Grandma's Poppy Seed Cookies

The weather has been very strange lately. We went from snow to spring flowers in a single day, the day that Sword set off for grandma's house.

Then we had so much rain, that the ditches got flooded.

But when Sword came back yesterday afternoon, bearing gifts from grandma, there was a lull between storms and the birds were rejoicing.

Soon after that short moment of glory, it started raining again.

But for that one moment nature was at peace.

My mother sent along with Sword her famous poppy seed cookies. Bow and I had some with breakfast this morning.

The cookies are made with lots of butter and a small amount of sugar, so they are not particularly sweet. But they are my favorite cookies!

This is my mother's own recipe, but the closest thing available commercially would be shortbread.

Bow was very dainty in his sampling of the cookies.

The reason it's so dark in the video is that we just started Daylight Savings Time. I don't see that it saves anything, especially in a town where everything closes at five. But there's nothing like your favorite cookies to help cheer you up when you have to get up and eat breakfast in the dark.
