Biting into a homemade chocolate chip cookie to find it dried out and lackluster is just as upsetting as discovering it’s actually oatmeal-raisin. We’ve all gone through it, and there’s no downplaying the disappointment.
Although another oatmeal-raisin cookie is sure to fool us in the future, there’s an easy way to keep your cookies as fresh as when they just came out of the oven--and everything you need is already in your kitchen.
After your cookies have cooked completely and you’re loading them into a Ziploc bag or a Tupperware container, pop a single slice of white bread on the top. This kitchen staple has moisture that your cookies desperately need. As the days go by (our cookies never survive more than a week), the cookies absorb the moisture from the bread, keeping them soft and supple like bakery-style confections while the bread becomes stale and hard.
When you’re done devouring those perfect cookies, simply toss the piece of bread. It served its delicious purpose well.
