How To Make Store-Bought Cookies Seem Freshly Baked
Most store-bought cookies taste far less satisfying than homemade ones, especially since they've been sitting in the store for a while and can be crunchy and hard. This doesn’t mean you have to avoid convenient packages of cookies, because it’s pretty easy to make your store-bought cookies taste much fresher at home.
All you have to do to bring a store-bought cookie back to life is pop it in the oven for one minute at 300 degrees Fahrenheit, and your cookie should already taste better than when you bought it. Not only will it be warm and smell delicious, but any chocolate chips in the cookies should be slightly melted, making for a gooier treat.
For an even quicker method to bring moisture back into your cookie, try wrapping it in a damp paper towel and microwaving it at 10-second intervals; the water will turn into steam, which will absorb into your treat. Still, you don't need to bother with the microwave if you just want a warm cookie, and a quick stint in the oven will do.
