I got this from Cooking.com. I haven't tried it yet, but thought that they look really impressive and gorgeous. You may serve ice cream, sorbet etc. in it. It's a perfect way to dress up your dessert.

- 6Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto the buttered baking sheet, leaving at least 3 inches on all sides to allow room for spreading (no more than 4 shells on the sheet).

- 9Using a thin metal spatula, lift the still-soft rounds from the baking sheet and drape each over an inverted coffee cup.
- 10Let them cool completely, then carefully lift off the shells and set aside.
- 11Repeat process with the next half of the dough.
- 12Serving: Place the shells on small dessert plates, then fill with ice cream/sorbet of your choice and garnish with chocolate glaze, citrus zest, chopped toasted nuts etc.
- 13Serve immediately (The shells can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days).
