Using a pastry bag, I piped the dough onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. I used a Wilton 1M star tip. I found this method easier, quicker, and less messy than dropping the dough onto the pan with a spoon. The shape of the shells is also attractive. I alo used the same tip to pipe the filling inside of the shells. For extra flavor, I added 2 tsp. almond extract to the filling.
