Hi all...this is a really dumb newbie question, but one I can't seem to find a good answer to! What is the "secret" to nice, soft cookies...be it chocolate chip, sugar, or whatever? I've used butter, and shortening, and I seem to not end up with soft cookies. I know you can put bread in with cookies to help keep them soft, but how do you start out soft? I know this sounds goofy, and probably somewhere here there is discussion about this, but I just want a soft cookie that stays soft and chewy! I have a great recipe for some huge CC cookies, and follow the recipe to the t, but they don't come out like my co-worker's (who gave me the recipe)Thanks for all your help!
