How Do You Make Ice Cream Cones? There is no daydream better than a freshly baked ice cream cone topped with the finest vanilla bean ice cream and sprinkles. This is certainly a summer time favorite in many different communities, and with the right tools, it can be an obtainable summer time favorite in your community as well! All you need to do is follow these few simple steps to make that delicious homemade ice cream cone. First, you will need to gather your ingredients. This includes onehalf cup of finely ground almonds, onefourth of a cup of allpurpose flour, onehalf of a cup of confectioner’s sugar, one fourth of a teaspoon of salt, two large egg whites (no yolks), onefourth of a teaspoon of almond extract, onehalf of a teaspoon of water, and five tablespoons of unsalted, melted butter. Next, you will need to gather your equipment. This includes one baking sheet, one foam cone from any local crafts store, and parchment paper. Then, you will need to cut a strip of the parchment paper which equals the height as the craft cone. Next, heat your oven to 300 degrees while coating a large, heavy baking sheet with cooking spray and/or lined parchment paper. Using a food processor, get your almonds as finely ground as possible. Then, sift in your flour, sugar, and salt. In another bowl, you will need to whisk together the egg whites and almond extract. This step is followed by the adding of the butter and the flour. If the mixture is too runny once it has been blended, you may need to refrigerate it for a few minutes. Take a heaping tablespoon of your mixture and slap it onto the baking sheet. Smooth your batter heap with the back of a spoon until it looks like a circle with a 6inch diameter. Put the baking tray into the oven, preferably the middle of the oven, and then flip the cone mixture halfway into the baketime. The total baketime should only be about 8 to 10 minutes long. If your dish is really high or heavy, it may take up to 20 minutes to fully cook. The best thing to do is keep an eye on your cones. Once a sufficient amount of conebaking time has passed, remove the tray from the oven. Use your spatula to loosen the cookie from the baking sheet. Once freed, you will need to roll up the cookie into a coneshape; make sure that the seam is facing down. Once you have your cone rolled, stick it back in the oven for 15 to 30 seconds so that it can harden into the coneshape. When the cone is complete, the very last step is to buy your favorite type of ice cream and plop it atop the newly created cone. You can add sprinkles or syrup or any other topping that you like. It will surely be a treat that will be raved about by your friends and family!
