"Award winning accommodations
in scenic Boulder Canyon."
The Alps is known
as much for the freshness and quality of its delicious breakfasts as it is for its luxurious accommodations. These are two of
our guests favorites.
Alps Butter Pecan Belgian
This is a terrific waffle recipe,
the best we have tasted. These waffles are easy to make and have a
great buttery pecan flavor.
2 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, unsalted melted
1/2 cup pecans, chopped (walnuts may be substituted)
Preheat a waffle iron. Spray iron
with non-stick spray before first waffle. In a bowl, whip the egg
whites until stiff, but not dry. Set aside. In a separate bowl,
food processor or blender, combine the egg yolks, milk, baking powder,
flour and melted butter. Beat until smooth. By hand, fold in the reserved
egg whites and the chopped pecans. Proceed according to waffle iron
manufacturer's directions. These waffles taste great with maple syrup
or your favorite toppings. Garnish with pecan halves.
Alps Cowboy Cookies
Our guests rave about these cookies
so we always keep plenty on hand. We make some with chocolate chips
and some with raisins.
1-1/4 cups butter flavored Crisco
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/2 cups oats, rolled and dry
1-1/4 cups corn or bran flakes cereal
1 cups chocolate chips or raisins
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large
bowl, cream together shortening and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder
and salt: add to the creamed mixture. In a separate bowl, combine
oats, corn or bran flakes, and chocolate chips or raisins. Add to
the dough mixture by hand. Bake at 325 degrees for 12 minutes or until
the edges turn brown and the centers still look chewy.
