I have all my counters covered w/cookies to be decorated for teacher gift bouquets (thank God it's not for an order) and with all the rain/humidity, they turned soft and bendable overnight. Any ideas on what to do now? They're on sticks, and the sticks are going to come right off it's all so soft. I was thinking of popping them back in the oven for a few mins but I'm afraid they'll just reabsorb water right afterwards. I need to get decorating and I'm running out of time!

Believe me...I know your pain! This has happened to me before too. I "fixed" my cookies once by applying chocolate to the back of the cookies. It worked great! And who doesn't love an already delicious cookie with CHOCOLATE added to it! icon_biggrin.gif

On humid days, I run fans and my dehumidifier. I also bake them a little bit longer to help keep them a little crisper.

How about painting a thin coating of melted candy melts or chocolate on the back of them?
