Cookie Cups with Lemon Thyme-Scented Berry Compote
Crisp wafers filled with just-picked berries and ice cream make an elegant dessert. Lemon thyme leaves give the compote a unique fragrance; whole sprigs make a lovely garnish. This is a special-occasion dessert, but you can simplify it by omitting the cookie cups: the compote is delicious over ice cream or sorbet.
Make Ahead Tip: The cookies will keep in an airtight container for up to 4 days. If cookies soften, crisp in a 325°F oven for about 5 minutes.
Tip: The cookies are pliable only while hot, so work quickly. Have a wide metal spatula and two 12-ounce custard cups (or similar bowls) ready before baking.
