  • 2 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Pudding, mousse or ice cream
  • Fresh fruit


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Draw two 6-in. circles on paper; set aside. In a small bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form. Beat in the butter and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour until smooth.
  2. Spoon 2 tablespoons of batter over each parchment circle; spread with the back of a spoon to cover circle. Bake at 350° for 8-9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  3. Remove from the paper with a metal spatula and immediately place each over an inverted 6-oz. custard cup or small bowl; shape around cup. Repeat with remaining batter to make 6 more shells (parchment can be reused). Fill with pudding and fruit.
