Preheat the oven to 200 °C (400 °F)
First prepare the custard (see link above for recipe)
Cut the puff pastry into 12 strips (size 2× 33 cm, 3/4×13 in). Lightly grease the steel cones with some butter. Wrap one strip of puff pastry on each cone
Bake the cones on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Cook for about 7-8 minutes until the “cornucopie” are lightly browned. Remove and allow to cool. Remove the pastry cones from the steel forms
Fill the pastry cones with custard using a pastry bag. Decorate the custard with almonds and sprinkle the “cornucopie” with powdered sugar.
Once filled, they should be eaten within a few hours. Otherwise the dough will lose its crispness.
