The strangest cookie I've ever made... I found this recipe in a high school reference book about world countries. My first problem was finding a whole pound of poppy seeds. Then I couldn't grind them into a paste. My little Black and Decker food chopper did NOTHING to the teeny seeds. I don't have a blender, but I don't know if that would even work. Anyway, I should have tried harder to make a paste, but I thought I'd try using the whole poppy seed. That didn't work at all. A paste would have been 100 times better...you definitely need to make a paste! I'm not sure what color they'll turn out to be when made correctly. Mine didn't taste too bad after being dusted with sugar. I may try making these again - correctly!!! Anyone who wants a challenge (or something different - especially a cookie that's not too sweet) should try making these.
