Homemade Ice Cream Cones Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
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'm probably going to experiment a little bit to see if I can get a more consistent product. The taste is great, but I'd like to make the texture perfect too. Because I burned the first one, I turned the heat way down. I have an electric range, though, and it can be difficult to get good control. I ended up keeping the heat just a bit below medium to keep mine from burning, but they were still soft. I'll post again if I can get this to be perfect. Worth it, though; very tasty (even if a little greasy). My kids loved them.

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. However... they tasted very good. Eveyone LOVED them and didn't seem to mind the "non" crispy shell. Maybe I will try again and bake them to get them to crisp up.

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 browning faster. They must be shaped quickly so they don't crack in the process.

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 browned evenly. It must get brown in order to dry hard. Flip it and press down on it again until it's nice and brown on both sides. Then, either shape it into a cone or put in in a small bowl so it's like a little cup. This was a fun recipe Thanx!

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.
