So for those who are unaware, I’ve recently moved from VA to CO. Still looking for that elusive thing called “employment”, but until that happens I’ve got spare time for baking, I suppose. And this means getting accustomed to using the teeny “high altitude” instructions on cake and brownie mixes. Apparently the main thing is that you add more flour. I really have no idea of the scientific principles behind such things, I guess at higher pressures less moisture is required? In any case, I made cookies!
I followed this chocolate chip cookie recipe. I totally swapped out the regular chocolate chips for Andes mint chips. I have only recently discovered Andes mint chips, and they are one of the most magical things I have ever stuck in my mouth. It’s like Andes mints, hacked up into teeny tiny pieces! I had to make cookies with them before I managed to eat them all by the handful.
