Kitchen Hack Poppy Seed Roll

This has got to be one of the biggest cheats I've ever pulled in the kitchen. I mean, two ingredients? Less than 5 minutes of prep? Oh yes. My kind of recipe. And it was great.

Kitchen Hack Poppy Seed Roll

  • 1 package puff pastry
  • 2 cans poppy seed filling   (for instance:)

1.  Allow the puff pastry to thaw on the counter. Leave it out when you put away your groceries and remember it several hours later. It will be just right.

2.  Preheat oven to 400 F.

3.  Each box of puff pastry has two sheets. Unfold one and roll it out with a rolling pin so it's a little thinner and larger. You may need to sprinkle a smidgen of flour on the counter first so it doesn't stick.

4.  Spread one can of poppy seed filling over the pastry leaving at least 1/2 inch border all around.

5.  Starting on a long edge, roll up the pastry. Pinch the ends together and pinch the edge of the rolled up pastry to the rest of the roll.

6.  Repeat for the other sheet of puff pastry.

7.  Sparingly spray some oil on a baking sheet. Transfer the rolls to the baking sheet, seam side down. Bake for 25 minutes.

8.  Transfer to a cooling rack to cool.
