Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

Cakes and Cookies

I’m sure most of you know Starbuck’s famous lemon-poppy seed loaf. I love that cake! It’s one of my favorites.
While organizing my spices I bumped into a bag of poppy seeds and so I decided to make the famous loaf. I looked through my recipes and couldn’t find it, but I was still determined I am going to make something of these poppy seeds. I couldn’t care less that it’s 10pm on a weekday. My mind was set.

So I brainstormed for a couple of minutes and then I decided I’d come up with a recipe of my own. A new one, that will give me a similar taste to the famous loaf in much less time. And this is how these cookies were born 🙂
They are really good, easy and fast to make and have that yummy lemony flavor combined with the poppy seeds. Simply great. Or as we say in Hebrew “Mashu-Mashu” 🙂
