  4. . BAKE them for the initial 15 minutes. Then, remove the pan from the oven to gently flip them over for the rest of the 10 minutes baking.
  5. . Note: if not using them in another recipe right away, have them come to room temperature on the pan. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Keeps up to 5 days.
