Microwave Poppyseed Filling Recipe


Poppyseed filling is traditional for Hamantashen, the three-cornered cookies traditionally served at Purim celebrations, and is also delicious as a filling in pinwheel cookies and thumbprint cookies. Danish Pastry recipes often call for a poppyseed filling, and this Microwave Poppyseed Filling is very easy. Since itís done in the microwave, itís also very fast. It can be made several days ahead and refrigerated until youíre ready to use it. You may also freeze it in an airtight container for several months.

If you bake often, you may find it advantageous to purchase an inexpensive coffee grinder to be used exclusively for spices. That way, you can purchase whole spices (which last much longer than those already ground) and grind them fresh for each recipe. Thatís what I use for grinding my poppy seeds for this recipe, however, it can also be done in a mortar and pestle.

Microwave Poppy seed Filling


About 2 1/2 cups filling

1 cup poppy seeds
3/4 cup sugar
Zest of 1 lemon
Zest of 1 orange
6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup hottest tap water
6 tablespoons softened butter
3/4 cup raisins
  1. Grind the poppy seeds in a spice grinder 2-3 tablespoons at a time, transferring them to a microwaveable container after they are ground.

  2. Alternately, grind the poppy seeds in a mortar and pestle.

  3. Add the sugar, lemon and orange zest, lemon juice, water, butter, and raisins.

  4. Microwave for 5 minutes; the mixture will be boiling.

  5. Whisk the mixture until smooth.

  6. Return the mixture to the microwave and cook 2-3 more minutes or until slightly thickened.

  7. Stir well, then cool thoroughly.

  8. The mixture will continue to thicken as it cools.
