Summer in a Cone

“Anything you could serve on a cracker or crisp you can serve in a cone,” says caterer Meagan Crafts, of Culinary Crafts in SLC. Crafts’ team creates cone recipes using wontons, bread, chocolate, tuiles, waffles, cookies and phyllo flavored with items like seaweed, bacon, pita and even tortillas.  “Once you make the cones, filling them becomes the best part,” she says. “The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.”
