How to Fold French Fry Cone Holders From Parchment Paper

By A.J. Andrews

Parchment-paper cones give french fries a simple, yet elegant, presentation commonly used in high-end bistros. Parchment paper goes through a silicone-infusion process during production that allows it to withstand temperatures of up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and resist oil saturation, making it a smart choice for fried foods. Forming the paper into a cone allows it to hold potato chips and french fries.

Step 1

Position a 12- by 12-inch sheet of parchment paper on the work surface.

Step 2

Bring the bottom right corner of the paper to the upper left corner.

Step 3

Press the fold to form a seam. Cut the parchment paper in half along the seam to form two triangles. Set one triangle aside.

Step 4

Position the paper triangle with the point directed away from you and the base in front of you.

Step 5

Bring the bottom right corner of the paper to the apex of the triangle and hold it in place. The bottom right corner and the apex will form a cone.

Step 6

Wrap the bottom left corner of the triangle around the cone formed by the apex and bottom right corner 1 1/2 times. The cone will have two layers of paper. Hold the cone in place with your fingers.

Step 7

Fold 3 inches from the top of the cone down into the cone. The fold secures the cone.
