  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place about 2 teaspoons of Parmesan cheese onto a silicone sheet or baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and gently spread the cheese out into a circle about 2 inches in diameter. Spread more circles of cheese onto the baking sheet, keeping them at least 1 inch apart.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Watch carefully to avoid burning. Remove from the oven, and let cool on the sheets until warm; while still warm, drape the wafers over a small bowl or other container. Let cool. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.

Fixes for when I messed up: I didn't have parchment, so I just used the cookie sheet. Turned out OK. Oily, but OK. When I tried to move them from the pan to the molds (I was using an upside-down...

I was terribly diappointed in the outcome. I ended up just doing flat circles after several failed attempts at baskets. The taste was wonderful but the recipe yields no where near 24 baskets. ...

I love these! I've often made them as crisps for salad garnishes, but never thought of forming them into a basket. I used them to hold Parmesan Spinach Balls as an appetizer at a dinner party ...

I made these as round crisps to use as garnish on salad, so I left them flat after cooking. It was a night for Spanish tapas, so I used manchego cheese instead of parmesan (slightly softer and l...

These were fun to make. I remember in a restaurant making just small circles for I think salad. But, I wanted to try the bowl idea. I thought a 2" circle sounded kind of small. So, I used a piec...

Another great way to serve parmesan. Try grating on top red and green peppercorns - not too fine, not too coarse - just before baking the parmesan. The flavors blend very well and they look lik...

so easy, but such a show stopper - I filled with a spinach strawberry salad with red onion, one crouton, rapspberry vinagrette and topped it with candied almond chunks! Delish!

What a great idea!!! These are fun, whimsical, and cute ;) I filled mine with finely chopped arugula, chopped tomato, chopped radishes, crumbled bacon and drizzled with olive oil and balsamic ...

So easy and yummy! These make for a great presentation! I used asiago and they turned out delicious.

Simple recipe. I did mine in an 8 inch non stick pan. Only recommendation I can give is don't make them so thick. I think I did mine too thick. Although it worked, formed into basket shape, t...
