It is hard to review something you have never had. I think I did this correctly. I had a big problem grinding the seeds in the blender after I scalded them. I just added the other ingredients and did the best I could. It smelled nice and tasted pretty good. I used it in your Recipe #88883. It was probably more runny than what I needed to get it rolled up in my dough. I really don't know. Honestly, more work than I would want it to be. If there had been a can of the filling within 50 miles I would have bought that. Anyway, I tried it. Glad I did. A true ZWT4 experience. Thanks!

Poppy seed filling is not always my first choice but this recipe I really enjoyed. Didnt have cheesecloth so I placed a double layer of paper towel in my colander to strain poppyseeds. A nice flavor flavor to this filling, not overly sweet, and easy to make. I did use this filling with Rita's sweet dough recipe.

I followed this exactly and used in another dough recipe. It was very easy (it was my very first attempt!) and turned out delicious. My Polish father loved it!
