A cream horn — a flaky pastry shaped like a horn and filled with rich cream — has a delicious trait of contrast. Layers of crispy pastry that surround the decadent cream, resulting in a satisfying crunchy-but-smooth texture.
In fact, that is really the only ingredient you need to make them. This style of dessert can be made with other types of pastry, including phyllo, so once you have the technique down, you can feel free to experiment. You could use homemade puff pastry, but it’s not necessary for an impressive and tasty treat.

1 Egg, beaten with a tablespoon of cream
2 Tbsp of Sugar
