Italian Cream Horns (Cornetti de Crema) are delicious little pastries that are made with puff
pastry dough that is wrapped around metal molds, baked until crisp, and then filled with cream.
The cream filling can vary from a rich pastry cream, to a buttercream, or a simple whipped
cream. You can also use a cannoli filling. Add the filling to the pastry just before serving to
prevent the horns from getting soggy. The pastry horns can be made ahead and frozen for up to
a month. You can keep them on hand in the freezer for unexpected guests. The horns can be
re-crisped in a preheated 400 degrees F. oven for 5 minutes. Allow to cool a few minutes
before filling. Italian Cream Horns are also sometimes referred to as Cannoncini.
