Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Spoonacular is not responsible for any adverse effects or damages that occur because of your use of the website or any information it provides (e.g. after cooking/consuming a recipe on spoonacular.com or on any of the sites we link to, after reading information from articles or shared via social media, etc.)

Instructions

  1. Mix warm milk, sugar and yeast in small bowl until yeast dissolves. Set aside.
  2. Blend flour, baking powder, salt and lemon zest in large bowl of electric mixer. Add butter and blend until mixture is crumbly. Beat egg, egg yolk and vanilla in small bowl. Add to flour mixture alternately with milk mixture and blend until dough comes together.
  3. Transfer dough to floured board; divide dough into 4 parts. Knead each part into flat disc, then wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
  4. Spoon poppy seed filling into pastry bag. Blend sugar and nuts in small bowl. Set aside.
  5. Roll each disc of dough into thin sheet large enough to fit into a 13- by 9-inch baking dish. Trim each sheet dough to fit dish. (Reserve trimmings for Poppy Seed Strudel, if desired.) Arrange 1 sheet dough in bottom of baking dish.
  6. Pipe half filling onto pastry (or can be spread using spoon). Spread poppy seed filling evenly over sheet of dough. Cover with second sheet of dough, and sprinkle with 1 cup walnut filling. Arrange sheet of dough on top and repeat with layer of poppy seed filling. Top with remaining sheet of dough. Cover with kitchen towel and let stand 30 minutes.
  7. Brush top with egg yolk mixture. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown, about 45 minutes. While hot, cut into 24 squares. Cool in pan. (To freeze, wrap each pastry in plastic wrap then foil. Store in resealable plastic bags in freezer.)
  8. This recipe yields 24 pastries.
  9. Comments: Make the Poppy Seed Pastries in advance and store them in the freezer. At serving time, just defrost them; they will stay crisp and everyone will think they were freshly baked. Make extra pastries to follow the Purim tradition of sharing (shalach manos) and give a basket of these delicious confections as gifts to family and friends.
