CREAM HORNS COOKIES

These Cream Horns are a must-have cookie recipe for my family. The flaky crust and creamy filling make them irresistible!

I did a little research and found out that Cream Horn Cookies are more commonly known as Lady Locks and are a tradition here in Pittsburgh.

Ingredients

unsalted butter vegetable shortening sugar egg yolks cold water all purpose flour clothespins wrapped in foil or lady lock molds Filling:  milk all purpose flour unsalted butter vegetable shortening vanilla kosher salt confectioners' sugar sugar for garnish

To make them, you’ll need a mold to form the horn around. My Aunt Maggie uses a clothespin wrapped in foil, so that’s what I did.

STEP 1

The filling is similar to a buttercream icing, but it also incorporates a milk-and-flour paste which felt very old-fashioned to me. Of course, you can fill these horns with whatever filling you like best.

STEP 2

Before serving, sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Store refrigerated in an airtight container.

STEP 3
