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.

    How do you shape the shells?

    You place a baking rack (oven rack) over the sink and lay the cheese circles over the rungs of the rack.

    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.

    you can also place them on a rolling pin, a broom stick or any other cylindrical object.

    These work great in the microwave, I just put some parchment paper on a plate, then sprinkle the cheese in a circle. I do about 40-50 seconds, just until the cheese starts to brown a bit. Take it out of the microwave, wait a few seconds for the cheese to cool a bit, then you can easily peel it off the parchment paper and form into any shape you want. The shells end up softer (almost like a tortilla) if you stop cooking them before they start to brown. Go longer and they get nice and crispy, almost exactly like a hard shell taco.
