Cream horns

This recipe for cream horns is also known as creme horns.  If looking for cream horn recipes, look no further.

Ingredients – 6 to 8 horns

  • Puff pastry: 300g
  • Raspberry jam: 3tsp
  • Chantilly cream: 150ml
  • Granulated sugar: 2tbs
  • Butter: for greasing
  • Plain flour: for dusting

Getting everything ready

  • Allow the puff pastry to rest for at least 30 minutes.
  • Use a touch of butter to lightly grease the cream horn moulds and baking tray.
  • Spoon the jam into a small paper piping bag.
  • Spread the sugar in a shallow dish.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200°C (Gas Mark 6).

Method

  1. Lightly dust the work surface and rolling pin with a touch of flour and roll the pastry out in a rectangle shape about 40cm by 16cm and allow to rest.
  2. Carefully cut strips of pastry about 2cm wide and 40cm in length.  Lightly brush each strip with a touch of cold water.
  3. Starting from the base, very carefully roll out the pastry around the moulds.  Try hard not to pull and stretch the pastry.
  4. When all the moulds have been lined with the pastry, brush the top side with cold water and dip in the granulated sugar.  This should hopefully give you a lovely crisp sugar coating when the cream horns are cooked.
  5. Place the pastry horns on the baking tray sugar side up and bake in the centre of the pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes.
  6. Remove the pastry horns from the oven and allow to cool before removing the moulds.  Pipe a touch of jam into the bottom of each pastry horn.
  7. Prepare the chantilly cream and spoon into a large piping bag fitted with a star tube.  Neatly pipe the cream into the cream horns.
