What's the first thing that comes to your mind when you read the title of the thread?
DW's homemade bread.

You never had poppy seed bread smothered in butter right out of the oven?

The original Hamatachen. That's how the minhag started; to eat something with seeds  in commemoration of Esther, who, while in the place, only are nuts and seeds.

ETA: Also, poppy seed are my favorite filling :)
My wife's chocolate pecan pie filling does the job quite well :)

That doesn't have a massive glob of poppy seeds in it.

Correct. Think of a cinnamon roll as a loaf of bread.

I just came across this thread, and the title intrigued me, as I lament the disappearance of the true and original Hamentaschen from the landscape.

However, even with the best filling, if the dough is gross (as in very pale and soft), they become inedible.

Interestingly, while I like poppy seeds very much, I also like sesame seeds, so at the Shabbos table I have one of each for the Challos, and the kids fight over which one should be opened first. :)  I am OK with either, but regardless of which seeds are used, I like when they're abundant, almost creating a crust of their own.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I guess it changed from sesame to poppy somewhere along the generations.

Salty or sweet? Unhulled or hulled?

ETA: Halva is sesame seeds with sugar.

Sweet. Hmm, maybe unhulled, I like that idea!

ETA: or maybe black sesame seeds!

Salty could work well with cheese IMHO.

There are several sweet variations you could do.
