^High Altitude Baking^

Since we recently moved I have been having a hard time with getting my favorite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies to turn out:(  They are flat and hard!  My mom suggested it is from my change in altitude.  So I was excited when I came across a tip from Bakerella to check out this website....

I am around 5600 ft so I am definitely going to try adjusting this recipe and see if it helps.  Like she says, try out the original recipe first cause it may just work and if not then make adjustments.  My mom is at about 7000 ft so this will help her cookies as well...shhh don't tell her but her cookies are always flat!;)  Hope this helps some of you and a recipe that never turns out quite right!!
