    Parmesan Cheese Baskets: 1. Wrap the outside of an inverted 6-inch terra-cotta pot in aluminum foil. Coat foil with vegetable cooking spray. 2. Place a 12-inch square of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Spread 1⁄2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese onto the parchment paper, patting it into an 81⁄2-inch circle. (Note: Don't use grated cheese in this recipe--only shredded will work.) 3. Bake at 375° for 5 to 7 minutes or until pale gold in color. Remove from oven, and let cool 10 seconds. 4. Carefully lift the parchment paper off the baking sheet. Working quickly, invert the Parmesan circle over the prepared pot. Carefully remove the parchment from the Parmesan circle. (Reserve the parchment to use again.) 5. Gently press the cheese over inverted pot into desired bowl shape. (Tip: If the cheese circle is too hot, it will slide down the pot, causing small tears. If this happens, gently press the cheese together to seal any large gaps.) Cool basket completely (about 5 minutes), and remove from pot. Repeat to create as many baskets as you need.

    Help, I cannot seem to find directions for Parmesan Baskets. One review said Southern Living April 2006 p. 226, but have been unable to pull this up. If anyone has this recipe, please provide. Thanks I really want to try this, sounds great for summer.

    If you still haven't got the directions for the Parmesan baskets, here is how to get it. Go to the Southern living home page...then look to get the archive books. Put April 2006 in the search. There will be a side index with " Favorite Finger Sandwiches for a Luncheon". At the end of the receipies, there is the receipy for the baskets. Good luck
