How to dehydrate cookies
At this stage get your dehydrator trays out and lined with the teflex then use a large spoon to measure out equal sized round balls onto the trays then press down with your fingers to form a cookie.
Set your dehydrator for 55 degrees celcius then dehydrate for 20-24 hours or until they are nice and chewy and no longer wet. Store the dehydrated cookies in container or well sealed bag in the fridge. As these cookies are dehydrated they should last weeks if you don't eat them all!!
