    I so read this wrong . . . I thought you meant that the food had little taste, and I was wondering why you were posting it then! After reading the recipe, I understand that you had to try just a little taste of it.

    I may try the recipe with making my own cookie dough for the crust. I guess I'm kind of a baking "snob" or purist. I don't use cake mixes, premade cookies etc (except for pie crust!). Partly because I don't like to, partly because once I finally remember to buy the mix or whatever at the grocery store, then in the meantime I've lost the recipe that I've bought it for and I finally end up throwing it away. This does look and sound delish though, hence trying it with my own dough for the crust.

    I agree LL. You could easily make your own dough for the crust!

    I know..you and me both..the only thing that has saved me is the fact that I just have not bought any of the ingredients to bake anything yet..unfortunately I know I will not entirely escape because we are hosting two parties next week and I must provide food like a good hostess.:(

    I was told to add sprinkles or sugar after they have been taken out. As long as they are warm the sugar will stay put.

    I've made these for the last two years and they go over well.

    Lemon-Poppy Seed Melts

    1/2 cup butter
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 Tbsp poppy seeds
    1/8 tsp baking soda
    1 egg yolk
    1 Tbsp milk
    2 tsp lemon zest
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    1 1/2 cups flour
    1 cup sifted powdered sugar

    In medium bowl, beat butter on medium to high for 30 seconds. Add the 1/2 cup sugar, poppy seed and baking soda. Beat until combined, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in the egg yolk, milk, lemon zest and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour.

    Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a 9" long roll. Wrap each roll in waxed paper. Chill for 4 to 24 hours (I put into a cardboard tube from paper towels so they don't get flat on one side.)

    Using a sharp knife, cut dough into 1/2" slices. Place slices 1" apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 7 to 9 minutes or until the edges are firm and bottom of cookies are lightly browned.

    Place powdered sugar in a plastic bag. While cookies are still warm, place several at a time into the bag and shake gently until coated. Transfer to a wire rack. When completely cool, gently shake cookies again in the powdered sugar.

    (Note: If you are going to freeze these, do not put powdered sugar on them until after you have thawed them.)
