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.

Finally found these, just like Mom's
My late mother-in-law used to make these when my husband was growing up in Ohio..Since she passed, he had not found any like hers. Most bakerys make them to dry or too sweet...I searched the internet last Christmas and found Buttermaid Bakery had them (figured snce you make with Real Butter they must be similar to hers....Bought these for my husband for a Christmas gift..he loved them..savored them for weeks,..He asked me in July to order them again (Christmas in July I guess).Now he had me order them to be sent to his brother in Ohio...who called last week to say they taste just like Mom's !!

My mom and I would make “polish horn” cookies every year for Christmas. I know how time consuming they are to make. I have never seen these sold anywhere. My mom is now 90 and no longer baking, so these made a perfect mother’s day gift. She ate them all the same day they arrived lol. They made her day. Thanks for that-you made her day very special!

Just like Grandma
When I was a child of course my 3 brothers and I always loved Christmas morning and could not wait to see what Santa had left under the tree. Somehow, magically, around 10 AM every Christmas morning there would be a knock on the door and the postman would deliver a hand wrapped (in brown grocery store bags) tied with string and hand lettered package from Pennsylvania. It was from my paternal grandmother and it always contained fresh baked horns (you call them nut rolls and kolachi (either poppy seed or walnut). I am still not sure how this woman from Eastern Europe accomplished this but it always made Christmas morning special.

Now, thanks to Butter Maid Bakery I can relive those wonderful moments and not just on Christmas Day. I have already sent orders to my brothers and usually keep a couple of rolls in the fridge for daily consumption with my morning coffee.

Thanks for the memories and always tasty horns. Keep up the good work.

Memories of Childhood
I purchased the nut horn cookies and two of the kolache rolls--one nut and one poppyseed. I found this site through an ad and had to check it out. I was thrilled when I saw saw the kolache rolls. Then when I found the nut horn cookies, well, I went a little crazy. When I was a child, my Grandmother made these for us every Christmas. We fought over the cookies. There never were enough to suit us. Grandma's were shaped like half-moon, but otherwise, the same. I haven't had them in over 50 years. No one had the recipes. I can't say enough about how fabulous everything tasted. It was something I never thought I would ever have again. I received them so quickly and it was all packed wonderfully. Everything was so moist and flavorful. I smiled with every bite I took. I will definitely be buying again. Thank you Butter Maid.
