GIFT BOX AVAILABLE - It's not the holidays in our homes without Nut Rolls, but we bet you know someone who has never heard of them. Share your family tradition as a nice gesture or thank you, so they can start a sweet tradition of their own! Each gift box includes a brief history, serving & storing instructions.

If you're familiar with this ethnic Eastern European nut roll, you know that any reason to gather with family & friends... and these usually appear. If you've never heard of nut roll, please add them to your food bucket list... you won't be disappointed. "Nut Roll" is the generic name for our rolls. We call them "Kolachi", but more on that below.

Upon order placement, we bake your 24oz walnut kolachi rolls fresh (also available as kolachi cookies) with the freshest ingredients we can find. We take the time to bake the old fashioned way, like our Grandparents did. We mix fresh dough with ingredients you can pronounce - flour, sugar, eggs, butter, milk. You get the idea... no artificial ingredients, fillers, additives, or preservatives. No excuses. Our farm fresh eggs, sweet cream butter, & milk are from a local family dairy farm... a no-hormone added rBST free farm. And please don't get us started on cheap margarine or shortening... great baked goods start with the best ingredients, and there is no substitute for the flavor of real butter!

Have you ever cut a kolachi in half and wondered where the walnut filling is? Is it nothing but bread? Making every roll as if we were going to eat it, we like more filling than dough... so that's exactly how we make them. By weight, there is actually more filling in each nut roll than dough! The rich & creamy walnut filling makes each kolachi very soft and moist, never dry. Walnuts are actually the number one ingredient! We grind the freshest California grown English walnuts, straight into our mixing bowl. They don't come in already ground, or sit around and dry out. They are made into filling, spread on dough, and off to the oven.

So what do you call nut roll? We've heard them all, and with slight variations among origin, the three things they all have in common is family tradition, homemade quality, and great memories.  "Nut Roll" comes in many flavors. However, this is only correct when referring to the flavor of walnut - therefore this walnut kolachi roll is "The Original" as listed. Confused yet? Sorry, lol. Walnut is king, so over time the other flavors lost the naming battle. Kolachi or Kolache, just like Nut Roll, is also a somewhat generic term for many sweet yeast dough pastries - which may also be familiar to Slovak, Polish, Hungarian, Croatian, Russian, Czech, and more. If you're Hungarian you probably also call these Nut Bread / Studel, or Dios Beigli. If you're Slovak you may also call them Nut Cake / Cakes / Strudel, or Orechovnik. Orehnjaca or Nut Cakes is also Croatian, Serbian, or Yugoslavian. If you're Polish you may also call them Nut Bread, Strudel or Strucla. Potica or Povitica can be Slovenian / Serbian / Croatian / Slovak. No matter your ethnicity and what you call them, we just hope our rolls can fulfill your holiday baked good traditions, and bring back some sweet memories!

This Easter was first time ordering walnut kolachi from Butter Made Bakery. It was wonderful; so reminiscent of what my mother in law made. I ordered at the last minute and it arrived as promised. We will definitely order again but this time I will order several and freeze them. The staff was very pleasant on the phone and helpful. Somehow this bakery showed up as a pop up (I think) and I'm so glad it did. Encourage anyone on the fence about ordering; I don't think you'll be disappointed; we certainly weren't. Will definitely continue to order from Butter Maid.

BEST I have ever eaten!!!
I ordered the nut roll last week and had it within 2 days. It was the BEST I have ever eaten!!!!!! The dough was very sweet and flaky and the nut filling was exquisite!!!! I didn't tell my daughter or grandsons that I had ordered one or I would never had a bite. Needless to say I will be ordering more things in the future. Butter Maid you are the BEST!!!!!!!

The Best
We grew up with the real nut roll, as my grandparents were Slovak. I read your reviews online and took a chance - sent your nut roll to my sister both for her birthday and for her family to celebrate Passover. She wanted it all for herself, it was that good, and my nephew said it is the best dessert he has ever had. Seriously high praise. I am jealous because I did not get to taste it! I guess I'll have to send one to myself!

