Recipe by Debbie Druga
"This is a very simple cream filling. It can be frozen, and will not weep! I usually double the recipe for 1 batch of lady locks (approximately 120 cookies.) Use a pastry bag to fill cookies. You can freeze the cookies after filling."

This is THE BEST filling for lady locks. I made them all summer long for graduation parties, and a 4th of July picnic. People couldn't get enough of them. They loved that the filling wasn't too sweet. It's more like a pudding that DOES NOT weep after being frozen. THE PEFECT FILLING! YUMMY!
Thank you for sharing this recipe. It will be a family favorite for years to come.
Thought this would be good since it had pudding in the filling, but it didn't work on a few levels and came out with too much of a shortening flavor. I even added some vanilla and some powered sugar to try to cut the shortening taste, but it still didn't mask it. Also, I was confused on the recipe because it said to use 1 cup of milk and the directions on the pudding said to use 2 cups. Should I have gone by the pudding drections instead of only using 1 cup? I may try it again but using the milk qty on the pudding box and replacing 1/2 of the shortening with butter. Good luck!
I've never made Lady Locks before and hubby requested them. So glad i found this recipe! However i do not have the forms so here's what i did - at home depot had them cut a dowel rod (sorry not sure on size, went by guessing!) anyway, they cut it into 4-5 inch pieces. I wrapped these in aluminum foil and sprayed with baking pam. Wrapped pre-made pastry puff around them and baked them @ 400 for roughly 12 minutes. With filling these are perfection!
This is very easy and very good. Not too sweet--but sweet enough.
froze very well. Easy to make
best filling I have used.....not too sweet and it does not weep at all. Thanks
I have been making ladylocks for at least 20 years. i was disappointed in the filling. It was easy to make and held it's shape, but it tasted like shortening..no flavor at all. the taste just stays in your mouth..very greasy.
