Works for Me Wednesday

Here's my tip...(this is a great one too)! Ok, have you ever baked homemade cookies and they become hard and crunchy in, what seems like, 5 minutes later? Well, just put them in a container with a piece of bread (any bread will do), and voila! You will have soft chewy cookies! This is a great trick because it is frustrating to spend all that time baking and the result; mediocre cookies! This will solve your "crunchy cookie problems"! You can also put piece of bread in your bag of brown sugar and it will keep it from getting hard also! Happy baking!

That's a great tip. Also, if you take your cookie recipe and look at however much butter OR Crisco it calls for and instead use 1/2 butter AND 1/2 Crisco, you're cookies will plump up nicely and stay soft longer. My Mom taught me that trick and it always works!
