  4. Bring to a boil until it is thick.
  5. Remove the lemon peel from the preparation and transfer the mixture to another container.
  6. Cover it with plastic wrap and make sure it sticks to the cream top so it doesn't create a crust and let it cool.

  8. Cut the puff pastry rectangle in 2 to 3cm strips in a lengthwise direction.
  9. Grease the pastry cone molds with oil.

  11. Place the cone molds on a tray lined with non-stick vegetable paper, with the top facing down and bake until golden brown.
  12. Remove from the oven and while still warm, unmold the pastry from the molds but be careful.
  13. Place previously prepared cream in a pastry bag with a mouthpiece and fill the cones.
  14. Arrange the cornucopias on a serving plate and sprinkle with cinnamon and powdered sugar to taste.
