Years ago I saw an article in Cuisine At Home showing a beautiful lacey basket made out of parmesan cheese. I have kept magazine for years and never got around to trying it until today. After doing some research on the internet I saw that others had also tried their hand at it.

The method was to sprinkle shredded parmesan cheese on a baking sheet and putting it in a 325 degree F oven for a few minutes. After making a mess and going through quite a bit of cheese, I pulled out the article and followed their suggestion.

In a small skillet over medium-high, sprinkle the shredded cheese into a disk shape making sure to keep the cheese light around the edges so it looks lacey. When the cheese is bubbly in the center and thedisk is golden on the underside (about two minutes), using a rubber spatula and your fingers, slide it off the pan and quickly drape it over a spice jar, golden side down. Press to form a bowl.
These will keep for several hours.