The best kolachi ever!
My only exposure to kolachi is from the local grocery store. My husband would tell me how his Nana would make it from scratch and how wonderful it was. Unfortunately when I started dating him, Nana had give up cooking for other hobbies. On a whim I ordered from Buttermaid and let's say my hubby is a happy camper. The nut rolls are packed with filling, flavor and love! They are nice and moist compared to the dried out wannabes from the grocery store. We will continue to be repeat customers. Thank you!

I ordered 2 rolls for my table for Christmas on January 7th. Your ordering staff was superb since the nut rolls arrived just in time for dessert!

Loved my grandmas kolachi. Your is the closest to hers that I've ever had.

My grandma & mom made Hungarian kolachi every Christmas & Easter!! My mom can no longer make the kolachi. I hope to make it as good as they did to carry on the tradition. In the meantime, I LOVE BUTTERMAID'S kolachi!!

I used to get kolachi from Buttermaid back in the mid 1960's, when they were in the Boardman Plaza the first time. Was the closest to my mom's that I could find!

Best kolachi ever! I used to work at Southern Park and would buy these all the time, my family is hooked on them now too.

Every year the first thing Grandma would make for Christmas is Kolachi. As a little girl I would sit and help Grandma grind the nuts in her little old fashion nut grinder. I loved watching the nuts pop all over in the little jar as they were being grinded. She made the best kolachi ever, and Buttermaid makes a most delicious kolachi that is almost as good as Grandma's was. Yummy.

Every year since I can remember, my Mom who has passed away, made homemade Familiy's favorite! We've just moved back to the area & tried Buttermaid Kolachi...and its perfection! So tasty & even better than my sweet Mothers!!

Thank you for sharing such wonderful treats all year round. I have followed you from place to place in the mall. And love the new store in the boardman plaza. By purchasing baked goods from your family, I am able to spend more time and make more memories with my children. Thank you for that.

The best damn kolachi I've ever had!!!! It was perfect in every way....a customer bought it for me as a gift and since I didn't share it with anyone my husband had to come buy more!!!

Butter Maid is why I never learned to make my own!

Love the years of making homemade Kolachi with my Grandma !! Have her recipe written in her handwriting .. But haven't tried it alone yet!! Love yours ! Next best thing!!

My mother in law taught me how to make this kolachi and butter maid bakery makes me the best to home made I have ever tasted

When I was growing up... In my grams Hungarian kitchen... we would crack bags and bags..( it seemed like forever) walnuts... and then put them through this big metal grinder... I hated this part... but loved the Nut Rolls... and Poppy Seed and Lekvar as well... I never learned how to make them.. wish I knew... but I buy from Butter Maid Bakery... brings me back in time.... Thank you for the lasting memories... and we even had the cotton wrapped Sassafrass Tree... another Hungarian tradition...

My grandmothers kolachi recipe has been in our family for years. It's the best I've ever tasted. Working two jobs makes it kinda hard to make now so I rely on places like butter maid who make great kolachi along with other great bakery items.

My girlfriends and I used to make kolachi yrs ago...Buttermaid is the best store bought I've ever full of filling. I will never make again as long as Buttermaid has it..

This was a hit with my family dinner. Phenomenal!
Plenty of filling BM doesn't skimp

Real Homemade Rolls
I found your bakery online during my search for Kolachi Rolls. My grandmother used to make them before she passed away and mom still makes them during the holidays. I purchased the walnut and poppyseed rolls and had them shipped to my mother for her birthday. I was so anxious to hear what she thought and when she tried them she could not believe how great they tasted. She said they tasted just like the ones they have baked for many years. So, I ordered them for myself and have to say they are amazing. They truly are the real homemade rolls I grew up eating. We will definitely continue to order fron your bakery and thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job making real homemade treats!!!

