Are you tired of eating rock-hard cookies? Do you want to have melt-in-your-mouth cookies? There are a couple of tricks you can try to get hard cookies soft and chewy again.

Using a Piece of Bread

  1. Obtain a cookie jar or a container that has a lid. Then make sure you like cookies!
  2. Put a piece of fresh white bread on the bottom of the container. Then, put the cookies on top of the bread.
    • If you don’t have a piece of white bread, you can use a damp paper towel instead. Just wrap the paper towel in aluminum foil, poke some holes in the foil, and place the foil in the container with the cookies.
  3. Close the container and keep it closed for at least 24 hours. This will give the cookies enough time to absorb moisture from the bread so they soften.
  4. Try the cookies later. When you open the container the next day the cookies will be soft and chewy.

Reheating the Cookies

  1. Wet a paper towel and squeeze out the excess water. Make sure the paper towel is damp but not soaking wet so your cookies don’t end up too soggy.
  2. Wrap the cookies you want to soften in the paper towel. If you’re reheating a lot of cookies, you may need to use more than one paper towel.
    • You can also place the cookies on a plate and then cover them with the damp paper towel. Either way will work!
  3. Microwave the cookies for 15-20 seconds. The cookies will absorb some of the moisture from the damp paper towel and become softer as they heat up.
  4. Unwrap the cookies and try one. If they’re still not soft enough, try re-wrapping them with another damp paper towel and microwaving them again.


  • If they are not soft enough, just put in 2 pieces of bread the next time.
  • Dunk the cookies in milk to soften them up before eating.
