Cranberry Fudge Brownies

By Chef Megan Joy / November 20, 2014

Favorite recipes. They can years to find, but are irreplaceable. Your go-to  time and time again. They never disappoint, only continue to impress… The tricky thing about favorite recipes is that they can also keep you from enjoying new ones. I recently discovered this. You see, for a long time I was all about this brownie […]


Key Lime Pie Sandwich Cookies

By Chef Megan Joy / August 10, 2014

When August rounded the corner a little over a week ago, I panicked. Where had summer gone?  This has been my busiest summer by far, filled with lots of beautiful weddings and wonderful clients, but with weddings every weekend it sure does fly.  I made these cookies on a whim the other evening. First, I […]


Peanut Butter & Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

By Chef Megan Joy / June 21, 2014

As we make our way into July, wedding season is now officially in full swing. I can’t even remember the last day I had ‘off’. Strangely, this afternoon while I was making tonight’s dinner, I felt the urge to bake something other than cake.  Cookies sounded good, but what kind? I immediately thought of this […]


Chocolate Stout Brownies

By Chef Megan Joy / March 16, 2014

In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to divert from my usual brownie recipe and make something a bit more festive- these chocolate stout brownies. Living in Colorado, we are so spoiled when it comes to craft beer, so I opted to use something local rather than Guinness. Any strong, dark, malty stout […]


Neiman Marcus Cookies

By Chef Megan Joy / March 3, 2014

Happy March! I’m so delighted that we’ve been seeing more sunshine and warmer temperatures. Dare I say it’s starting to feel like spring?  I’ve been enjoying these cookies this week. I made the full batch of dough but only baked off a few at a time- I like them warm and gooey. Similar to an […]


Double Lemon Bars

By Chef Megan Joy / February 13, 2014

My mom just left town today. She was visiting from the Midwest, where the temps there lately have been insanely frigid. We were hoping for some bluebird days during her visit, but Colorado decided it would be overcast, cloudy, and snowy instead. We still had a great time though, and she also got to meet […]


Snowy Day Blondies

By Chef Megan Joy / January 14, 2014

Today was one of those sleepy, perfect kind of days off. It was much needed, too- I had two wedding cakes in Aspen last week, Zack’s been working a ton, and we have our new little monster, Abe, to constantly tend to. I never knew puppy training (and care taking) was as much work as […]


Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

By Chef Megan Joy / December 4, 2013

A few weeks ago, a High Altitude Bakes baker alerted me of this recipe and I thought they sounded divine. It was too late to include them in this year’s Holiday Cookie Book, so I decided I would make them later on, and of course, post about it.  That time has arrived! We awoke to […]

I’m pleased to announce we’ve officially launched our second holiday cookbook. This year’s focus is all on holiday cookies and bar cookies, just in time for your seasonal baking!   This is a downloadable, instant-access e-book. You can open it from your computer, or even print it out to have a hard copy. When you […]


Date Pinwheel Cookies and the upcoming The High Altitude Bakes Holiday Cookie Book 2013

By Chef Megan Joy / November 4, 2013

Greetings friends! I’m very excited today because I just finished proof-reading a close-to-completion High Altitude Bakes Holiday Cookie Book 2013! I’ve been working quite diligently for the past few weeks on this. My kitchen, at times, resembled a cookie factory. Assorted cookie doughs were lined up in rows chilling patiently in my refrigerator, sheet trays […]
