Colorado Egg Producers serve up high altitude baking tips for the Holidays

Monday, December 17, 2012

Do you ever wonder what makes this season the most wonderful time of the year? The Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association suspects the delectable sweets we suddenly find ourselves surrounded by play a role. Sugar cookies, gingerbread, cheesecake – take your pick or eat them all! Preparing and eating holiday desserts is an enjoyable activity for many each holiday season, including this one. However, baking in the high altitude that most Coloradans love can be a challenge for your cookies and cakes. CEP understands this dilemma, and is here to help with some high-altitude baking tips. Don’t forget to stock up on locally produced Colorado eggs, as they’re typically a crucial part of the baking process.

CEP, a membership organization representing seven farms, wants everyone to get the most out of the holiday baking season. In Colorado it’s especially important to keep our high altitude in mind. Here are a few tips courtesy of joyofbaking.com, baking911.com and ochef.com:
