Colonial Sugar Cones/Piloncillo

I get a lot of requests for a recipe to make these sugar cones from folks who have purchased molds. The bad news is that these sugar cones are made with raw liquid sugar, so unless you have a big kettle of raw sugar or sugar cane juice boiling over a fire in your back yard, you're out of luck. I have never found a recipe for making them out of anything that you can buy in the grocery store.

It might be possible to create some sort of water/sugar solution, fill the molds with it, and then let it dry. If any of you adventurous souls out there with molds ever gets this to work, let me know how you did it.

Sugar cones are still used in Mexico, so you can sometimes find them in Mexican groceries.They are called "piloncillo". You can also buy them on the Internet See:
