I tried Nestle's Toll House Choc Chip cookies with their altitude adjustments. [Click Here] . They were pretty lame, didn't flatten, not sweet enough and were way too cakey.
Does anyone have a good choc chip recipe or tweaks for 7000'?

Thanks!

There is a cookbook by Elizabeth Purdy called 'Pie in the Sky' which tries to set some guidelines. Her experience is that cookies spread too much at altitude. Maybe the Nestle adjustments are too much. Her cookie adjustments for chocolate chip cookies at 7000 ft is to cut back on sugar (3/4 cup to 3/4 cup minus 2 tbs), and up vanilla (1 tsp to 1 1/2 tsp). Bake at 350F instead of 375F.

Sorry, Susan Purdy, not Elizabeth. Don't know where that name crept into my feeble brain.

General rule of thumb is to increase the temp 25 degrees, add a TB of flour for each cup of flour, don't overbeat. If you use a package mix follow their high altitude directions religiously. Don't even try to make fudge and angelfood cake takes practice. Good luck! Oh, if you make bread make sure you use the sponge method for good results.

Thanks to all. I'll try those suggestions and look for Pie in the Sky. I do have a cookbook called 'High Plains Sifter.' Happy St. Patrick's Day!

At least some good humor in the titles.

HazMat- if your cookies are too cakey use more butter and less oil and both white sugar and brown sugar.

Usually you'll want to use less water for stuff and cook it longer too.

This is our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe for this altitude, but we prefer ours soft & chewy for munching or dunking:

I looked up the current outage map on the Edison website and I do not see a yellow triangle with an exclamation point over Big Bear. Is the power back on now, SLM?

SLM - Do you think it could be maintenance work? SCE has been upgrading subdivisions all over the region.

Thanks for the cell phone info SNED and Polar. We were checking around different carriers, probably going to stay AT&T who we've had pretty good luck with on forestry areas, believe it or not. Just for possible emergencies, we're not spring chickens any more!

Jilly, I can confirm Verizon works at 34.166788, -116.752112 and T Mobile does not. Just a spot up 1N38 on the south side of 38.

Thanks Doo-hick-way. I am sure I met the inspector at Vons 2 months ago. I mentioned I had not received a violation... must be good? He said no... haven’t been where you live yet and he expected to see a lot of problems. He drives a small white suv. I think a Chevy. I asked my neighbor who is usually at home and he has seen that vehicle around yet. Only asking because I trimmed a couple more trees today in hopes he had not shown up.

I have not physically seen them. But, when I went to Saw Works, there were odd tire tracks at each of my photos from notice to abate.
