Recipe Notes

f you want the crust to be more on the crispy side, then I would cook them the full 30 minutes and, depending on your oven, you may need to cook them a few minutes longer. It’s definitely a personal preference here. I’ve baked mine for 25 minutes before for a softer crust, but I’ve also baked them longer for a bit crisper, firmer crust. Either way, they are fabulous!
