Remove from heat. Using tongs, remove basil leaves to plate. Gently open leaves and coat on both sides with sugar. Place basil leaves on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated 200°F oven 5 minutes or until crisp.
Test Kitchen Tips:
• Passion fruit concentrate is a liquid (not frozen) concentrate that can be found in Latin markets or the Latin aisle of some supermarkets. It should not be confused with passion fruit juice or nectar.
• Tortes can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and store in refrigerator. To reheat, place ramekins in microwave. Microwave on MEDIUM (50% power) for 2 to 3 minutes. Unmold as directed.
