Great old fashion recipe,but if you want it a little bit sweeter and more modern in taste,(like the canned poppy seed) all you need to do is add corn syrup.I made a double batch and added 1/2 a cup. Adding honey also makes it great too!THRILLED with this recipe either way!
I used this recipe for kolache and it turned out great! My husband is Czech and he said it was just how it's supposed to be.
This is wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I live in Northern Canada and cannot find prepackaged poppy seed filling to make for kolaches. I'm am eternally greatful!
FABULOUS !! Having many exchange students in the house over the past few years, from all over Europe, this filling reminded them all of grandma back home. Thanks Hepzibah!
This recipe is perfect. Much better than canned poppy seed filling. I didn't change a thing. I combined the filling with crushed walnuts . I made a sweet dough and rolled the filling up in the dough to make my family's traditional Christmas poppy seed rolls.
