they have to be fully cooked and dry. if you cook pieces that are not the same size, i take the smaller ones off the pan and continue to rest until they are all crisp and dry. then i continue to air dry them on a cookie rack. if you put them in a bowl while they are still warm, they will get limp and soggy from the heat i suppose.

once i air dry them completely i can keep them in an air tight container for several days....not that they ever last that long!! they are delicious!!

if your pieces are really lacy leafy, make sure you spread them out as flat as possible so they crisp in the lacy bits to avoid limp soggy bits.
hope that helps
