These recipes were made for our family when holiday time came
along. We rarely had desert outside of Sundays, and most of the
time the desert was mom's canned fruit. At Christmas time and Easter,
especially, we had puffed wheat squares, matrimonial cake, poppyseed
roll or apple streudel.
In a bowl, mix 1 cup lukewarm water or milk and add 1 package of yeast.

In a bowl, mix:
1/4 cup sugar

rise about 1 hour. Roll out to 1/4 inch and spread liberally with
butter. Add poppyseed mixture and roll into one big roll. Pinch
