Homemade Poppy Seed Filling
This Homemade Poppy Seed Filling is the perfect filling for cookies, pastries and hamantaschen this Hanukkah. I love to use this filling for one of my favorite Hanukkah dessert recipes – buttery hamantaschen.
To make this poppy seed filling for cookies, start by grinding poppy seeds. Melt butter with milk, sugar, honey and salt. Beat eggs in a bowl and slowly pour in 1 cup of the hot butter mixture. Do not pour too quickly or the eggs will scramble. It should take about one minute to drizzle all of the liquid. Return the egg mixture to the saucepan and cook for 3-5 minutes until it thickly coats the back of a spoon. Whisk in the poppy seeds. Allow to come to room temperature before transferring to a tightly covered container and storing in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
