“Takes me back to childhood,” says Dave Hopkins. “I added a little garlic powder.”
“My tip is to brush them with a beaten egg (for an egg wash) and then sprinkle with either sesame seeds or poppy seeds,” according to khk. “The egg wash makes them shiny and also helps the seeds stick. These were a big hit at our party.”
“Simple and easy and just like my grandmother used to make,” raves Saeraphym.
