    WildFamily's Note:

    It took me almost two years to clue into the fact that most of my formerly successful baking recipes were failing because I moved to a high altitude location. I've yet to try this high altitude recipe for chocolate chip cookies (from the back of the Toll House bag), but certainly plan on it the next time as the cookies I've baked with the regular Toll House recipe turn out flat as can be. The recipe specifies high altitude as 5,200 feet (or 1,585 meters). Feel free to substitute your favorite baking chip -- I like the chocolate caramel swirled kind.

      I live in northern Colorado Springs, the altitude about 6,800 ft. where I am. These cookies did not fall, I repeat... they DID NOT FALL!!! Haha. I have been missing out on this cookie for years because they always collapsed and therefor didn't taste right. Look no further, this is the recipe for you if you are at high altitude! Awesome, thanks!!

      This is the recipe I always use for chocolate chip cookies. I live at 7300 feet. I don't press the dough down too far when I put the dough balls on the pan which helps them not get too flat. High altitude baking is a challenge!
