Oven Method

  1. Oven method:

    Use a cookie sheet with parchment or wire racks. I'd place a spill guard on bottom of the oven. Bake at 180°-225° depending on your oven for 4-6 hours. Keep checking on them for your first batch and then make a note of how long it took on your recipe. Next time you make them you'll have all the information at hand. Or paw depending on how you look at it.

Dehydrator Method

  1. Place in dehydrator* and run according to your brands instructions.

  2. *I ran my dehydrator (for the 2nd round) at 165° for 3-4 hours.
