The high altitudes of the Roaring Fork Valley can complicate things when it comes to baking those holiday treats: cookies can spread and cakes can collapse into craters.  According to two experts from Colorado State University Extension, just a few small changes can help.

On Christmas Day aromas of cookies, turkey and other holiday foods will spill from kitchens up and down the Roaring Fork Valley. Baking and cooking in our region can be tricky because of its high elevation. Some food fanatics find it difficult to get their fare just right. Colorado State University’s extension office held a class in Basalt this month on how to prepare food in the high country. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen was there and filed this report.
