Lemon Mousse Cornucopias Recipe

I turn refrigerated pie pastry into cute cornucopias to hold a sweet-tart lemon mousse. They're a refreshing dessert for Easter.—Carole Bess White, Portland, Oregon
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min. + cooling YIELD:20 servings


  • 20 ice cream sugar cones
  • 2 packages (15 ounces each) refrigerated pie pastry
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons coarse sugar
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • Fresh mint leaves and lemon peel strips, optional


  • 1. Cover sugar cones with foil; lightly spray with cooking spray. Cut pastry into 1-in.-wide strips; wrap strips around prepared cones, sealing seams. Brush with egg; sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  • 2. Bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before removing pastry from cones to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over lemon juice and water; let stand for 1 minute or until softened. Heat over low heat, stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved; stir in lemon peel.
  • 4. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth; add gelatin mixture. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or until thickened.
  • 5. In a small bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form; fold into lemon mixture. Pipe into pastry cones; garnish with mint leaves and lemon peel strips if desired. Yield: 20 servings.
