Old Fashioned Poppy Seed Cookies for Purim

Old Fashioned Poppy Seed Cookies for Purim

Giora Shimoni
If you have 20 free minutes in the days leading up to Purim, make a batch of these Poppy Seed cookies and stick them in your freezer. Then you can pull them out on Purim day to serve for dessert at the end of the Purim meal or you can put them in your Purim food baskets. And when it isn't Purim, these cookies go well with a cup of milk, tea or coffee.

Just like Kaufman's bakery, Member Bobcat81

This recipe is just what I was looking for! The cookies are so similar to those I grew up with from Kaufman's bakery! Simple, easy to make, no need to cut them out, just make one big square in a pan and cut them later. No clue why the first reviewer did not like these.
