Rosh Hashanah...better late than never !

I had several of these ordered so couldn't cut them. I made one more for our cookout tonight. Wonderful family dinner by the pool. The Challah was so tender and slightly sweet with the addition of some extra honey and the golden raisins.

trailrunner.    I've been making French toast with our left overs.  Glad to see your RH Challah efforts pay off so well.

Happy New Year,

Not even a crumb left DB  ! It was a 1 1/2 # loaf. We didn't even save a slice for my chef son who had to work !!  I had to pull out a loaf of buttermilk bread to make sure he had a treat too :) 

Varda the touch of honey in the glaze is what did it ....will cont. to do that.....first time in over 30yrs of making challah that I have tried it . Nice to learn something new. Your Challot were so pretty too . c
