Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Mix cheese and cumin. Form six or eight piles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave plenty of room in between piles, or the cheese might melt together.
  2. Bake in the oven for 10–15 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling with golden brown patches – burned cheese doesn’t taste good. Let cool for 30 seconds.
  3. Place a rack over the sink.
  4. Carefully, place the cheese platelets on the rack.
  5. Let cool and serve with a filling of your choice.

    You place a baking rack (oven rack) over the sink and lay the cheese circles over the rungs of the rack.
  3. Amy
    You can also shape the shells on the edge of a bowl.

    The "rack" that they refer to is like the shelves inside your oven (a metal grill) and they are suggesting that you drape the fried cheese over that while it is still soft and let it cool and harden into a taco shape.
  5. Gentiann
    you can also place them on a rolling pin, a broom stick or any other cylindrical object.
