Poppy Seed pastries

You may be thinking of kolaches, (also spelled kolace, kolach, or kolacky, from the Czech and Slovak plural koláče.) My grandmother used to make these with the poppyseed filling, my mother has always made them with prune or apricot. My mother now lives in a town that celebrates 'Czech Days' by having a festival where hundreds of the women that live in the town all make kolaches. They make 10's of thousands of them and sell them to all the visitors from surrounding states that come to the festival. My family was originally from Bohemia, (now Czech Republic.)
