How do I prevent sugar cookies from hardening?  

I made the following recipe:,1946,FOOD_9936_25190_PRINT-RECIPE-FULL-PAGE,00.html

I did substitute semisweet chocolate instead of unsweetened, otherwise
I followed the recipe as written.  The cookies tasted great after
cooling for a few minutes, and also later that evening (~4 hrs).  I
placed them in an airtight container.  By the next evening, they were
hard as rock.

How do I prevent these cookies from becoming too hard to eat?

I've heard about putting an apple or bread slice in the
container....I'm looking for additional suggestions.
There is no answer at this time.
