Poppy Seed Biscuits

, ,

Because I love poppy seeds so much, I adapted these Poppy Seed Biscuits from the large Poppy Seed Pastry (rolls) and made them into Christmas biscuits.

A simple shortcrust pastry with a poppy seed filling and formed into a roll. When it has cooled or frozen properly, you can cut it into slices.

You can also prepare these biscuits in advance and take them out of the freezer when needed and bake them fresh. Also very practical!
