This melt in your mouth, sweet buttercream filled cookie is a weakness of many.  We call them clothespin cookies, but the term lady locks, lady fingers and cream horns are all very popular. It's tradition for Mom & Grandma to spend all day in the kitchen making them for special occasions... maybe more of a tradition for them to disappear fast. They're a staple at every Wedding Cookie Table in Youngstown and Pittsburgh.  Just like the kolachi cookies and large kolachi rolls, once saved only for special occasions due to the time required in the kitchen, they're now a year round best seller enjoyed as a daily treat.  I find myself tasting them for 'quality control' quite often. Try eating them cold, right out of the freezer. You'll never switch back.

Size: Cookies are made by hand and therefore vary in size & weight, approximately 10 oz per box of 2 dozen.

Free shipping, coupon codes, and quantity discounts, if offered, are valid per order of all items shipped to the same address.

We don't add preservatives to our products, however this one is an exception. In order to comply with new food safety regulations and deliver safely, our buttercream now contains preservatives. It remains the highest quality, no fillers, and full of the same sweet creamy flavor we love.

Lady Fingers
I was disappointed in the cookies. The dough was not light and flakey. I would not purchase again.

Absolutely delicious. I was worried they would arrive in crumbs since their are a delicate cookie. But the packaging protected every last one of them. Not a single cracked or broken cookie. Of course they didn't last long because they are so good. I can't say enough good thing about your company - from the ordering on the website to the prompt delivery to the wonderfully delicious cookies - everything was superb.

Cream Horns
I ordered the mini cream horns for my niece's wedding. We did an Italian sweet table. The table was beautiful. I couldn't find any bakery around here to make them for me so I found your bakery on the internet. I never ordered from you before but I certainly will again. They were delicious. Thank You!

The Lady Locks are heavenly almost like my Mother-in-law's. I remember stuff the pasties with the filling. they were the best with coffee. Since she is gone and I never mastered the dough for these, I will order again. My husband like the also.

Clothespin cookies
This was the 1st time I tried these cookies and all I could say is WOW! They were far better than I expected and I don't usually say that about anything. Everyone must try these cookies, they are fresh and taste GREAT!

If this doesn't melt in your mouth try another! That's my excuse for eating more than one. These were my favorites during the Christmas holidays back home in Hermitage, PA. We'd get boxes of them and while mom wasn't looking, sneak one or two. That's still how I feel about these - no one can eat just one!!

Just like mama made
I can remember my Hungarian mother spending hours in the kitchen throughout the holidays baking nut rolls, tassies and what we called cream filled clothespin cookies. These were about as close to my mother's as I have found. The container with the 2 dozen cookies did not last 24 hours around here. Loved them.

Wonderful memories
I'm a Youngstown native, so I grew up with my grandmother making amazing things like kolache & clothes pin cookies - I was thrilled to find Butter Maid Bakery so now I can order these delicious things online and the "love" is delivered right to my door here in Washington state. I'm a long way from home, but these baked goods bring back wonderful memories that I can now share with my son (they are great story starters ;). Thank you Butter Maid Bakery and it's employees who are keeping the nostalgia alive and well across the US!

Oh. My. Goodness.
I ordered the Kolachi last year for Christmas. DELICIOUS! So came back this year to do the same. Also decided to try the Clothespin Cookies since I'm responsible for a Thanksgiving dessert at the husband's family. WELL GOSH DARN IT! I've got to order ANOTHER round because when my first order arrived, I figured I better try them first. OH. MY. GOODNESS. They are Heaven. Ate them all. BEWARE people... these things are amazing!

Soooooo good!
This was one of the first things I tasted on my first order...and knew I'd be a Buttermaid Bakery customer for life! These are so amazing, and so much better than grocery store mass-produced. And Buttermaid's customer service is just astounding. Friendly, thoughtful "welcomes" -- even a notecard from everyone welcoming me as a customer. I also got the peanut butter cookies and loved them too. What a wonderful company with wonderful food. I couldn't recommend them more sincerely.

WOW! Am I a happy camper--yes! The "clothespin" cookies I have searched for is complete. These are the most delicious clothespin cookies I have ever eaten! I promise this is so. Quality, fresh, tasty filling--they are outrageously scrumptious. The packaging is lovely with an enclosed hand-written thank you note. Next I want a nut roll & poppy seed roll. Can't wait until I get my SS check. Thank You God for for allowing me to enjoy these special sweets in my golden years. God bless America for the freedom for us to be able to buy food w/o it being governed by the government. Mary Flory, Hampton, GA

Love The Goodies
I placed an order back a month ago, for 1 of my oldest friends. Our children went through 12 years of school and we still remain friends. After the passing of her Husband, I sent her 2 packs of Kiffles and Lady Fingers. I don't believe in flowers. These sweets helped her get through 1 day with a cup of warm tea. She still has more in the freezer. LOVE THE GOODIES FROM BUTTER MAID.

Best Ever
The service, packaging and shipping were supreme. Not a crumb out of place when it arrived in Maryland.

Light, creamy goodness. Mother made these at Christmas time decades ago. They took tons of time and patience to make. So nice to find these confections at a reasonable price, available for shipping, and just as delicious as Mom made them.

I will be purchasing these for others and self in the future.

To die for!
We love 'Lady fingers'! When we drive to pennsylvania from Utah, we always bring a cooler, so we can bring boxes of lady fingers home to savor, they freeze really well, and taste just as good! We've never been able to find them anywhere in the country like they make them at Buttermaid Bakery.
Our Customers Say...

I ordered Kolachi cookies for my mother's 85th birthday with the hopes that they would be like the ones her Hungarian mother used to make when she was young. She LOVED them and said they were exactly like the ones her mother made. We were so impressed with how quickly they shipped and how delicious they were.
