Poppy seed butter cookies

Poppy seed butter cookiesI hoped to try more cookie recipes this year, but those three will need to do.

Those poppy seed butter cookies are very old school, with just a bit of crunch of poppy seeds. Butter makes tiny layers and they just melt in your mouth. I don’t think there is more beautiful smell then one of butter. I once tried a wine that I liked a lot and then a wine guy said it had notes of butter :D
