Greetings, friends!

I am in the process of putting together another High Altitude Bakes holiday cookbook this year. It will feature various cookie and bar cookie recipes that are perfect for celebrating this upcoming time of year.

In doing so, I have been trying to brainstorm what types of cookies you’d all like to see in the book. Like last year’s, it will be a downloadable, instant-access e-book. We’ll be selling it at a discounted price during its first week on sale, for those interested.

I’m thinking a happy mix of family favorites, Christmas classics, unique treats, and festive-themed cookies/bar cookies- decorated cut-out gingerbread cookies, cheesecake bars, homemade fig newtons, peanut butter sandwich cookies, pecan pie bars…the list goes on. Each recipe will also be accompanied with a photo.

If I want to finish this book for its launch by November, I’ll need to know what recipes you all may be interested in. Is there a type of cookie that just tastes like Christmas to you and you’re not sure how to make it at altitude? Does anyone have a family recipe they’d like to submit, have adjusted, and possibly be featured in the book?

Please let me know your thoughts and ideas in the comments section below. Recipes can be emailed to

Thanks everyone, and happy baking!
