If a cookie is hard, I’m not interested. Soft, chewy cookies are the only way to go for me.
In order to keep your moist cookies soft and chewy, place one slice of white bread into the bottom of the container of your choice. I like to pick a container with a tight sealing lid. The cookies will absorb moisture from the bread, which keeps them soft longer. Why white bread? Because it won’t transfer its flavors to the cookies.
A tip that I have read says to replace the piece of bread every other day to keep the cookies soft. I have never replaced the bread, cookies don’t last for more than 3 to 4 days at my house and they always seem to stay soft.
Always remember that the suggested baking time is really only a recommendation and they should be watched closely. I always take my cookies out of the oven when they are still soft to the touch. Your cookies will continue to bake once you remove them from the oven.
