Do you remember these double cones? When I lived in Ca. you could go to a drugstore out there and get an ice cream cone for a nickel. Maybe you still can. They were not the double cones, I haven't seen those since I was a kid. I want to make ice cream, fresh peach and fresh strawberry. I want to make waffle cones and take them on a picnic with my home made ice cream. Here is a recipe for waffle cones:
Gourmet Waffle Cones
This is our basic recipe for a rich buttery waffle cone.
Yield: About 8 cones

1 whole egg
1 egg white
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup sifted all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. butter, melted and cooled slightly

1. Preheat the WaffleCone Express™. Start with Color Control setting of 2 1/2 to 3, but change as necessary for best results.
2. Beat the egg, egg white and salt in a small bowl with a fork until well blended. Beat in the sugar and beat until sugar is incorporated and the egg has lightened in color slightly, about 1 minute. Beat another 15 seconds to incorporate the flour and remove all lumps. Add the melted butter and stir until well blended.
3. Spoon 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) of batter in the center of the iron. Bake for 1 minute then check for proper color. Cook an additional 5 to 10 seconds if necessary.
4. Quickly remove the waffle from the WaffleCone Express™ onto a clean cloth towel. Use the cloth to help lift and roll the waffle around the cone form. Hold the cone a few seconds to set its shape then place on a wire rack to cool.
I think you can use a regular waffle iron to make these, What a treet.
When I was 17 I worked in a restaurant-ice cream parlor, the owner Jack white , made the ice cream with the help of teen age boys, It was a drive in also and served
hamburgers, fries and all the regular things but the ice cream , people came from all around to get this wonderful handmade treat. handpacked and the freshest ingredients. Our crew was taught the right way to make a soda, a sundae a banana split, Cherry cokes and lemon and 2 pinball macines.
This was a going place, a lot like "Happy Days" The ice cream was the best I have ever had. the condiments like nuts and cherries and whipping cream were abundant and all summer the place was packed.We made good tips but my friend and I were night managers and we made $60.00 a week. That was big money back then. Kids were making 50 cents an hour. We were 2 lucky girls. That is the Ice CREAM STORY. Did you ever see a double cone?? Do you have an ice cream story???
