       Title: Tortilla Baskets
  Categories: Breads
       Yield: 1 servings
  
            For each basket:
       1    9 inch flour tortilla
            Vegetable oil for brushing
            -tortillas
       1    Brioche pan
  
   Recipe by: The Washington Post 11/6/96 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
   Lightly spray the brioche pan with vegetable spray, or brush it lightly
   with vegetable oil. Also lightly brush both sides of the tortilla with the
   oil and gently fit it into the pan, pressing it into the pan’s scalloped
   sides. Bake the tortilla for about 20 minutes, or until the edges are
   golden and the tortilla is crisp. Use as a server for salad or crudites or
   guacamole or chips or . . . well, you get the idea. (Makes 1 basket).
   
   You can use 9-inch tortillas or 6-inch tortillas, depending on how you want
   to fill them. A 6-inch tortilla makes a small appetizer-sized basket, while
   the 9-inch is more substantial. My brioche pan has a 4-cup capacity and
   works well with the 9-inch tortilla. Note: Be patient when first fitting
   the tortilla into the brioche pan -- brioche sides are more densely
   scalloped than the gadget I saw advertised.
