  • 100g butter
  • 100g honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g hazelnuts (finely chopped or crushed)
  • 200g flour


Cream together the butter, honey and eggs.

Stir in the hazelnuts and flour. Kneed together to form a slightly sticky dough.

Split the mixture into even sized amounts. Roll into balls and squash each ball as flat as possible.

Cook for a few minutes on each side on a hot griddle or frying pan. Watch them carefully, or they will burn.

Alternatively heat your oven to 170 degrees and cook in the centre of the oven for approx 10 to 15 minutes, until firm and golden in colour

Leave to cool fully before eating, as they will firm up when cool.
