If you’ve ever been a guest at the Inn at Playa del Rey, you’ve most likely indulged in one of our famous chocolate chip cookies - or two! For years, our guests have wanted to know our secret recipe and the time has come for us to share! 

Here at the Inn we love our cookies to be nice and thick, chewy and golden brown but everyone has their own preferences. Below you’ll find a chart you can use to tweak our recipe to make your chocolate chip cookies just the way you like them! 

Post photos of your cookies to our Facebook Page – we’d love to see how our cookies turned out in your oven!

Happy Baking!

p.s. If your cookies don’t come out the way you remember, don't worry- our true secret ingredient is our vintage 1950’s Wedgewood oven!
