Homemade ice cream cones: the quick and easy recipe for thin and crunchy waffles

I homemade ice cream cones are a real treat to bring to the table, in combination with scoops of ice cream of your favorite flavor, when you want a dessert healthy and genuine, 100% home made. They are prepared without the aid of any particular equipment, but simply with eggs, flour, milk, butter, sugar and a drop of vanilla essence to perfume everything.

Once a batter smooth and free of lumps, this is poured, a ladle at a time, on a hot non-stick pan and left to cook on both sides, until golden brown (not a minute more). The puff pastry disc obtained, it will then be rolled while still boiling like a cone, decorated as desired with melted chocolate, sprinkles of sugar and chopped hazelnuts, and then left to cool completely. You will thus obtain very crunchy waffles to serve for the snack of children, on the occasion of a party or a special occasion, or to delight guests at the end of the meal.

For the success of the recipe it is essential to roll out the batter to a very thin layer and roll up the cones as soon as they are removed from the heat: in this way they will be soft, elastic and easily take shape. Keep them still for 1-2 minutes, sealing the tip and the base part with your fingers and, only after they have hardened, proceed to make the others. For an even more precise result, you can pack the pods with a special wooden cone. Just put it in the center of the dough, overlap the two edges by tightening them at the tip, and that’s it.

If you wish you can decorate them as we did or enjoy them naturally, or dip the ends in White chocolate melted and chopped pistachios. Once done, don’t forget the cones in the air, but keep them inside tin boxes or in an airtight container: they will remain fragrant for days.
