Mom's Famous Pumpkin Biscotti (For Dogs!)

READY IN: 1hr 55mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

This is what Delicious Living says: "These delicious cookies are a favorite of the many dogs that visit the Licks and Wags Dog Bakery. They provide a hard, crunchy texture that helps maintain healthy teeth." Haven't tried these yet, but just got a puppy, so intend to soon. The recipe only says, "Makes 1 lb".

Have a question? When these are freshly made they are crunchy, but as soon as I put them in a bag for storage they lose their crunchiness . How can I avoid this? I want them to stay crunchier as I feel that is better for clean teeth.
