Tip: Keeping Cookies Soft

After you have cooked your cookies or brownies and they have cooled, when putting them in the storage area, like a bag or plastic container, put 1-2 pieces of "white" bread in with them. The moisture of the "white" bread will help keep the cookies or brownies soft. Make sure to replace the bread when the bread gets hard.

Add a slice of bread to any kind of cookies. The cookies will pull the moisture from the bread and soften. Every year I add a slice of bread to my Christmas cookies. It works wonderfully.

Question: Soften Hard Cookies

I would like to buy an Oreo type cookie and make it soft so that I can bite it. I am unable to wear my bottom dentures to chew hard food.

I recently heard if you put the hard cookies into a dish with a tight fitting lid and add 2 pieces of bread, the cookies will soften up. Well what I would like to know is this true, I don't want to buy the cookies without a answer from some one. I'm sure others would like to know all so.

I don't know if the bread will soften the cookies or not, I've never tried it. You might try leaving the package open, or leaving a couple of cookies out on the counter, or even putting them in your refrigerator unwrapped overnight & see what happens. I live in humid Oklahoma & I get upset with my kids for leaving the cookie packages open, because the cookies end up getting soft from the humidity! Same thing when we store them in the fridge & the package isn't closed. I'm assuming you have a lot of humidity too? I don't know if it will work for you, but you might give it a try & see.
