This is a light delicious addition to the Christmas Cookie Platters I make up as gifts. I am a huge fan of poppyseeds and so therefore a big fan of these. I got this recipe from a little cookbook a few years back. Still have the cookbook with my little changes and notes written in it : ) I use a bit of anise in my recipe. You can omit this completely or you can add almond or lemon instead.
