print these 2 recipes out.
Yes, the chocolate cake is from scratch, one of the easiest ones I've made. Mum has been asking for one for a while now, so figured Mother's Day would be a good time to make it. She had a fall 2 weeks ago and kept saying she didn't want a cake, but Steven and I knew she would like this one.
The recipe for the frosting is:
2 egg whites
1 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of water
1 tsp vinegar
Beat the egg whites till it holds its shape
Boil the sugar, water and vinegar to 238 degrees F
Add to the whites and beat till stiff. Add 1 tsp vanilla.
It's so delicious, we made a batch the next day just to have extra with the cake! Now we have extra frosting and no cake left!

Cindy the icing sounds heavenly!! Ok - now the cake recipe please :)

PS - It took me weeks before I could get flour to make those cookies, and only received a 5 pound bag & not my favorite brand - I need to start adding flour to my online grocery store order & hope to get some in the near future.

I prefer the Robin Hood brand and they've been having trouble getting their yellow bags, so right now it's in a white one. I'll post the cake recipe in a bit. Time to have supper.

Ok, here's the cake recipe.
It's called Crazy Chocolate cake:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa 1/2 cup oil
11/2 cups flour 1 egg
1 tsp baking soda 1/2 cup milk
1 tsp salt 2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder 1/2 cup hot water
Mix dry ingredients then add wet and mix well. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes
It is sooooooo goood! And with the boiled frosting, it's to die for!

It's been hard to find flour and sugar, luckily we had stocked up on sugar and buy the gluten free flour instead. I would love to try out both of the recipes but my sister is allergic to chocolate and we ran out of butter.

Thank you Cindy - looks delicious !!

Teen, know what you mean about the sugar - took a while before I got some in my online pickup order at the grocery store.
Do you think butterscotch pieces or no chips at all would be good in the cookies - what about raisins? We use Benecol instead of butter.

Bob's Red Mill makes good products! I use a few.

Looking forward to trying these out (minus nuts) once my wrists are fully functioning again...could be a while as physio says it will be a long, slow job for my right one.

Mel, I use a tube pan. I think it may be an 8 inch. I've been using the one pan since I started making the cake.
mrsb, I've been wondering how your wrists were.

Cindy, the left one has healed well and I have virtually full movement but it aches if I over do things. The right one has healed but I have been left with a displacement of 10%-15%. This is annoying as the realignment was 100% following manipulation. I was told that all osteoporotic fractures are unstable and it could have been worse. The biggest problem once the plaster came off my carpal tunnel syndrome was horrendous. I've been referred to a physio who is very optimistic that I will gain most function back but it will be a long, slow job. Lots of gentle exercises every 2-3 hours and sleeping with an angled splint on but there has definitely been some improvement over the last week.

Thank you Cindy - not sure what size my tube or bundt pans are but one should do it.

Anne I'm sorry you are having trouble with that right wrist, bless your heart! Glad you are getting PT and I hope that makes things better for you! And it is good to hear you are seeing improvement! Were you told that eventually you will have arthritis in that wrist? When I broke my shoulder on Jan 16, 2018 [won't ever forget that date] the physical therapist told me arthritis would set in at some point, never expected it this soon but it has and that is not fun.

Yes I was warned about arthritis. I've already got it in left thumb and a couple of toes. Never heard of tube or bundt pans before today. Had to google them !!

3 years ago when mum was in the hospital as Steven and I were leaving one evening, somehow I sprained my hand walking up the stairs (I don't like elevators!). I remember hitting it on the railing, but it didn't hurt that night. The next morning when we got up, I could barely move it. I told him we were going to the ER before going up to see mum. Only had to have it wrapped for 7 days, but wound up doing physio on it. Was never told I could end up with arthritis in it.
I don't have a bundt pan, but would love to have one! I have 2 tube pans, but seem to prefer one over the other.

Now that you mention it Cindy I do remember that happening to you. I hope you do not get arthritis in it! I think prednisone for almost 4 years straight probably didn't help me. I'm just concerned now that I'll have a frozen shoulder. Do have arthritis in right fingers/thumb, hands at wrist on the out side,

I have a bundt pan, tube pan and a spring form pan - read you can use a spring form pan in place of a tube pan but I never have. I use the spring form pan mainly for cheese cake - since haven't made it in years that pan hasn't been used.

Don't get me started on the topic of Prednisolone.
I am so glad the updated guidelines state "If a response is seen (eg, platelets >50 × 109/L), the predniso(lo)ne should be tapered, aiming to stop predniso(lo)ne by 6 weeks (maximum 8 weeks), even if the platelet count drops during the taper."

When I was first diagnosed, I was put on a high dose of prednisone. Couldn't handle it and complained to one of the nurses and she told me I would have to take it up with the doctor. Next thing I knew, she was back and telling me I could drop to 30mgs. It helped big time. My poor dog saw the worst of the side effects! I was doing weekly IVIG's for the first year after diagnosis. Never really got off it until after the Rituxan. I was on different doses during that time. I was told a long time ago I had arthritis in parts of my body and would probably get it in more spots. So far, so good!
I have a set of 3 spring form pans, different sizes. Don't use them much

I was put on 60mg to start with and was decreased to 30mg a couple weeks later because they wanted me off it before we moved to Tokyo - well that big a drop in pred did me in and had to go up to 60mg again, moved on 60mg & not knowing if I'd have a hematologist once we arrived in Tokyo. My poor family of males saw the worst of the side effects - what a *itch I was.

Haven't baked yet - thinking I might try the spring form pan for the chocolate cake, maybe :)

My first dose was 50 then up to 60. No real side effects, but it did bother me. My side effects were worse on the lower dose. I read how some of my fellow ITPer's get lots of energy and clean their houses at odd hours of the day. I was never like that. It affected my temper the most. Hope I never have to go back on it!

I had all the side effect along with being a *itch! Hair growth on lower neck in back, neck hump, sideburns, no sleep, weight gain looking like the Pillsbury Dough Boy - so much so that I barely looked like my passport photo, it's funny now but wasn't then! When we went to get our driver's licenses in Tokyo it took forever because they didn't believe I was the person in my passport photo - was NOT funny then but is now when I think about it.

I started on 45mg which was correct for my weight, ate like a horse but never put on a gram. Hardly surprising though I was a was a completely manic insomniac , house was spotless as I was cleaning it at 2am every day. All cupboards were cleaned too. Never had an ironing pile for more than half a day. Didn't bother using the dishwasher as hand washing up gave me something to do. Every so often I would keel over and have a couple of hours sleep. (All totally out of character I am usually a complete slob.) GP refused to let me go back to work said I was incapable of practicing safely.
