How about store bought cookies that are just too hard to eat?
An easy fix that has been around for ages (I have been doing it since I learned it over 35 years ago) is to use a piece or two of white bread (I have only used white bread but any soft bread will do) and stick it in the cookie jar or sealed containter. Try to place the bread upright along the side or divide in half and place next to the cookies. If the bread directly touches the bread, I have found that the cookie becomes very soft almost crumbly.
Within hours, depending upon the softness of the bread and the hardness of the cookie, you will have softer cookies. The bread acts like a moisturizer and keeps the cookies soft. There are other ways that I have heard but have not tried such as:
- microwave for a few seconds
- use an apple cut up
I hope you remember this simple kitchen trick the next time your receive a gift of hard cookies and think they have to be thrown away. Try a couple pieces of bread!
