  • I must admit, this is by far the easiest recipe for cream horns that I have found...I would just like to thank you SOOOO much for this recipe

  • I tried the recipe and it failed my taste test. The filling was fine but the cream horn pastry was awful. While baking the cream horn pastry was in a sea of butter and shortening. I wouldn't recommend spending the money for this one. Sorry!!
