Some people cannot imagine eating hamentashen filled with anything other than poppy seed filling, whereas other people can’t stand the texture and flavor of poppy seeds. We can all agree, however, that poppy seeds can make both savory and sweet pastries much more interesting. You can sprinkle them on top of breads or mix them into the batter of a yummy cake. The flavor that explodes in your mouth when you bite into a poppy seed is just spectacular.

Whether you’re using dense, heavy poppy seed filling, or sprinkling the seeds sparsely on top of baked goods, their flavor is wonderful. But make sure that you’re using fresh, high-quality poppy seeds. Below, you will find a number of recipes that include poppy seeds. If you don’t already have a stash at home, I highly recommend making the effort to go buy some so you can prepare one of these treats for your friends and family.
