DIRECTIONS

  • For the dough: Beat the butter with the sugar until light and creamy. Beat in the vanilla and egg yolks. Sift over the flour, stir in, then work into a dough with your hands. Knead until smooth. Put in plastic wrap and chill while fixing the filling.
  • For the filling: Put the poppy seeds, honey, sugar, lemon rind and juice into a pan with 4 tbl water and bring to the boil, stirring. Remove from the heat and beat in the almonds, egg and raisins. Cool while working with dough.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 and line two large baking sheets with baking parchment paper. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/8" thickness. Using a plain round 3" cutter, stamp out rounds.
  • Place a heaped teaspoon of filling on each round. Brush the edges with beaten egg, then bring the sides to the center to form a tricorn shape. Seal the edges together well and place on prepared baking sheets, spaced slightly apart.
  • Brush with beaten egg and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool.
