Mmm… Cream Horns

20160825_124016(1600x1200)Making these was a fun way to spend a sweltering late August day.20160825_112315(1600x1200)Cut a flat of puff pastry into strips like so.  These are roughly 3/4″ wide – each one will become one horn when wound around the specialty pastry molds.  We had 6 so we had to run relays, I ordered more.20160825_120258(1600x1200)Mrs J brushed them all with an egg wash and sprinkled on some sugar.  They will bake for about 12 minutes at 350, check them every 5 minutes, turning them once.20160825_123057(1600x1200)When they’ve cooled use a pastry bag to fill with cream.  We tried this recipe:

MARSHMALLOW FLUFF ICING
1 stick butter (no substitutes)
7 oz jar of marshmallow creme
4 oz confectioner’s sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Beat butter until creamy. Add marshmallow fluff and incorporate into butter. Slowly add sugar and vanilla. Continue beating until light and fluffy.

Alas, we didn’t read the method closely enough and dumped everything into a bowl and set at it with a hand mixer, I think the cream we ended with was a bit heavier and not quite as stiff as it could have been.  Delicious, though!

Here’s a cream recipe we didn’t go with:

1 lb.  confectioners’ sugar
1 c.   Crisco
1 t    vanilla
Dash of salt
1/4 c. boiling water
Whip this all together and it will last about a month

And another one that we did try:

1 cup cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup marshmallow cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar

This last one was Mrs J’s favorite, and seemed to work a tad better:20160825_155025(1600x1200)
