Specialty Recipe

Raspberry and Mango Sorbets with Almond Tuille Baskets

Ingredients - Mango Sorbet
4 cups pureed and strained mango
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
Ingredients - Raspberry Sorbet
4 cups pureed and strained raspberries
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
Ingredients - Almond Cookies
1 cup blanched almonds
3/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 Tablespoons water

Mango Sorbet: In a 3-quart non-reactive saucepan with a heavy bottom, bring the sugar and water to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and let cool. Stir in the mango puree and freeze in an ice cream maker, according to the manufacturer's directions.

Raspberry Sorbet: Repeat instructions for the mango sorbet. The best way to strain the seeds and pulp is to use a chinois or china cap, a conical strainer with a very fine mesh. This item may be found inn a gourmet cookware shop.

Almond Cookies: In a food processor fitted with a steel blade, combine the almonds, sugar, and flour, and process using the pulse to chop the nuts. Add the water and process to blend until just slightly chunky. Transfer the batter to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate for at least 24 hours.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line several baking sheets with parchment and grease the parchment. Allowing 10 inches between each cookie, spoon approximately 2 Tablespoons of the batter to form each cookie. Bake until they just start to brown. As soon as they start to brown, remove from the oven, peel from the parchment, and lay quickly over inverted tea cups, gently pressing the sides to form a cup or basket shape. Lift off when cool and store in a tin until ready to serve.

To serve, place each cookie on a well-chilled dessert plate. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out a portion of each sorbet into the basket. Garnish with fresh berries and edible garden flowers.
