ORANGE CREAM HORNS FOR A SPRING AFTERNOON TEA

This might be fun for your Easter/Spring Tea:



































Here is a wonderful and impressive item for your Afternoon Tea Tray.....ORANGE CREAM HORNS

.







You will need to purchase at least 12 metal "horns" at a specialty kitchen shop.

You need a box of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. Inside will be 2 sheets of dough folded into thirds. Take one sheet out and let it thaw out. It will open out into an 8 x 10 piece on a floured cloth which you will roll out into 12 x 10 " and cutting (12) 10" strips which you will wrap around and around the metal horn overlapping edges. Do not take it all the way to the top! Chill the horns 20 minutes before baking at 450 degrees until well puffed about 9 - 10 minutes. Brush with 1 egg white which has been blended with 1 tsp water. Return to oven reducing temperature to 350 degrees. Bake until glazed.

LET COOL COMPLETELY AND FILL WITH MY RECIPE FOR ORANGE CREAM FILLING: 1 1/2 cups squeezed orange juice, grated orange rind from 1 orange, 1 tsp lemon rind, 4 egg yolks, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour

In the top of a double boiler over hot water beat the egg yolks and add the sugar and flour and orange juice using a whisk to stir until thick (about 7 minutes) Stir in the orange and lemon rind. Let the pudding cool. Now whip 3/4 cup of whipping cream in a separate bowl. Blend with the pudding until thick. Fill the horns.......can dust with confectioners sugar too!
Last note: I also added a couple of drops of yellow and red food coloring to make a nice light orange color and 1 tsp orange extract for more flavor!  This is a repost from 2009.

WOW.........my husband LOVES cream horns.
I would love to make these but it looks hard. HA!
Maybe we should just come there....and eat all that great food you show that you make.

i bought a box of those metal molds several years ago, on a whim. Never have used them, so one question: How soon do you remove the molds---I know some things like cakes are harder to remove from pans when cool, but is there a time frame so the pastry won't collapse?

We love cream horns, but I have never heard of orange ones. They sound good.

Oh, Bernideen, they look fabulous! I would think that this filling might also work well in cream puffs, and may try it. What a nice dessert that would make! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
