While burgers are always delicious off the grill, this cookie burger recipe takes the bun in a whole new direction. If you are ready to add a little savory and sweet to the dinner table, this innovative recipe is definitely one to try.

Many cooks try to push the envelope with recipes. From exotic ingredients to innovative flavors, sometimes the traditional dish is just a little bland. With a few twists, that dish can go from boring to bodacious.

A burger is a classic, almost all-American food. While people have their special seasoning blend, preferred doneness levels or must have condiment, the reality is that it is meat between a bun. And, that bun could be the game changer.

In various recipes, the bun isn’t just two pieces of a bread. Sure, people can debate the benefits of a brioche bun versus a pretzel bun versus a potato bun. But, when that bun is a donut, waffle or something else, it changes the whole burger eating experience.

DoubleTree by Hilton Shenyang – Shenyang, China has a quite different take on a burger. Instead of a bread, its bun is two cookies. It might change the burger eating experience forever.

The DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie is legendary. When the brand released its recipe a few years ago, everyone had to make whip up a dozen or two at home. There is nothing more satisfying than hot chocolate chip cookies from the oven.

With this recipe, those classic chocolate chip cookies hold a juicy burger. While many people love that savory and sweet (think of chicken and waffles), this cookie burger recipe will have people talking.

Here’s how to make the ultimate cookie burger recipe.

DoubleTree Cookie Burger


  • 2 frozen DoubleTree Cookie “pucks”
  • 1 hamburger patty, seasoned and cooked to preference
  • 1 slice tomato
  • 1 slice cheese
  • 1 leaf of lettuce


  • Preheat oven to 200° C (395° F).
  • Reduce each piece of frozen DoubleTree Cookie dough by 1/3, leaving a 2/3-sized portion of each.
  • Place both 2/3-sized portions of DoubleTree Cookie dough on a baking sheet, and place in the oven for 12 minutes, or until a golden-brown color is achieved.
  • Remove the DoubleTree Cookie from the oven and let cool.
  • Using one DoubleTree Cookie bun, layer lettuce, hamburger, tomato and cheese as desired.
  • Add the cooked hamburger patty and top with the remaining DoubleTree Cookie bun.

While this recipe is relatively straightforward, it does offer the ability to customize it a little. From the seasoning on the burger to the type of cheese, there are many options. For example, a sharp cheddar could be a nice flavor contrast to the burger and cookie combination.

Also, it might be best to skip the condiments with this cookie burger recipe. The addition of mustard, mayonnaise or ketchup could make the flavors too muddled.

If you are looking to make a statement at the next backyard barbecue or family dinner, why not try this cookie burger recipe? It will definitely spark a conversation around the table.
