I bake on the side and I am wondering how do I get softer cookies?
I've seen recipes for cookies that claim to stay soft. They are called pudding cookies and you add a packet of pudding mix into the batter. I have not tried them, though.
I just tried pudding cookies and that looks like the trick!!! I just wanted to make sure though...thank you!
Depends what kind you want to make. For soft peanut butter ones, you do not put flour in them.
i think no matter whatthe recioe we just overbake sometimes, have learned that with experience and think they have to be dark and hard and not the case and have much softer cookies in baking a couple minutes less. good luck Mary in wi
I've always gotten soft cookies. Nothing special. I just make sure not to overbake the cookies because they'll continue to bake once they're pulled from the oven. I store them in an airtight container, too.

I don't bake mine as long as the directions call for and they come out a little softer.
Your fat to flour ratio is your soft/hard fix. There are soft cookie recipes for all kinds of cookies you just have to look/search for a soft variety. ie... soft sugar cookie. I don't like hard sugar cookies and I've done them a variety of ways looking for that perfect one. Some are made with cake mix, the pudding one mentioned above, butter, lard/crisco all seem to make a hard or crisp piecrust type. I prefer using cream cheese replacing 3/4th of the fat in any recipe. This gives a flavor and softness that won't break or crumble with decorating. Sour cream sugar cookies are softer too. I just prefer the cream cheese. Experiment and feed your family and friends, co-workers. let them be the judge and eat up the calories. LOL
Cream cheese instead of butter?
