Recipe: Candy Corn Cream Horns
Would a "Cream Horn" by any other name taste as sweetly?
"Trubochki" in Russian. "Torpil" in Turkish. I feel as though the English-speaking world failed in this name game. "Cream Horn" is far from appetite-inducing. But there's nothing not to like about these simple but extremely satisfying pastries.
Cone-shaped spirals of Pastry Dough filled with sweetened Whipped Cream, Cream Horns were The Great British Bake Off's penultimate signature challenge featured in Episode 8: Pâtisserie.
Like Tarts, Cream Horns are a "blank canvas" pastry. It's a basic theme that is perfect for infinite variations. While a sweetened Whipped Cream filling may be traditional (and undeniably delicious in its simplicity), you need not stop there. Even this Halloween spin, which involves a Honey sweetened Whipped Cream and Candy Corn, is rather basic. Fruit, Nuts, Chocolate, Custard, Cheese... if you can put it in your mouth, you can use it here!
