By no means am I a baker. All of my cakes come from a box. icon_sad.gif I want to make cookies but everytime I do, I might get them right in the oven, but when it comes to cooling and storing them, I end up with a pretty batch of hard cookies. icon_cry.gif What Am I Doing Wrong??????

You're probably cooking them a bit too much. Also, I'm know you're not suppose to, but I put my cookies in the containers when they are still warm...not hot, just warm. They're soft all the time.

You can add a slice of bread to your container when storing your cookies, it will help soften them if they are hard or just keep them soft.

Remember, if your cookies look DONE in the oven, they're already TOO DONE. I take my out a little tiny bit early and let them set on the pan for about 5 minutes. The insides will continue to cook on the hot pan!! Good Luck
