Hi Rachel, I'm pasting this here as well for others' reference: I'm sorry to say that I don't have any high-altitude baking tips (and Genius Desserts doesn't tackle high-altitude modifications). I know how complicated it can be so I think it's best to refer to a dedicated expert, like Susan Purdy—are you familiar with her work? Here's her site: http://www.highaltitudebaking.com/

Susan Purdy did write 'Pie in the sky' which is pretty good for reference. I happen to live in between her testing zones however. (6035 ft) Generally speaking add about 2 TBSP up to 1/4 cup of flour. Reduce the sugar by about 2 TBSP per cup. Reduce leavening by 1/8-1/4tsp. Pre heat the oven hotter than what is called for, and then immediately set the temp to the recipe. This helps to stabilize the baked item.
