I'm finally sharing a recipe of an enemy of mine - the Poppy Seed Buns aka Piroshki. I have a love and hate relationship with them. We have a Russian bakery a few minutes away from home and each time I drive by that place, I'm extremely tempted to stop by for those Poppy Seed Buns. Gotta be honest, I probably give in about 80% of the time...at least not 100%; the other 20% I probably have something else baking at home.
There is something about the way those buns are rolled into a spiral shape, that causes the layers to twist into different directions, resulting in a very unique dough texture.
