Not “cakes” or “patties”.
I’m wanting “those ones” ( my English major daughter tortures me with that phrase) that are shaped like a cone, and bound with white sauce.
I’ve come to realize my mom may not have been a GREAT cook, but she introduced me to a lot of great things, and this was one of them.
I know I’ve explored this before, but I can’t find what I’m looking for, even in Joy of Cooking!
Anybody got any leads?

Sounds very like Spanish croquettes, where the filling is bound with a thick bechamel before being crumbed & fried. My experience there is that they are usually tubular rather than cone shaped. Croquettes are a favourite starter for us, in Spain, and we’ve eaten them in various regions. But the best we know is a small place in Tenerife where they make them with either ham or prawn. Both delicious. We’re just back from a trip and, this year, we chose the prawn. They come with a dollop of strongly flavoured alioli.
