    1       c            Poppy seed
      1/2   c            Milk
      1/4   c            Honey

    1       d            Cinnamon
   Mix the first five ingredients and the lemon peel; cut
   in the butter until mixture is crumbly.  Combine the
   egg, lemon juice and water to add to the flour
   mixture.  Knead lightly into a ball; divide into 8
   parts. Roll out each part on a floured board until it
   is 1/4 inch thick, then cut into 4 inch square.  Spoon
   about 1 teaspoon Poppy Seed Filling into the center of
   each square.  Bring two ends together to form a
   cylinder. Pinch together to seal.  Place on a greased
   baking sheet and brush with milk. Bake at 350 F for
   15-20 minutes.
   FILLING: Combine all ingredients in a saucepan; cook
   over low heat until thick, stirring often.  Cool and
   it’s ready to use.
   NOTE: Any cooked fruit or jam may be used instead of
   Poppy Seed Filling.
