Homemade Ice Cream Cones

Mal 2

"These cones are in between a crepe and store-bought sugar cones. They're a huge hit with all my friends! If you have extras, store them in an airtight container, unroll, and re-crisp in a 400 degrees F oven."

  1. Whisk together the eggs and sugar in a large bowl until frothy. Whisk in the butter, milk and vanilla. Gradually whisk in the flour and salt until smooth. The batter should be thin; you can stir in more milk if needed.
  2. Heat a small skillet or griddle over medium heat. Brush the pan lightly with oil. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet and turn to spread out the batter into a thin circle. When the underside is golden brown, flip over and cook until golden on the other side. Remove from the pan and form into a cone while it's hot, squeezing the end to seal. Place on a wire rack to cool and harden completely. Repeat with the remaining batter.

YUM! The first cone I made didn't dry hard, so the next one, I made sure the heat was on medium-low and when the cone was slightly brown, I flipped it and pressed on it with my spatula so it bro...

My whole family enjoyed these cones. Mine turned out crispy. It takes quite a while to get the cones evenly browned. Next time I think I'll try it with a weight or baking them to get even bro...

I had similar problems as other reviewers getting these to firm up. I suspect it has to do with the heat, but that's tricky; too low and it stays soft, too high and it burns (ask me how I know)...

I don't have a waffle griddle so my waffle bowls were not gorgeous, but the recipe did work out good. I used a flat griddle on medium-low heat and allowed them to slowly brown. They were a littl...

These cones are EXCELLENT! I used a Chef's Choice Waffle Cone Express grill to make them. I do believe using a waffle grill of some type makes these cones perfect. (They won't need flipping) ...

I made this gluten free by using white rice flour. Yum! Though it only crisped on the edges & it didn't stick together well (expected, with the lack of wheat gluten), it definately delivered t...

My cones never got crispy, or even hard enough for using. They tasted really good though. I think I might use this recipe in a round waffle iron. I think that might work better.

I could not get these to crisp up. After cooking them, I put them in 1 cup custard cups and let them sit. When I took them out, they did not retain their shape very well..kind of flimsy. Howe...

The end product was tasty, but the recipe could use a couple tweaks to get the crispiness everyone expects in a waffle-cone. First of all, the recipe says it makes 8 cones, but it's actually cl...
