The Amish Secret For Keeping Cookies Fresh
You might be curious as to how the Amish freshly preserve food without the use of technology. However, the Amish have other ways to store food items, and when it comes to cookies specifically, the answer is rather simple.
Most of you probably know that an air-tight container is the best way to prevent foods from drying out. But the Amish keep cookies fresh for longer by adding a small piece of bread inside the container. If cookies have gotten too crunchy, it can also help soften them up.
The cookies will absorb moisture from the slice of bread, keeping them soft but you should use a neutral bread type to prevent flavor transfer. Additionally, use only a small amount of bread at once because an excessive amount of bread can turn cookies mushy.
