Full disclosure: the price of these nut horns may cause sticker shock. An old-world delicacy, these are another species altogether. Meticulously hand crafted start to finish by one person, our Nut Horn Extraordinaire hand selects each and every fresh walnut, hand chops, blends, rolls, forms each and every cookie, mastering the highest standards of pastry perfection. Irresistible walnut filling wrapped in a delicately flakey yet rich, buttery, sugar coated crust - truly a taste revelation.

Also known as walnut horns, butter horns, kifli, kifle, kieflie, kiefle. Variations include walnut kolachi cookies and walnut rolls.

Size: Handmade cookies vary in size & weight, approximately 4-5" long and 8-10 horns per roughly 10 oz box.

Old world style captured!
There is no higher compliment than one from my 92 year old father who said they remind him of what his sister used to make 50 years ago. Thanks for making these available. You have made someone very happy.

WOW! The nut horns are absolutely delicious..ate a whole container by myself. Friends and family begged for more so I have since ordered more..crust perfect, filling just right, not at all skimpy on the nuts and not too sweet. Expensive but well worth the prize for the pleasure of savoring them.

Nut Horn Cookies
The cookies are wonderful! They bring back a lot of memories. They arrived in perfect condition. I knew them as Kifli. The only difference between the ones that I used to get is that the nuts were not a smooth paste. There was a little more texture in the filling. But, they’re excellent and a joy to eat!

Greatest Bakery Ever
I was introduced to your bakery this past Christmas by my brother and his wife. I am now hooked. I've purchased products for my family, neighbors and friends. Nothing compares to the old fashioned goodness that we have all grown up with. You're making so many wonderful memories for future generations! Thank you!!

Taste and Customer Service....Just like in the days of old!!!
This company and their baked goods take me back two generations ago....when the time was taken to make fantastic pastries and companies cared about their customers!!! My husband's family is Slovac. Everything tastes just like Baba used to bake. I've placed several orders...all have arrived quickly, in perfect condition, and absolutely delicious!! I keep a stash in the freezer for emergencies. This company and their pastries are now a part of our holiday tradition! Five star rating is not enough...I'd give them 10 stars if I could!

Memory is in smell and taste
I have always heard that your best memory is in smell and taste. When I tasted these Butter horns I cried! It was like my Mother was in the kitchen again baking for us all like she used to. There is nothing else out there like these little horns and Kolachi rolls! Its like they took her recipe and made them! I will always buy these for the Holidays and for any special event.This is the best company I have ever bought from. They really appreciate your business!

Nut horns
The nut horn are exactly like my Hungarian grandmother and my mother made every Christmas. My grandmother and mother curled the ends to make more of a horn look. The taste is exactly the same! I'm so happy not to have to make them as they are very time consuming at this busy time of the year! My kids are very accustomed to this cookie at this time of the year so the nut horns will be very welcome!

I wish the Horns were made all the time and not just limited times. I always pull out a container of one of these from the freezer when my kids and grandkids come as they all love them too.
I also would love to have rasberry Kolachis!

Yep, every time some one .....including my family asks did you make these? I tell a little white lie, by saying of course I did......honest they tastes exactly like mine, exactly like my mom made and taught me to bake. The problem is I am just not that ambitious any more and it's just so easy to order from you.The recipe is the same, I swear, and that's no lie. They are the best and my six dozen will not last long.

My wife ordered your three pastry roll special, cherry walnut, apricot and poppy seed. She is a fanatic for these rolls and they are relatively hard to find the way she likes them, a more basic version that is filled with flavor and not sugary frosting. What can I say other than these rolls far exceeded our expectations! Let me further ...
