Ice Cream Cups

These cups are made on a pizzelle iron, which is available at cookware stores and looks like a flat, decorative waffle iron.

  • yield: Makes 48 cups

Ingredients

  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • Vegetable oil cooking spray, for iron
  • 2 pints ice cream or sorbet, for serving

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Whisk egg whites in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Add salt and 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar, and whisk until stiff peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in vanilla and remaining 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar until incorporated. Fold in flour and butter until well combined.

  2. Step 2

    Heat a pizzelle iron according to manufacturer's instructions. Coat with cooking spray, place 1 teaspoon batter on the iron, and close cover. Cook until steam subsides and wafer is golden brown, about 1 minute. Remove wafer with an offset spatula. Working quickly, place the wafer in a mini muffin tin and gently push down the center to form a cup. (The wafer will cool and harden almost immediately.) Repeat with remaining batter. Let cool completely. (Wafers can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.)

  3. Step 3

    Fill wafers with 1-inch scoops of ice cream or sorbet, and serve immediately.
