During the holidays I spent a lot of time traveling to visit friends and family. As you can imagine, these casual gatherings typically involved food or some sort of snacking. It got me thinking how nice it would be to compile a list of recipes for simple snacks and appetizers that can be thrown together at the last minute. Over the next few months a lot of people will be gathering their friends and family to watch the game or their favorite award show – inevitably, everyone will be snacking. Throughout January, I will be featuring several snacks and appetizers that will be the perfect treat for your next get together.
Parmesan tuiles are melt-in-the-mouth wafers that are ridiculously easy to make and taste great either on their own or dunked into a smooth dip. They can be stored in an airtight container for several days.
Makes about 10
- 1 1/3 cups fresh Parmesan cheese, grated
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Spoon small mounds of cheese on the baking sheets and flatten them into rounds using the back of the spoon. Be sure to leave plenty of room between each mound, as the cheese will spread when it melts.
Bake the Parmesan for about 5 minutes, until golden. Remove from the oven and leave on the baking sheets for a minute or so, to firm up. Using a spatula, remove the tuiles carefully from the paper, and curl them over a rolling pin until set. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
