This traditional poppyseed filling recipe is perfect for Czech koláče or sweet rolls. But it can be used in any pastry calling for poppyseed filling, like kołaczki or drozdzówki. This filling recipe calls for freshly ground poppyseeds using a poppyseed grinder. A food processor won't produce the same results, but I've also had good luck with the Waring Spice Grinder.
