This report on NPR reminded me of the Mun Cookies my mom used to have us help make during snow days etc. when I was a kid. We would have to write our names in cookie dough and get to eat our names. My brother & I (and I suspect my cousins too) learned to spell our names through mun cookies.
Below is a mashup of the two recipes.
Recipe: Mun Cookies
- 3 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 cup mun (poppy seeds)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Rind of one lemon
- Mix together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, poppy seeds, & sugar).
- Whisk together the wet ingredients (oil, eggs, vanilla, & lemon rind).
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until combined.
- Chill in the refrigerator one hour.
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Either break off teaspoon size balls and flatten into round cookies, or roll out and use a cookie cutter.
- Please on a greased cookie sheet.
- Bake 10-12 minutes until lightly browned around the edges.
- Let cook ~1 minute on baking sheet then transfer to a rack to cool all the way.
