"If you're tired of having totally flat or stiff and tasteless chocolate chip cookies for the high altitude baker, then this is the recipe for you! If you like firmer cookies, increase the flour by 1/4 cup." — C Erik

I've lived in Colorado 20 years - this is the ONLY chocolate chip cookie recipe that still tastes like "toll house", but works at our altitude. Thank you!!!
Didn't work in Colorado Springs (elev 6000ft). Flat cookies that spread out all over the pan instead of rising.
Yay! It worked! I've used Toll House's high altitude recipe and it was just as flat as the orig. recipe. I've tried others that tasted cakey. This is it! Followed directions exactly but switched to Toll house at the end and added 1C. walnuts and the whole bag (2 cups) of chips. PERFECT. Consistantly baked @ 11min using a small ice cream scoop (1+TBSP maybe?) to spoon on cookie sheet. Whoohoo!!!
Can I just say, thank you, Thank You, THANKYOU!!! I live at a 9,000 Ft. altitude and as you can imagine, making chocolate chip cookies has been a nightmare. This recipe was great! They turned out PERFECT! ....FINALLY!
I live at 6900 ft and mastered most other cookies, but not choco chip cookies. These were awesome!!! They rose well after baking and look like REAL cookies instead of the flat masses I've been making. They taste great, and have the right texture. My kids inhaled them after school today. I will make this (finally!) my new choco chip cookie recipe. Thank you!!!
I added the extra flour and an extra 1/2 cup of choc bits to make it a little crunchier and choclate-ier. Definatley worth a try, turned out quite nice, caramelised and crunchy on the outside and softer but not gooey on the inside. Nice with a big glass of milk. Beware: a little moorish!!
I moved to Evanston WY three years ago, which is 6850 above sea level. Im from the midwest and never had a problem making cookies untill i moved here. I have tried several chocolate chip recipes and none worked untill i tried this one. I just follwed the directions and got perfect cookies. I will use this recipe again.
Worked great at 4500 feet! This was just what I've been looking for- I'd only reccomend adding more chocolate chips, since I'm a chocoalate fiend.
