Almond Cookie Shells For Ice Cream

It takes some practice to get the knack of molding these thin, crisp cookies. They make a delightful "bowl" for ice cream or sorbets. These cookies can also be cooled curved over a rolling pin for tuiles, or tile-shaped cookies.

Courses: Dessert
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 tablespoon 15mlSoft butter - mixed with
1 tablespoon 15mlFlour - for coating pan
2   Egg whites
1/4 cup 59mlMilk
1 teaspoon 5mlVanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon 0.6mlSalt
4 tablespoons 60mlUnsalted butter - (1/2 stick) - melted
1 cup 198g / 7ozConfectioners' sugar - sifted
3/4 cup 46g / 1.6ozAll-purpose flour - sifted
3/4 cup 69g / 2.4ozSliced almonds

Recipe Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine the tablespoon each butter and flour to make a paste. Spread some over a cookie sheet and set aside.

Combine egg whites, milk, vanilla and salt and let sit until room temperature.  (You can speed the process by slightly warming mixture over a pan of hot water.)

Add melted butter to egg white mixture. Whisk in sugar until evenly blended.  Add flour and whisk until smooth.

Spoon 1 1/2 tablespoons batter per cookie onto prepared cookie sheet.  Allow six inches for spreading; each sheet will hold 3 cookies. With a spatula, spread each blob of batter out to form a thin 5-inch circle, leaving about an inch between cookies. Scatter some almonds over batter.

Bake about three to five minutes, until lightly golden all over. Slide a long spatula under each cookie, carefully lift off and immediately place cookie over an inverted coffee cup or custard cup. Cover with a dry cloth and press down to mold into a fluted shell. Repeat with other cookies. Shells will stiffen in 1 to 2 minutes.

Recoat baking sheet and repeat spreading, baking, and molding process until all cookies are baked. Serve immediately or store in airtight tins.
