These cookies are named in honor of elegant soldiers Hussars…Maybe because they look like the buttons from their uniforms. However, Hussar cookies can be quickly and easily prepared. You can get a lot of cookies from this amount of dough so it is best to prepare them for holidays when you expecting guests.

300g all-purpose flour

100g of roasted and grind  hazelnuts

Shape a little ball out of each slice and put each ball in greased baking sheet. With a wooden spoon push a small hole in the middle. You have to do it slowly, otherwise the ball will break.
