So you made a big batch of Christmas Cookies from Aunt Minnie's recipe?
But the big batch translated into a humongous batch and, though everyone
went after them gleefully, there still was an industrial strength of leftover
Aunt Minnie's Christmas Cookies. . .not so great. . .they got hard. . .their
nice, soft chewy texture was gone. . .
Despair not. . .a sheet of paper towel folded in half, then half again
(so it is one fourth as large as it was originally), and a few drops of
cold tap water will rejuvenate that "nice, soft, chewy" texture if you
simply place the cookie in the middle of the fold and microwave the whole
works for like 20 seconds.
For a whole plate of cookeis, simply cover them with a single (or double)
sheet of paper towel and follow the above procedure.
The microwaving process renders the cookies nice and warm, too--like
they are just out of the oven.
