High Altitude cookie question...8250

MinkeyMonkey | | Dec 24, 2011 01:24 PM

Hi. We are above 8000 feet and I usually stick to the recommendations for altitude adjustments at 7000 feet. Cookies never turn out right (flat, oily, weird) unless I adjust.

I have a recipe that calls for 1/8 teaspoon baking powder. No baking soda is listed.

Since I usually reduce baking powder/soda each by 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon, should I just leave out the baking powder?

It is such a small amount but I don't want to muck up my recipe. We have been eating super-healthy for a couple years so I haven't baked in a long time. Kind of out of practice!

If it helps, here is the recipe:

1/2 C butter
1 C flour
3/4 sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 teaspoon baking powder

Thank you for your ideas!!
