  • 2
    Shape dough into 1-inch balls; arrange 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until edges are set and light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool 10 minutes.

Expert Tips

  • Be sure to use fresh poppy seed in your recipe. Due to their high oil content, they tend to go rancid quickly if not stored properly. Fresh poppy seed may be stored in airtight container in refrigerator 3 to 6 months or in freezer up to 1 year.
  • Store cookies loosely covered at room temperature.
