Wasn't it you who gave me the useful look-up tip TL? Works a treat! (But not with Ladylocks apparently!)

It is considered a cookie. You make dough and wrap it around a spindle, bake, and slide off the spindle to cool. Once cool, you mix a creamy filling and shoot it into the cookie. Hopefully the picture I attached will show it.

Looks delicious, but I don't understand the name?

They look like something we would call a "cream horn". Are they cone-shaped?

Hey, these things are only simple when you know them! (And yes, that was what I meant! )

[QUOTE="Rocket_J_Dawg;1314176"] That's to give the lard butt with the steamer sized carry on enough time to try to jam into the overhead directly above where your seat is. Sorry, that was my outdoor voice.[/QUOTE

Rofl......politically incorrect, but funny as truth often is!

You need a better hiding place I had to hide my funnels from DH because he was taking them for outdoor use.

They are called different names in different parts of the country, and obviously in other countries. The reason they are called Ladylocks around here is because when you wrap the dough around the spindle it resembles those long curls that were a popular hairdo at one time. Some people call them Ladyfingers because they are about the size of a little finger. Some people make them cone-shaped, but mine are straight. You can buy the metal forms to wrap them on, but it's very popular to wrap them around clothespins. Some might be too young to remember clothespins. LOL They were used when people used to hang their laundry outside to dry. You don't use the ones with the spring in them, but the straight ones. You wrap aluminum foil around them, then wrap the dough around them. There are a variety of fillings you can use in them. One time my husband made some big spindles for me to use from old broom handles. I wrapped aluminum foil around them the same as I do with the clothespins. They turned out really big, like some you see in a bakery. They are very time consuming to make.

They look to me like a lady's old fashioned ringlets.
