Ozen Oh Man2 - Lemon Curd and Poppyseed

Poppyseed filling:
150g poppyseed grinded
Zest of 2 lemons
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tbps honey
3 tbps of sugar
1/8 tsp salt
180 ml of milk
Vanilla paste/extract
1/4 cup of crushed biscuits

1. Mix and heat all but the biscuits in pan till thick

2. Take off heat. Add biscuits. Allow to cool.
After making your own poppyseed filing you'll never buy another.  Homemade is sooo much superior than bought.  The Lemon takes it to a totally different dimension.

Poppyseed Dough/Pastry:

Pre-heat oven 180c
2/3 cup Oil
1 cup Sugar
4 cups Plain Flour
1/3 cup Poppyseeds
2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Salt
2 Large Eggs
1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
1/2 orange juice
Zest of Lemon/orange
2 Tbp Brandy (optional)

Whisk egg, add sugar whisk till pale.
Add oil, whisk.
Add Vanilla, whisk.
Add Zest, mix.
Add Flour, B. powder, Salt.  Poppyseed. Mix
Add juice till soft dough.  Don't worry if it's quite soft, it will stiffen up when chilled.
Refridgerate till cool and manageable.
Perhaps because oil is used and not butter, the dough softens up very fast out of the refridgerator.
So work quickly here.  Quarter the dough keep the rest in the fridge till needed.
Roll out this quarter, cut into smallest rounds,  drop small amount of filling in centre and pinch sides.
Bake in pre-heated 180'c oven till done.

I usually make half this amount at a time.
