What alterations to baking recipes are really necessary at the 6900 foot level? Want to make yeast breads, quick breads, and cookies.

Generally you increase baking powder by 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon, increase liquids by 2 - 4 Tablespoons, decrease sugar by 0 to 2 Tablespoons. Often the recipe will say to increase the oven temperature by 25 degrees and reduce the bake time by 20%. You will need to grease pans better since things stick at high altitude and fill pans only 1/2 full instead of 3/4 full. Also, be aware that yeast dough rises more quickly at altitude. Cookies will probably turn out fine without modifications but it really makes a difference for cakes and breads.
