Notes from Lisa
I kept a few on the counter for up to four days and they were ok. I also put a few in the fridge to keep them longer and they will stiffen up a bit...they are pretty soft otherwise.
When I created this recipe, I was avoiding starch but adding a tablespoon or so of arrowroot starch may help firm them up.
