This is almost identical to the Polish Butter Cookie recipe that has been handed down in my family! The only major difference is we hard boil all of the eggs. To crumble to yolks pushing them through a sieve works well. Also we not only use poppy seeds but any kind of sprinkles (red and green for christmas!) to top them. It has been a family favorite for many years! Read More

These cookies are pretty good but they taste about the same as a butter cookie. However these require some extra work so I just suggest eating a butter cookie. They also have a weird texture...I suggest mixing the poppy seeds into the batter. Read More

THE COOKED EGG YOLKS ADD A GREAT TASTE SENSATION. WE ADDED THE POPPY SEEDS TO THE COOKIE DOUGH BEFORE BAKING AND THEY WERE MOIST AND SOFT FOR THESE OLD TEETH. IS NOW ONE OF MY FAVORITE COOKIES! Read More
