Frico cups (Giada de L)

Has anyone tried this recipe where she makes frico cups and uses it like a bowl for a salad? I've had frico in the past and always used it like a cracker. Last night I made it and tried to mold it, but wasn't able to. I followed the recipe exact, but the second I removed it from the cookie sheet and tried to mold it, it was already too hard to be formed and it shattered. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

  1. It has always worked for me. I used to do these for parties. You just have to move really fast. Did you use really good parm?

      No, I didn't use the really good parm. Could that be it? I swear, I can't move any faster than I did, so I know the speed isn't the problem.

    2. I make them all the time too. If they don't mold, it may be that you're waiting too long. Don't let them cool. If you don't move fast enough, thrown them back in the oven for a few seconds to get them warm and soft again.
