Pear Poppy Snails {Birnen Mohn Schnecken} for #10DaysofTailgating {#dairyfree #recipe}

What is a party without dessert; every party needs dessert.  Any party needs dessert whether it is at home or in a parking lot.  Right?!  Dessert can be anywhere just as long as it is portable and delicious, well that is at least what I think.  So yes,  it is the perfect time to bring Snails along…I can hear you?  Snails…Bea what are you talking about…no, not Escargot but baked snails. I call them snails because in German rolled pastries - sweet or savory - are all called Schnecken which translates to snails…

Pear Poppy Snails are the perfect dessert; fresh pears along with poppy seeds rolled into a delectable yeast dough.  Yes, sweet but not overly - sweet fresh pears meet poppy seeds meet maple syrup and cinnamon.  What do you think?  Everything is rolled into a dough that is ever so slightly crispy and firm; they are perfect with coffee and if there are leftovers after the party great early in the morning.

Pear Poppy Snails {Birnen Mohn Schnecken}

  • 1 c  milk {or your favorite milk substitute I use plain Almond milk}
  • 3-1/2 Tb butter or vegan "butter" 
  • 2-1/2 c flour
  • 1/3 c sugar
  • 2-1/2 tsp yeast
  • 1 egg
  • pinch salt
  1. Combine flour, sugar, and yeast in a large mixing bowl
  2. Slowly melt butter in milk and once it has melted mix it into the flour mixture
  3. Add egg and continue kneading until dough has formed 
  4. Cover dough with a dish cloth and place it at a warm spot to let it rise for about 45 minutes
  5. When dough has risen knead it one more time.
  6. Put plenty of flour onto your work area and roll the dough out into a large square.  Place the  the rolled out dough  on a kitchen towel {or a couple} and cover it with another kitchen towel while you are preparing the filling
Filling + Glaze
***preheat oven to 400 F***; line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper
  • 3 pears, peeled, cored, and cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 TB lemon juice
  • 1/3 C poppy seeds
  • 1/4 C plain almond milk {or other preferred milk}
  • 1/4 maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 C powdered sugar {for glaze}
  • 2 TB lemon juice {for galze}
  1. Drizzle lemon juice over the pears and mix it up
  2. Combine poppy seeds with "milk", maple syrup and cinnamon. Gently heat the combination covered in a pot for about 5 minutes - do not bring it to a boil.  After about 5 minutes let it cool down for another 5 minutes or so.
  3. Spread the poppy seed mass thinly over the prepared dough until everything but the edges are covered
  4. Spread the pears evenly over the poppy seed mass
  5. Working from front to back, carefully roll the dough tightly to the back end until you have one large roll
  6. Using a sharp kitchen knife cut 1/2" slices - or a little thicker - and place the individual slices on the prepared cookie sheet.
  7. Once the entire roll has been cut cover the cookie sheets with a kitchen towel and let rise for another 15 minutes
  8. Remove kitchen towel from the cookie sheets and place the rolls into the oven.  Bake for about 15 minutes and let the snails cool down
  9. Prepare the glaze by combining the powdered sugar with the lemon juice
  10. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled down  Pear Poppy Snails

Enjoy and have fun!
