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:
