Costco’s ready-to-bake frozen croissants make these versatile Croissant Cones a delicious treat! However you decide to fill them- custard, pudding, whipped cream, and berries, your guests will be asking for more!
YEG Costco Lovers are a creative bunch!
The following recipe comes from Vicky Kulak, a fellow YEG Costco Lover. Vicky says her happy place is baking for friends and family in the kitchen. I’m sure you have some delighted friends, Vicky! Hi friend, coffee next week?
As a busy day home provider in the Stony Plane area, she shares her love of baking with the kids. Not only is she fostering a curiosity for cooking, but she is exposing them to science and math without them realizing it. If all homework tasted this good, I would have been much better in school.
If you’re a Costco shopper, your can pick up a giant box of frozen, unbaked croissants from the bakery. What? Yes, you can! If you don’t think you could eat 200 croissants, I highly suggest finding a friend to share with. Although, with recipes like this one and Kay Mastelero’s coi-nish, you may want to keep them all to yourself!
How to make Croissant Cones:
To make these delightful cones, remove them from the freezer and let them thaw for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, cut each croissant in half. Place the croissant cut side down into an oiled muffin tin. Let science do its magic and allow the croissants rise for 45 minutes.
Pop the croissants into a preheated 375* oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove them from the oven and immediately roll white sugar. Then, place on a cooling rack to cool completely.
Once cool, use the end of a wooden spoon to poke a hole into the cut end of the croissant to make room for the filling.
Now’s the time to get creative and fill your croissants. Here, Vicky uses fresh strawberries and whipped cream. What will you use? Custard? Pudding?
If you decide to get creative and make your own version of these croissant cones, let us know what you used for the filling.
