What in the world is going on here. My wife made this exact recipe probably 10+ times when we lived in Ohio. She’s made it 4 times since we moved to Virginia and for some reason the cookies are ROCK hard by the next day no matter how we store them. In Ohio they were always nice and soft and chewy for the week after making them. We cannot for the life of us figure out what she is doing wrong now. Here is the recipe:
1 cup Sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1.5 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
They taste real good and are nice and chewy and chocolatey the night she makes them but by the next day they are barely edible. She cools the cookies on cooling racks after taking them off the cookie sheet. Once cool they go into a ziploc or tupperware. Nothing exotic. And this worked perfectly in Ohio. But they are always ROCK hard by the next day.
Anyone see where this is going wrong?
(We really like the flavor of the cookies and aren’t trying to change the recipe to make them taste different)
