Ozen oh man!

Those Triangular thingys with a wierd name

So what they didn't turn out like in the cooking books..or in the shops, no-one can say photoshop or false play here. This is the real stuff! warts and all!

Fact is they were D E L -licking-L I C I O U S!!

Next time think I will wet the sides as well as pinch them to obedience!

OK, filling first, thought I would cheat and fill it with dates stuff, but frankly the poppyseed filling was so delicious! so much better than in the shops!

The lemon zest in the poppyseed filling is great!
And the orange zest in the pastry G E N I U S!

Poppyseed filling:
150g poppyseed grinded
Zest of 2 lemons
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tbps honey
3 tbps of sugar
1/8 tsp salt

Note: I think the biscuit recipe contains too much fat.  I found a much more successful cookie recipe Click here
