My waffle cone maker arrived today. Found the best price at Amazon and when I signed up for the free month-long trial of Amazon Prime, two day shipping was free.
Purchased the Chef's Choice 838 Waffle Cone Express Ice Cream Cone Maker - - - which comes with a "doo-dad" to wrap the warm waffle around so that it ends up being shaped like a cone.
There is a small ice cream shop in Sylva, NC called Jack The Dipper. They have two kinds of cones, made on an ancient looking machine. A plain/vanilla flavored cone and one with cinnamon added. OMG! It's amazing what a little bit of cinnamon can do for the taste of the cone. Forget the ice cream and just give me an empty cone!!
I plan to break it in over the weekend making "strawberry tacos". Will let you know how it goes.
