These are the ingredients I use to make a poppyseed tea ring. I didn't include detailed directions on how to make the dough by hand since I just place all of the ingredients in a breadmaker and come back an hour and a half later to dought that's ready to use. (If you want the steps to mixing the dough, email me). Instead, Ron and I wanted to show the steps needed to create the braided look of the tea ring. It makes so much more sense to just see each step instead of trying to listen to me describe it, so for Dad, Grampa Theis, Stephie, and anyone else who might be interested...here it is!
Zest an orange, and then squeeze 1 tablespoon of juice from the orange. Mix the zest and juice with sugar in a bowl. Add the poppyseed pie filling and mix thoroughly. [If you don't have an orange, use a lemon. It has a slightly different--though also good--taste.]
Once the dough has finished rising, dust your work surface with flour, plop down the dough and begin rolling...
