I was looking for poppy seed recipes as part of my personal pantry challenge and found this one on the Cooking Light website. Looked yummy enough to share.

Yummy, yummy, yummy!! I did run into a problem with the dough being a little dry, and not wanting to come together. I added 1/3 cup milk, and an additional 1 teaspoon of almond extract. I also used butter in place of the oleo. Turned out nice and crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. For 'decoration', I also added a couple slivered almonds on top. Nice treat! Thanks for posting! :)
