We have created some easy recipes to get you started. The simplest way to make your batters is to follow the same basic waffle batter recipe and then add your own special touches. You can use any waffle mix for your recipes, although we recommend our own Chef'sChoice® Gourmet Waffle Mix for your savory cones or Chef'sChoice® Gourmet WaffleCone Mix for your sweet cones. You can also use Bisquick.
It only takes a small amount of batter to fill each of the three cone plates. A small plastic spoon for measuring your batter is included with your PetiteCone Express cone maker. A baby spoon or demitasse spoon will also work well.
When the cones are baked (according to the instructions for your PetiteCone Express™), one at a time remove them from the grid and roll into cone shapes. Work quickly to roll the cones before they cool.
The trick to making these petite cones is not to overfill the plates. Remember, thin, pliable, hot waffles will produce light and crispy cones. Too much batter will make a thick, soggy product that does not roll well or harden properly.
Your batter should be thin enough to flow off the spoon and onto the hot waffle plates. You can adjust the consistency through the amount of liquid you use. It is best to make your batter in a large bowl, using a sturdy whisk to break up any lumps. As long as you follow the basic recipe, you can enhance it by substituting liquids or by adding spices and flavorings to create all sorts of sumptuous savory and sweet cones.
