Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons butter or magarine, melted
2 tablespoons light-color corn syrup
1/3 cup ground almonds
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
Vanilla frozen yogurt
Fresh mint (optional)


For baskets, preheat oven to *350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with foil.

Grease the foil; set aside.

Stir together the brown sugar, butter or margarine, and corn syrup in a medium bowl.

Stir in almonds and flour until combined.

Drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheet, baking only 2 or 3 at a time. Spread each to about 3 inches in diameter. (You should end up with 8 portions.)

Bake in the preheated oven for 6 to 8 minutes or until bubbly and deep golden brown.

Let stand 1 to 2 minutes or until set but still pliable.

Quickly shape into baskets by placing each inside a 6-ounce custard cup.

Cool completely in cups. (Do not bake more shells at a time than you have custard cups for them.)

To serve, fill almond baskets .

Top each with a small scoop of frozen yogurt.

If desired, garnish with mint.

Serve immeditely.

Make-ahead tip: Prepare the cookie baskets up to 1 week ahead and store in an

airtight container.
