VERY LITTLE is more disappointing than biting into a rock-solid cookie when you were expecting a sweet, gooey treat in your mouth. 

Luckily, there’s an “age-old” tip that can help cookies retain their moisture and freshness – and a baking expert revealed exactly how to do it.

“We don’t gatekeep over here and my dad has been using this cookie hack for as long as I can remember,” the expert said at the beginning of her video shared to the Tasty TikTok page.

“Biting into a rock-hard cookie is one of the worst things ever.

“Pop a piece of bread in your Tupperware and the next day all the water from that bread will be absorbed by the cookies, so when you bite into your cookies and you pull [them] apart, [they’ll] be nice, soft, and chewy just like [they were] baked yesterday,” she concluded.

If there are any skeptics out there, the hundreds of messages supporting the hack that flooded the video’s comment section might be enough to change their minds.

“That’s an age-old grandma hack,” one person with familiarity to the tip wrote.

“I'm 45 and have been doing this since I was a kid. It truly works,” someone with years of experience added.

“Been doing this for years!! Love it,” a third person exclaimed.

Not everyone was keen on the trick, though, as several users suggested simply baking the cookies so they’re slightly underdone when they come out of the oven. 

One person suggested heating a cookie in the microwave next to a cup of water to soften it up. 

Cookies aren’t the only food group that can benefit from science. 

Another expert previously shared exactly how she keeps her produce fresher longer.

"Never wash, always store your fruit and vegetables dirty, and wash them before using," she said. 

Leftover water on food can encourage mold to grow, which is why the expert advised against washing food until its’ ready to be eaten. 

"You get three times longer out of your food, spinach lasts me two to three weeks. 

"Celery and cucumbers last for me up to four weeks," they added.
