Homemade Ice Cream Cones


These homemade ice cream cones are a cross between crêpes and store-bought sugar cones. They're a huge hit with all my friends and they're easy to make! If you have extras, store them in an airtight container, unroll, and re-crisp in the oven at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • 2 large eggs

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup butter, melted and cooled

  • 3 tablespoons milk, or as needed

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • cup all-purpose flour

  • teaspoon salt

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, or as needed


  1. Whisk together eggs and sugar in a large bowl until frothy. Whisk in butter, milk, and vanilla. Gradually whisk in flour and salt until smooth. The batter should be thin; you can stir in more milk if needed.

  2. Heat a small skillet or griddle over medium heat. Brush the pan lightly with oil. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet and turn to spread out the batter into a thin circle. When the underside is golden brown, flip over and cook until golden on the other side. Remove from the pan and form into a cone while it's hot, squeezing the end to seal.

  3. Place on a wire rack to cool and harden completely. Repeat with the remaining batter.
