Makivnyk is a sweet roll with a poppy seed filling traditionally made for Ukrainian Christmas.
Baba grew poppies in her garden. In the Fall, the dried pods would be broken, and the seeds collected for baking. As a little girl, it was a treat for me to go into the garden, break open a pod and eat the seeds.
