Gramma Mollie’s Poppy Seed-Onion Pletzl Cookies
2 Cups flour
1/2 Cup sugar
1/4 Cup poppy seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 Cup of vegetable oil
1/4 Cup of *cold* water
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients, then add liquids. Blend well, and let stand for one hour.
Divide dough in half, and roll (on wax paper or lightly floured board) til you have a sheet about 1/8" thin. Place on a cookie sheet and using a pizza cutter or knife, cut diagonally into diamonds (repeatedly criss-crossing sheet.) You *can* cut them with a cookie cutter or water- glass into rounds, but this is a quick, virtually fool-proof method.
Bake in 400 degree oven 10 to 20 minutes, depending on your oven. Cookies should be a dark tan color.
Onion Pletzl Cookies: Using above recipe, add a medium to large chopped onion to dough before letting it sit, and bake as above.
