Hi Debbie! Place dough on wheat floured surface and roll with wheat floured rolling pin. Use cookie cutters to create bone shapes, place on pan until dough is gone. Cooking time varies in recipe according to preferred crisp level. Enjoy!
if they are in an air tight glass jar…how long can the be kept on a counter where it is cool
Two weeks, Dennise 🙂
How long can you leave these out, in an airtight container (not in the fridge), before they go bad? Or should you always keep them refrigerated?
Less than a week (:
