Buttery and flaky cream horns ( Russian trubochki) filled with the sensational, flavorful   cream cheese filling.This amazing dessert is on the must-try list.


  • Pastry puff sheet ( thawed)- 500 gm or 1 sheet
  • Cream cheese ( softened at room temperature)- 4 ounces (115 grams)
  • Whipping cream*- 1 cup
  • Confectioners (powdered or icing) sugar-1 cup plus extra for dusting
  • Lemon zest( grated)- 1/2 tsp
  • Vanilla extract- 1 tsp
  • Roasted crushed almonds- 2 tbsp


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F / 200 C. Place the rack in the center of the oven.
  2. On a clean, slightly dusted flat surface, unfold 1 thawed puff pastry sheet. Place it on the surface. Dust the rolling pin with some flour.
  3. Using a pastry cutter, make 22 strips. Roll each strip lengthwise so that it doubles in length.
  4. Start at the end of a mould, wrap the dough around the mould in a spiral manner.
  5. Lightly press along with your fingers all the wrapped edges to seal them.
  6. Repeat the same with the remaining cream horns moulds.
  7. Place the wrapped moulds on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 12 min or until golden brown. I baked them in batches of 11.
  8. Remove the horns from oven. Allow to cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet. Remove the moulds and transfer the horns to a large plate.
  10. In a bowl of your electrical mixer, beat whipping cream with icing sugar until just the cream reaches stiff peaks. Add in cream cheese, vanilla and lemon zest. Beat 20-30 seconds.
  11. Fill the pastry bag ( with 2D tip) with filling & pipe it into each cream horn.
  12. Roast 2 tbsp crushed almonds. Allow to completely cool.
  13. Top each cream horn with some roasted crushed almonds.
  14. Dust with icing sugar.
