    @tjeddy: Thanks for your comment. I will try making the glaze without the poppy seeds, and then sprinkling them after glazing.

    The flavor was great, but there was some difficulty with the glaze. Once dipping the cookie and waiting for the drips to drop, the poppy seeds ran with it. Maybe a thicker glaze would have helped, but they took forever to dry enough to store. With all this in mind, I received a lot of compliments on them.
