Pumpkin Cheesecake Snickerdoodle Cookies

By Chef Megan Joy / September 28, 2013

It seems as though every time I’m on Pinterest, this cookie pops up. I think I may have emailed my mom the link to the recipe with the subject “omg”. Last night, while it was SNOWING, these were in my oven. They were so excellent I even had one for breakfast today. The cookie dough […]


Pecan Sandies

By Chef Megan Joy / July 13, 2013

I go back and forth on my favorite type of nuts. Usually I’d say pistachios, or marcona almonds, but then when I taste cookies like these ones, I can’t deny my love for the pecan. If I didn’t love chocolate so much, I could say sandies are one of my most beloved cookies. Buttery, crunchy, […]


Classic Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Marshmallow Filling

By Chef Megan Joy / May 30, 2013

Now that I am back in the mountains after visiting family in Indiana for a few weeks, I’ve finally had some high altitude kitchen time. Being at sea level because I had to remind myself not to ‘altitude adjust’ whenever I baked anything! In Indiana, all of the trees and shrubs were blossoming when I […]


Iced Sugar Cookies

By Chef Megan Joy / April 7, 2013

When I was younger, I’d scrape the frosting off of sugar cookies and eat that part first. I’ve evolved a little bit since then, but I still do enjoy a good frosted cookie. It has to have the right balance though- the cookie either needs to be fluffy  (think Black and White Cookie), or crunchy, […]


Snickerdoodle Cookies

By Chef Megan Joy / February 14, 2013

When I was in high school the lunch ladies made the most amazing chocolate chip and snickerdoodle cookies. They came in little bags of two and were kept warm during lunch service. Crispy on the edges and gooey in the centers, I couldn’t resist buying them. I’d fight drowsiness the rest of the afternoon, particularly […]


Orange Marmalade Cookies

By Chef Megan Joy / January 29, 2013

As you can see in the previous two posts, my kitchen has turned into a mini orange marmalade factory recently. I decided to experiment with some marmalade and utilize it in a cookie. These came out great- they’re soft, buttery, tender, and filled with just the right amount of cheery, brightly-flavored homemade Seville Orange Marmalade. […]


Greek Holiday Twist Cookies

By Chef Megan Joy / December 11, 2012

Another day, another Christmas cookie favorite. I bake all of the holiday cookies that I do because I love them, but I honestly think this recipe is one of my ultimate top picks. The twists take a little extra time to roll and shape, but they are the perfect cookie. Lightly sweet, a little bit […]


Chewy Walnut Treasure Cookies

By Chef Megan Joy / December 9, 2012

The holiday baking continues! Here is another Christmas cookie recipe from my family. My mom found this in our newspaper years ago and it’s just one of those recipes that always tastes like the holidays to me. I also have a soft spot for these cookies because they are a little more unique than the […]


Nutmeg Meltaways And Snow

By Chef Megan Joy / December 9, 2012

Bear with me a bit longer…The High Altitude Bakes Holiday Cookbook is coming soon, I promise. We are just ironing out the wrinkles. Soon you will be on your way to even more holiday baking at altitude! In the meantime, I’ve been busy in my kitchen baking up some homemade gifts- jars of cranberry pomegranate […]
