Japanese Custard Cornet
A cornet is as a long, cream-filled pastry cone that is washed in egg, giving it a beautiful golden brown appearance. To give cornets their signature conch shell appearance, they are baked with a special cream horn mold. They come out hollow, and are then filled using a pastry bag of thick, sweet custard. In addition, the custard is sometimes filled with diced pistachio nuts for added crunch.
