Think you can't improve on the Original Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe? You can if you live at a high altitude (3500 to 6000 feet) and you make the recommended adjustments by the Nestle Company. I have made these cookies since I was young girl and it was only recently that I noticed the footnote regarding high altitude modifications. The first batch I made using these adjustments gave stellar results. The old cliche that "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" is a myth when it comes to bakers and their tried and true recipes. If you live and bake at high altitudes, consider modifications to help you go from "good" to "great!"