Last Christmas our daughter found your web site and ordered the
poppyseed and nut roll. When she came for the holiday and we got to sample your rolls it was like heaven. Years ago when I was young we had a bakery in my home town that made wonderful nut, poppyseed rolls and other pastries, when I tasted your rolls it was like going back 70 years to that place. I'm now ordering the poppyseed and nut roll to freeze because when I have company they love your rolls. You have a wonderful bakery and do a great job in packing the rolls for freezing.

Just like my mother used to make
I didn't think I would ever order baked goods/buchta or more commonly known as nut roll over the internet, but the photos on your website looked so good I had to; I also love your "story." I ordered a walnut roll for my sister for her birthday and had to get one for me a few weeks later. I can't tell you how happy I was when I opened the package to see the beautiful nut roll......thin layers of dough and plenty of wonderful walnut filling...just like my mother used to make. It is wonderful! Thanks so much. Brings back happy memories too. Can't wait to try another filling.

You made my Christmas! I grew up in Columbiana, Ohio and remember my Grandmother bringing Kolachi for us to eat every Christms morning. After my Grandmother died more than 30 years ago, we never had it again. I missed it every year. I found Butter Maid Bakery on line and decided to order it this year. IT WAS AWESOME!!!

Hungarian Heritage
I'm all Hungarian. My mother used to make the nut roll, but my aunt from Hungary made them too. I found out we are Ashkanazi Jews. She used to cook for royalty I'm told. She was small and hunched over. She had a great flower garden in Middletown, Ohio. We visited from Dearborn, Mich. She would roll out the dough and fill it. She made several at a time. She was so proud. What she also made were the churtaga - cookies rolled out, turned inside out and deep fried and rolled in powered sugar. I could never make the cookies, but I have made the nut rolls. I made them with a neighbor who is Polish - close enough. I sent your rolls to my single cousin in Florida this past spring. I have been sending to her at Christmas for the last few years. I live in South Carolina. She was dying of colon cancer. She so enjoyed the nut roll - a last enjoyment to remind her of her Hungarian heritage too. She passed in May. So I am soo fond of your nut rolls. I do not make my own. It is a real treat for me and a reminder of my Hungarian heritage. I cannot find a place for a response. Add me to the list of satisfied customers. - K Mason

I am European-born so have been accustomed to excellent bakers in each generation of our families. Sadly, those of us who used to do a great deal of baking are no longer able to do so for one reason or another. This is the first year that I have considered looking on-line for some of our favorite baked goods and was more than pleasantly surprised at the quality of goods purchased at the Butter Maid Bakery.

Bought the nut rolls (original) for Easter. Like probably many of your customers, my mother used to make these rolls for the holidays, Christmas and Easter. Mom's nut rolls used to have more bread between the nuts but your nut rolls taste very similar. I was impressed with the delivery and packaging. The nut rolls came to us in a very timely manner in a plastic container with the nut rolls sealed in plastic. My family enjoyed the nut rolls
for Easter 2012. The nut rolls were a tradition as I was growing up so the nut rolls are a must for the holidays. Thanks again for a fine product. Blessings and Happy Easter !!

I have given your nutroll to our friends in Las Vegas. The husband Butch grew up in Beaver Falls and we all agree the rolls are just like our mothers made years ago. They will be ordering from you and I just received my 6th or 7th order. keep them coming.
Suggestion-we have found that placing the roll in the over @ 350 for 15 minutes does great as it seems as if shipping may be done when rolls are still warm and may seem a little unbaked.

Just like Mom used to make.
I recently ordered one of these nut rolls for my sister in New York, since she was missing the ones our mom used to make at Christmastime. Our mom passed away January of this year. When she received it in the mail, she called me. "Guess what' she said. "I took a bite, closed my eyes and I could see Mommy right in front of me with a big smile on her face. It tasted just like hers." I was so happy that she enjoyed it, that I decided to buy the 3 pack for Arizona, since there are 3 of us out here and thought it would be like having mom with us at Christmas again. I'll write again when I've tasted it myself. Happy Holidays!
