Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Now
that Thanksgiving is over we begin in full swing preparing
for Christmas. Here is another cookie that is a special
I love creating foods for Pink Saturday.
These Strawberry Cream Horns are a perfect
holiday or special event cookie.
These little delicacies are an extra special cookie for
when you want something out of the ordinary. A crisp
outer sugar cookie shell painted inside with chocolate
and filled with strawberry cream. They are small
two bite cookies that always draw a crowd.
Strawberry Cream Horns Recipe
1/4 C. melted butter
1/2 C. sugar
2/3 C. flour
1/8 tsp. salt
1/3 C. milk
1/2 tsp. almond flavor
1 C. semi-sweet chips
1 tsp. vegetable oil
1 1/2 C. heavy whipping cream
1 C. chopped fresh strawberries, raspberries or
a combination of both ( I used both)
1/2 C. powdered sugar
Lightly mix the egg, then add the butter and sugar. Mix with
a whisk. Whisk in the flour and salt and end with the milk and
Heat a non-stick griddle to 300 degrees. Using scant
tablespoon of batter, spread out into about a 3 inch circle.
Make the batter as thin as possible. Let cook until golden
then flip over and let cook about 1 minute.
While still hot form into a cone around a cone shaped
form, letting cool until it holds its shape. Only do about
3 at a time.
Melt the chocolate chips with the oil in the microwave by heating
30 seconds, then stir whether it looks like it needs it or not.
Heat in 30 second increments, stirring each time so as not
to scorch. At the end, let the heat of the chocolate finish
melting the remaining chips, stirring until smooth. Paint the
inside of the cooled cones with the chocolate, dipping the
tops in the chocolate. Put in the fridge to set the chocolate.
Put the fruit in the blender or food processor and puree.
Press through a sieve to remove the seeds. You should
have a scant 1/2 C. puree.
Whip the cream until soft peaks form, then add the powdered
sugar until firm peaks. By hand, blend in the puree.
Place the whipped cream in a pastry bag with a large star tip.
Pipe into the cones. Refrigerate.
Makes about 24.
Take one and enjoy it during your holiday preparations.
