These are from 8-14 inches tall and have one flower per plant. The lady I got these from called them patio lilies.

No, I'm afraid not. Butter Pixie has a dark reddish stigma (the end of the thing in the center) and the stigmas on yours look more light colored. Yours may also have a few too many spots. If I am also seeing a faint reddish blush around the center, then another mark against being Butter Pixie. It's hard to tell from the photo. Some lilies are sold in a general way as "patio lilies" or "pot lilies" with no other identification associated with them.

Mine seem to have less freckles than golden pixie, but is this a possibility?

I believe the degroot photo is incorrect, it is too spotted. I have searched the internet and haven't found a reliable photograph of it. It is an old lily introduced in 1983, plenty of time for it to get mixed up in commerce.
