I have all these little handy tips in my head that I always want to share with people but when I think about writing a post, it would be super short and therefore not post-worthy. So this is what I’m going to do about that…a series called “Simple Tips.” Every now and then I will share something under that category of “Simple Tips” mmkay?
Today’s Simple Tip: How to Make Hard Cookies Soft….Put a piece of bread in the box with the cookies!
Many of you might already know this tip for keeping your home-baked cookies soft, but did you know that it also works to soften cookies that are hard?
I bought some $1 chocolate chips cookies from the grocery store bakery the other day and was unpleasantly surprised to find they were hard and crunchy…NOT my preference for cookies. So I put a piece of bread in the cookie box and tried to arrange it so all the cookies touched the bread. A few hours later, they were nice and soft! This is a good way to make store bought cookies better–maybe even pass them off as home made if you’re in a time crunch! 😉
What simple tips do you have? I’d love to hear in the comments!
