My grandmother used to make this quick treat for my sister and I when we were small. I remember staying with her in Florida and being able to enjoy My Grandma’s Easy Ice Cream Cones every day! Whether you fill them with whipped or ice cream this recipe for My Grandma’s Easy Ice Cream Cones is a definite keeper!
This recipe holds dear memories of my grandmother. My sister and I spend a great deal of time when we were younger visiting her. She lived in Florida and it was also such an adventure.
She often found things that we could make with her. I think that is so important. Anytime you can include your children in the kitchen do it! It is so good for all of you. Often you will enjoy it more than the kids!
This recipe is very quick and easy. They can ready to eat in less than ten minutes! You make a super simple dough. They bake for 4-6 minutes. As soon as you take them out you roll them into a cone shape. It is important to roll while they are still warm. That’s all it takes to make homemade cones!
The fun part is deciding what filling you want. It is fun to set up a selection of different fillings, toppings, and decorations. Everyone can totally customize their own cone!
At Grandma’s house we always filed the cones with ice cream. Through the years I have tried lots of different filling and we have enjoyed them all!
Whipped cream is a great filling. You can be very creative with the flavors you add to the cream. Custard is another winning filling. Who doesn’t love a great dessert custard? Yum!
The decorations are especially fun for the kids. They make adorable sprinkles and such these days.
My hope is that you and your family will make great memories using this recipe too!
