Cannoncini, also known as cream horns, are delightful Italian pastries that are loved all around the world. This recipe features a rich and velvety Italian cream filling stuffed inside a flaky puff pastry horn. Here’s how you can make them at home.


For the pastry cream (crema pasticcera):

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 tbsp (30g) flour
  • 1/2 cup (100g) sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 235ml milk

For the cannoncini:


  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed (about 8 oz, 225 g)
  • 50g of sugar
  • 1 egg (for egg washing)
  • powdered sugar to decorate


  1. Start by making the pastry cream. In a saucepan, whisk together the egg yolks, sugar, vanilla extract, and flour until light and fluffy.
  2. Heat the milk until hot but not boiling, and add it a little at a time to the egg mixture, whisking continuously to ensure there are no lumps.
  3. Place the saucepan over medium heat and stir until the mixture comes to a slow boil. Reduce the flame and cook for a few more minutes, stirring continuously, until the cream thickens to the desired consistency.
  4. Pour the cream into a glass bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least an hour to cool.
  5. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. On a floured surface, roll out the puff pastry into a 9×12 inch rectangle and cut it into twelve strips (about 1 inch thick).
  7. Roll each strip onto a conical mold, ensuring that the dough overlaps by about half its length.
  8. Place the molds on the baking sheet with the strip end facing down, and lightly brush each horn with egg wash.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until the tops turn golden brown.
  10. Remove the pastry horns from the molds and allow them to cool for a few minutes.
  11. Fill each horn with the chilled pastry cream using a piping bag.
  12. Sprinkle powdered sugar over the top of the cannoncini and serve.
