Parmesan Hearts

From that sheet of baked Parmesan yesterday came this heart. I also cut out a star. I tried to use a cookie cutter, but the Parm was too hard, so kitchen scissors did the trick. Sprinkle shredded Parm on a non-stick baking sheet and bake at 275 degrees until there is some brownness around the lacy edges. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Gently slide a spatula under the cheese and it should peel off in one piece :)

That turned out really well and it really adds to the presentation of the dish. One thing I like to do is while the cheese is still hot, I take and put it over an upturned glass and let it cool. Once cooled, it makes a great edible dish.
