I was looking for a cookie recipe to use up some extra egg yolks I had in the refrigerator. I doubled the recipe and used half butter/half margarine. Also I only used half the amount of poppy seeds and that seemed to be plenty. This was a light delicious little cookie. However I did find it to be a bit too crumbly. Upon my first bite the whole thing practically shattered! Did I flatten it too thinly? Read More

It would be a good cookie I think with Tea. But I don't like tea...was trying to use up some Poppy seeds and this sounded interesting. They were OK nothing to write home about. Read More

Tasted great! I didn't put any frosting/icing on them and they were totally yummy! I agree they were crumbly but I don't mind my cookies light fluffy and falling apart in your mouth... I do wonder though if you used the entire egg (instead of just the yolks) would that make them more firm? I'll have to try that next time. Read More

These are now my all-time favorite Christmas cookie! They are tender and light and hold their shape perfectly. They are also very versatile. I used this same batter for thumbprints. Read More

I just made these cookies and they were fine but a little plain - a basic sugar cookie with some poppy seeds for added texture. They did come out nice and crisp. I probably won't make them again - they were not bad in any way but somehow not quite flavorful enough. Read More

I liked these a lot. The poppyseed taste is subtle yet makes them a little different and more "elegant" than ordinary butter cookies. Read More

Tastes great but the texture is too crumbly for me. I bit into a cookie and it shattered in my mouth! Nevertheless tastes great. Read More
