Poppy Seed Rolls


I am writing this post rather quickly.  We are getting ready to head out of the house for a couple days, but I didn’t want to leave you guys hanging.

Part of my cookie baking marathon was these, my absolute favorite cookie EVER!, Poppy Seed Rolls.  I know, they don’t sound like a cookie, but they are.  I could make my-self sick eating too many of these.  They are that good.  This is my first year really perfecting the recipe.  My mom and Grandma make them all the time.  It took me a while to get the hang of it.  Not because it is difficult, it is one of those family recipes that never gets all the tricks written down.  Well, I am writing it down and sharing it with you.

Sorry there aren’t more pictures.  I had a huge mess in my kitchen! That is what happens when you multi-task and try to make 4 different kinds of cookies at once.  Needless to say.  My cookie recipes for the next couple days will not have a ton of pictures.

    We cheated one year and used crescent rolls when we were making lots of cookies for the nursing home visit for the boy scouts. When we put them in the oven we sprinkled a little sugar on top to add a little “sweetness” to the dough.
