Puff Pastry Dessert Cones
Prep: 15 minutes Cook: 15 minutes
1/2 (17.3-oz.) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Sanding sugar, for topping (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat.
Wrap the sugar cones with foil so that they are completely covered then spray them with cooking spray.
Unwrap the puff pastry onto a lightly floured work surface then using a sharp knife or pizza wheel, cut it into 1/2-inch strips.
Starting at the bottom of the cone, wrap the strips upward, slightly overlapping each strip of puff pastry and securing the ends in place until you reach the top of the cone. Arrange the cones on a baking sheet then brush them with the egg and sprinkle them with the sanding sugar (optional).
Bake the cones for about 15 minutes or until they are golden brown and puffed. Remove them from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes before carefully removing the cones. Once the puff pastry cones have cooled completely, fill them with whipped cream, mousse or ice cream.
