Need Help With Betty Crocker Brownies And Cookies
0

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone else live at over 7,000 feet in altitude? I am unable to make Betty Crocker cookies or brownies due to this. The cookies are like hard hockey pucks and the brownies rise and fall quickly as soon as them come out of the oven. When they cool, they are hard like tar that has melted in the sun and hardened. I followed the high altitude directions but it is only for up to 5,000 feet.

I have no problems with the cake, the altitude directions are the same except for the temp and baking time.

Does anyone have any idea of what I could do to make these mixes work?

Thanks - MO

I noticed the cookie mix is very sensitive to the temperature of the butter. It must be solid and the batter firm. Refrigerate it if it isn't.

I turn my oven up apx. 10-25 degrees making those cookies. I think it's the altitude that makes me cook my stuff at higher temps, not lower. Ive tested my oven temp and it claims its spot on. I've only cooked gluten-free in this oven ( and its gas) and I've struggled the whole time. It took increasing the temp on most things....otherwise it just bakes forever and never DOES anything.

And I like crunchy chocolate chip cookies...the mix is crunchy to me not fluffy.

I'm at 2700 ft?? We're right on the line of high altitude baking.

I don't think I've tried the brownies. I tried the cake mix and it came out terrible.

Thanks Prickly. I just bought a box of the cookies. I am going to try your tips. The cake mix makes pretty good banana bread.

Shadow, I don't think that we can use the brownie mix this high in our altitudes but the other mixes will work just fine.

I made the brownies at sea level and they also came out like the black tar thing. The next time I undercooked them a bit and although they still fell flat as a pancake they sure were good!

I'm not at a high altitude, but love her brownies. Hope you can get them to work.

    • Welcome!   It looks like your daughter is on her way to a celiac diagnosis.  Everyone is different, but I think you will have to wait until the biopsies come back from the Pathologist.  My endoscopy looked fine visually, yet my biopsies revealed intestinal damage (the villi are microscopic!)  The important thing at this point is that she must still be eating gluten daily for the endoscopy.  Once you get a diagnosis (sometimes labs lose stuff), then she can go gluten free.  Both an elevated TTG and EMA leans strongly to a celiac diagnosis and not something else. I would advise reading some books at your local library about celiac disease and read about it online too.  Read through the forum postings as they contain great tips.  We are here to help you with your questions.  
    • Welcome Tanya!   I know you must be suffering so!  Do you know if this is a celiac rash?  I do not have DH, but many of our members do.  Here is more information and possible treatment: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ https://www.verywell.com/dapsone-short-term-relief-562992

    • Thanks cyclinglady, that makes me feel more confident to give it a try.  I really need more fat in my diet and nuts would really help right now.  I'm going to try this. Yeah, there may be days when I don't want to work so hard to get nuts out of the shells! I really hope my body lets me eat some nuts and seeds so I'm going to try adding them in slowly. Thanks again.
