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.

Don't blame me! I was left unsupervised!

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:

Geographically speaking, Boulder Bay is on the west side of Meadow Park. XD

Skypark is indeed getting hammered. Was there last Sunday, crowds were unbelievable. Did two runs & called it day.

What a rotten year to be a ski resort owner. You get shut down in the spring due to COVID while there's still 5 feet of snow on the ground and perfect weather, then again in the fall due to forest closure while there's still a month of good mountain biking weather. I guess that's a gift to Skypark, they're probably getting hammered right now.

Should move the forest closed sign again? They just move it back. Haha.
I have a plethora of giant (3-6 footers) granite boulders I could tractor down, if I had an opening dimension and permission. Hehe, too much work.. and none of my business anyway.

Rocks for sale?
"Based on national research, the average costs for landscape boulders are: Average Minimum Cost of Landscaping Boulders: $100 per ton. Average Maximum Cost of Landscaping Boulders: $600 per ton."
