Are you a cone or a cup kind of ice cream eater? I must admit, I’ve been a cup person most of my life. The neat freak in me has never enjoyed the drippy mess that comes if you dawdle while eating your ice cream cone, so a cup it usually is. Ben, however, has been ordering cones since we first started dating (13 years ago!) At first I thought he was kind of a nut but then after sneaking a few bites I started to see his point. The crispy, crunchy cone just goes with ice cream. Plus, I don’t really dawdle while eating my ice cream anymore ;) Waffle cones are my true favorite but since I don’t know of a way to make those at home without a waffle cone maker, I decided to try my hand at sugar cones first.
Though I’m rarely intimidated by recipes, I built this up in my head and was pretty nervous…that is until I read the recipe and method and realized it was basically identical to making fortune cookies, but in a different shape. Done! These are a fun project and Andrew thought it was so super cool to eat ice cream out of cones that he helped to make. So glad we decided to give these a try because they are such fun! Next time I might try subbing in a little bit of cocoa powder, or maybe add some citrus zest or flavored extract. Oh, the possibilities.
