A neighbor found this recipe for me. Haven't tried it yet but I am on my way to the store to buy poppy seeds now!

These are fabulous! The dill and cheddar flavor smell wonderful while cooking and taste so good together! These are more moist than most. Be sure to brush them generously with butter. I ate two right out of the oven. They're that good! Thanks
