  • After I bake cookies and let them cool off just a little I put them inside a zip lock bag and they stay soft and chewy for a long time.

  • I don't cook them for as long as it says to.

  • I usually bake them a tad less than the directions say, and dont leave them sitting out, and that will get them chewy

  • Don't over cook them and make sure to put them on the cooling rack right away because they continue to cook on the hot pan. Have fun!

  • Substitue some peanut butter for the butter in any cookie recipe. If you are allergic, try using a little vegetable oil instead of some of the butter. It works great :)

  • Underbake them, then when you store them, put a slice or two of bread in with them. It'll keep your soft cookies soft!

  • use butter not shortening and underbake fro a few minutes, store in a tupperware type container not a loose lid cookie jar.
