nanoparty! these are worth trying, for sure.

Emita I hope you'll let us know how your experiment works out.
I have only crisped mine in the microwave - I am sure they'd crisp in the oven.

I bought some fresh, raw cream and I intend to make ice cream this weekend.
Hope to hear about your ice cream cones!

the creme horns were too small >_< can't find big ones. I can only find wooden rollers for forms, or entire pizzelle makers. Ideas?

Imperfect for sure, but shape aluminum foil?
Ugh - what a project!

again the problem remains of how to keep the tortilla wrapped around the thing! hmm. I could wrap the entire thing in foil and shape it, but then it would A. maybe have a hole at the bottom B. maybe not crisp up.

Sometimes, if you don't have a particular size of pastry tin/cutter, it's possible to fabricate a shape from poster board and over-wrapping it with foil. It might be possible to create a cone of the desired size from board and then overwrap it in strips of foil, and that would ensure a sealed end and an open end.

You Tube has videos on DIY cookie cutters and Lifehacker has
Make Your Own Personalized Cookie Cutters from a Simple Foil Pan

good news, the Google served me fantastically:

"how to make homemade tortilla cones" resulted in this:

"
-Lay a tortilla, wheat or flour variety, flat on a plate. Run tap water over your fingertips then lightly flick a small amount of water directly onto the tortilla two to three times.

-Fold the tortilla into a cone shape by folding about one quarter of the tortilla over itself radiating from the center to one side.

-Place the tortilla point down into a coffee cup. Place the cup into the microwave and cook on high for about two minutes, or until the tortilla begins to harden. Microwaving the tortilla until it is completely stiff is not necessary. You only want to remove enough moisture from the tortilla so that it just begins to stiffen.

-Leave the tortilla in the coffee cup and place it into the freezer for about ten minutes. You can also set it aside at room temperature for about thirty minutes.

-Your tortilla cone is now ready to eat! Use it to hold dips, seafood or any other food you desire. For a tasty addition for use as an ice cream cone, lightly spray the prepared cone with unflavored non stick spray, then sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over the cone. Lightly shake off any excess before using.

Got some whole psyllium husks and FINALLY made this recipe! Of course it was simple and awesome and delicious, but possibly I wasn't doing something right...mine did turn out a bit less bread-like and more moister/eggy/stretchy...or are they supposed to be a bit crepe-like? They weren't like WET or anything, but maybe just didn't mix as well? Any tips? How bready are they, exactly?

Either way, I put some salmon & avocado salad on them and it was divine. Thank you so much for this recipe!!

Today I made batter, adding a bit of salt and onion powder.
The original recipe made 6 tortillas medium corn size.

I spread them with a bit of Herdez green salsa, cooked burger,
cheese, very small dice onion and a few chopped olives, rolled
them and placed a bit of sauce in bottom of 8x8 sprayed pan
and layed them in. Topped them with the bit of burger left over,
more cheese, olives and green salsa. Didn't want to over load
on the sauce because I don't know if the moisture will make them
fall apart. Tonight we eat enchiladas. Yay! Will report.

Now I'm sorry I didn't try them long ago.

The enchiladas got a big hug and a 5 star from DH.
It made 6 encheese and they were delish. The 'tortillas'
did NOT fall apart, as a matter of fact, they held together
better than tortillas. They came right up out of the pan,
no sticking, no falling apart, they were simply winner winner
enchilada dinner. Never doubt you again Quis.....
Now I have to go back and read all the threads and see what
else to do with them. Oh, do they fry up for tacos? They would
make fabulous lasagna noodles. Thanks so much for this outstanding
recipe.

I just embarrased myself. I feel like a Dough Dough Bird



It seems I tried these years ago and forgot....oh well, may I be excused?
I am 84 years old now.

Oh my gosh!

I am NOT 84, I HOPE to be 84 someday, but I am the same, Barb.
I think something is brand new, then I find I commented on it and tried it a couple of years ago.

WE ARE ALL EXCUSED!
