I have to bake gingerbread cookies for my son's Xmas party at school but I'll have to bake them one day, decorate the next day and package them the third day.There is no any way to do all that just in one day.I used Wilton's recipe for Grandma's gingerbread cookies last year but they turned kind of hard.Any suggestions for softer cookies recipe or how to keep them soft for 3 days?I just know about a slice of apple in the cookie container.Is it working?
Here's a thread that has lots of gingerbread cookie recipes:
I was told to put a slice of bread in a container and it will soften the hardest cookies, including oreos. That may help.
I was going to suggest what ksmith said. I have a friend who puts the bread in a plastic bag with holes poked in it and puts it in her cookie tin.
A tip I learned the hard way, never use a papertowel or napkin to line the cookie container. Dries them out very quickly!
Great tip! I just learned something new!
