    Take out of the oven and place on a wire cooling rack...lower the oven to 325'...once cooled place on a clean cutting board and cut the logs into 1 inch diagonal pieces and lay them back onto the cookie sheet and bake for another 7 - 8 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Put on a wire cooling rack & cool completley....can be stored in an air tight container on the counter for about 1 week....
