Everyone loves fresh cookies right out of the oven and they are all warm and chewy.
What happens with the leftovers? How do you store them? Are they hard just in a day or two?
These are very good questions if you like to bake cookies and keep them around the house for yourself or the kids. As long as I can remember my mom would make cookies and then stick a piece of bread into the sealed container. It wasn’t until I was older that I really understood why she did this.
Just one slice of bread will keep your cookies moist and chewy for a longer period of time. If you notice that the bread is no longer soft don’t worry because the cookies are taking all of the moisture. If you forget to put a piece of bread in right away don’t worry you can still add it a day or two later to make them chewy again.
