I don't know for sure, but I would be very surprised if you could not. I would think you would want to line the baking sheet with either a silpat or wax paper or umm I am blanking out on the other paper that is impregnated with silicone or something. I would turn the oven to the lowest temp you can get.

GB, I think you're thinking of parchment paper. That's what I'd use. I'd worry that wax paper would impart a "crayoney" taste.

Yes that is exactly what I was thinking. Thanks PA Baker! Yeah you are right, wax paper would be a poor choice!
