Parmesan Cheese Bowls

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 C. Shredded Parmesan Cheese

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with four square pieces of parchment paper.
  2. Sprinkle shredded parmesan cheese on each sheet of parchment to create thin 4-inch rounds, about 3-4 Tbsp. each.
  3. Overturn 4 small bowls (to be used as molds) onto a work surface.
  4. Toast the parmesan rounds in the oven on the center rack for 10 minutes, until bubbly and just browned.
  5. Allow the parmesan rounds to cool just slightly before flipping the cheese (and parchment) over the molds and quickly shaping them.
  6. Remove the parchment paper from the rounds and allow them to set at room temperature.
  7. Once set, remove the cheese bowls from the molds.
