Puff pastry cream cones

I like to keep a spare roll or two of puff pastry in my freezer - it's very versatile and can be used with both sweet and savoury fillings to create a quick snack. One of my favorites are cream cones. They are quick and easy to make, as long as you have these:

I bought mine in Lakeland, but they are also available on Ebay or Amazon. Apart of that, you're gonna need:

Ingredients for 10-12 cones:
1 roll ready rolled puff pastry
1 cup whipping cream, chilled
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
10-12 glacé cherries

If your puff pastry is frozen, let it thaw in the fridge overnight, if you bought a fresh one open the pack and unroll the pastry sheet. Cut it into even strips along the shorter edge. Roll each strip around the metal cone, starting from spike end and slightly overlapping layers as you go around. Press lightly the end of strip to stick it. Lay ready cones well spaced on a baking sheet - end of pastry strip down, so they don't unroll during baking (you can lightly press them to the sheet, so they don't rock to the sides). Bake them in 200C for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. Let them cool.
Whip cream with sugar and vanilla extract, until it holds shape. Put it into piping bag and snip the end. Fill cones and finish them off with glacé cherries. You can use fresh berries as well!
Enjoy :-)
