  • Meanwhile, make the poppy filling:
  • Grind the poppy seeds in a blender with about half the cream. Place the poppy seed mixture and the remaining cream in a heavy saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and stir in the Swerve and the almond extract. Simmer for a minute or two.  It will thicken as it cools.
  • Preheat oven to 375*
  • After resting, roll dough into a 12 X 12 or so rectangle. Divide dough into 12 squares.  Using your thumb make an indent in the squares.  Spoon a healthy teaspoon or so into the thumbprint.
  • Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
  • Brush with egg wash.  Bake on a parchment lined sheet pan, 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and delicious! Voila! Enjoy your Keto Poppy Seed Kolaches!
