Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sat Feb 09, 2002 12:45 pm

Anyone know the best way to keep chocolate chip cookies soft for prolonged periods of time?

Whenever I make said cookies from scratch, they're as hard as a rock the next day.

I would appreciate any tips you may have!

Thanks!

Second... put a piece of bread in with the cookies.

Bread works. Make sure its not stale. Or a cookie Jar! Or fabric softener.

I hear there's a "soggy cookie" trick, too. Not sure if that's what you're looking for though.

Oh come on guys... I'm being serious here! I didn't want to be ridiculed when I posted this.

I could have gone to the Food Network's bulletin boards and posted it there. However, that would have involved signing up to a board that I never will use in the future.

That will be the last time that I ever post a cooking related question on these boards.

Dude, I told you... use a piece of bread. I'm not fucking around.

If you want tips on the soggy cookie, talk to Matt D. Serious... again.

Oh yea, what do you put in those cookies? Most cookies I know of when they sit out for a longtime get soft, not hard.

Put them into a ziplock bag while still hot, and close the bag.
Vola.

I'm looking for any way to get the cookies to stay moist, soft, and chewy.

For reference I'm using the standard McCall's receipe.

I'm going to try that bread thing too!

Thanks to all who contributed!

It has NOTHING to do with how you keep them, but how you cook them. And you're cooking them too long. Thats the problem, dude. Seriously. Take them out a little sooner than usual. They will not look quite done. But they continue to cook while cooling. If you do it right. They will keep soft on an open plate for a week. It has nothing to do with them getting stale.

Yeah, that's what I thought. I brought it up with my roommates and they were repulsed by the idea that I would pull them out early -- E. Coli and such, I guess.

I'll give a whirl though! Thanks!

JetService is exactly right, just take them out a little early and let them cool! They'll be chewy for ya!

Make sure you take them out a bit early. Cool on a cooling rack, and store in an airtight container. That should keep them soft.

I use the recipie on the back of the Nestle's package, and bake them the alotted time. They always turn out soft and chewy. To keep them that way, I simply store them in an airtight plastic container. Haven't had a rock-hard one yet.
