These were delicious-light and fluffy. I used the vanilla extract and only had 2 tbsp. of poppy seeds, but next time will use the full 1/4 cup. They turned out so pretty. I think I would like to try a lemon juice glaze on these next time but these were a hit at our family reunion just the way they are-thanks for sharing!
