Cook's Illustrated chewy chocolate chip cookies

sam21479 | Feb 26, 2009 12:20 PM

I recently moved to Denver and am having problems with the big chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe.I have made this numerous times on the East Coast with no problems, but now that I have moved here, my cookies puff in the oven, but as they cool, they flatten out very thin and have odd cracking in the tops.

We are at 5380’. I have tried adjusting the flour, sugar, soda, and refrigerating to see if any of those will work, but nothing has. These are my favorites and I am upset I cannot make them the way I used to. Do any of you have experience making these at high altitude and can provide an alternative recipe?

I am attaching pictures of the cookies if you want to see how they turn out. The ones on the sheet are just out of the oven, and the others are the room temp cookies.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
