These pastries are sometimes also referred as cookies. In Hungary they are known as either patko or kifli, which translated to either crescent shaped or horseshoe shaped :)
The common filling are either walnut or poppy seeds.
They are most often found close to and/or on Christmas, although obviously you can bake them anytime, or get them at the bakeries any time, however they are associated with Christmas usually :D
