You can use a piping bag (or a plastic zip bag with corner snipped off), to pipe 1 inch cookies onto parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 1 and 1/2 hours, rotating baking sheets halfway through. Turn off oven and let cookies sit for a few hours until completely dried. These keep for a few weeks if stored in a sealed container.
