Sure, you can buy ice cream cones at the store. But usually they are small, overly crunchy and fall apart, and often not very fresh. You can easily make homemade ice cream cones and even add custom flavorings. You will need a waffle cone iron or a pizzelle iron (neither is very expensive). Chef Phyllis whips up batches of delicious vanilla ice cream cones to go along with all her homemade ice creams. You can make large batches and keep them fresh in an air tight container stored in a dry place.
