Poppy Seed pastries

I'm looking too - for the German Mohn Schnitten. The Hamantaschen is more like a shortbread cookie dough than a yeast-based pastry dough, but the filling is awesome. The Danish Pastry in Watertown, MA or anywhere where there is one does something close but not enough filling - just a schmear. I found some Czech Kolaches - made with yeast that I've yet to try. I really want to BUY them first somewhere, and then try to make them. Haven't been to Germany in 30 years, so I'm not sure if I want more more yeasty and bready like a cinnamon role or buttery/flaky like a croissant (which are a lot of work!). The Danish pastry is a hybrid - flaky, but not buttery. Let me know if you find a good recipe PLEEZ.
