Easy to use. Simply soak the Brown Sugar Cookie in clean water for 20-minutes, pat dry, and place it in with items in an airtight container. The absorbed water will release slowly to help keep items moist longer. Should items begin to harden, just remove Brown Sugar Cookie and repeat the soaking process. Use after soaking to soften and maintain moisture in brown sugar, granulated sugar, sugar in the raw, turbinado sugar, and sugar substitutes, baked goods, cakes, cookies, marshmallows, even dried fruit. Or, use it dry without soaking to absorb moisture and keep spices, salt, crackers, pretzels and chips dry and crispy. Made in the USA from specially fired terracotta clay, Mrs. Anderson’s Brown Sugar Cookie is food safe and reusable, over and over again. Rinse with clean water only. Do not use soap as it could leave a trace taste or scent.
