  2. Now add sugar, baking soda and the poppyseeds and beat until combined

  4. Now beat in as much flour as you possibly can using your mixer, then you will stir in all remaining flour with a wooden spoon
  5. Divide your dough in half and then shape each half into a roll about 9 inches in lenghth. (should resemble a log)
  6. Wrap the logs in palstic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 to 5 hours.

  8. While cookies are still warm roll them in the confectioners sugar. Then place on wire racks to cool completely.
  9. When cookies are cooled completely roll them again in the confectioners sugar
