Cream horns -Трубочки


Treats like  cream horns (trubochki) filled with fluffy cream will always be a big hit on any type of party. And for us who grew up in slavic family they sure do bring a lot of childhood memories. I make dough from scratch for these,but you can use store-bought  puff pastry as well.

I made these for Christmas using cream recipe from .I usually use different cream for these.But, I liked this one better.


2 1/2 sticks frozen salted butter (300 grams)

2 1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup cold water

1 egg

1/4 cup vinegar


2 cups heavy whipping cream

3/4 can sweetened condensed milk

1-2 teaspoons vanilla

Powdered sugar for dusting.


In a large mixing bowl,Shred butter using a grater.

Add flour,and rub the flour with butter to make a crumb mixture.

In a separate small bowl,whisk water,vinegar, and egg.

Add water/egg/vinegar mixture to flour/butter.

Mix using hands few times. (Don’t over mix)

Divide dough in to 4-5 portions/balls.

Refrigerate for about 1 hour.

You will need cream horn molds to make these.

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

On well floured surface roll out dough.Not to thin,so you will be able to roll the dough around mold.

Cut into 1 inch strips.

Starting from the pointy top,wrap the strip around the mold overlapping half the width of the strip.

Lay them on the baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes or until slightly golden.



Start by whipping heavy whipping cream.

Add 1 tbs at the time of sweet condensed milk.

Add vanilla.

Whip until it becomes thick.

Fill a pastry bag with cream and fill cream horns with it.

Dust with generous amount of powdered sugar.
