Default Sugar Cookies

I'm not sure if anyone has ever asked this question before but I have to ask
it. I've tried making sugar cookies before which I absolutely love but I
have one problem. How do I get my cookies to stay soft. That's the best part
about a sugar cookie, that it's soft. Please help me, thanks in advance for
the help

As soon as they're cool, seal them tightly in Tupperware or something
similar. You might also want to add half an apple or a slice or two of
fresh bread to the container.

Without seeing the recipe it would be hard to advise you. The term "sugar
cookie" is used for a wide number of item from the rolled cookies that
people decorate for Christmas to drop cookies that some people call "tea
cakes."

Generally, using shortening instead of butter will make you cookies softer.
An easy way to make cookies soft is to underbake them. As has been
mentioned, how you store them will influence the texture.

Default Sugar Cookies

I guess I'm just a weird one...am I the only one on this earth who likes my
cookies crunchy? No offense to the soft cookie lovers, but...to me
anyway...soft cookies taste like they're not baked all the way. (No, I
don't like raw cookie dough, either!!! I know, I should be banished for
eternity!) The only time I like a soft cookie is when it is soaked with
milk or tea!

Well Jenn. Make Biscotties or Cantuccinis. Or bake your cookies crunchy.

I like them crunchy too.

I try not to eat too many cookies, but I always leave one sheet in for a
little bit longer and make them good and crispy for me! Those NEVER get put
in the container with the pieces of bread! Love Biscotties, too! Thanks
for letting me know I'm not alone, though!
Jenn.
