Planning to dip apples and challah in honey on Rosh Hashanah? How about dipping a piece of challah stuffed with apple chunks covered with cinnamon? Yum!
Montreal Mom, a website by Tanya Toledano that offers valuable tips, tools, guides, recipes, and jmuch more to moms, posted a recipe this week for a new twist on challah for Rosh Hashanah. It's an apple cinnamon pull-apart challah that's so easy to make, it's a fun activity to share with the kids and grandkids. And though making challah can be a time-consuming and messy process, the video that Tanya posted shows how easy it can be, especially if you start with frozen challah dough that you don't have to make from scratch.
We decided to give it a try and bought a box of Kinneret frozen round challah dough (15 oz.) and followed the instructions on the box. We also followed Tanya's instructions, but doubled the cinnamon to accommodate the size of the challah (her video uses 8 oz. of dough). We let the frozen challah defrost for 6 hours and then flattened it, made a pouch, and stuffed it with a Macintosh apple cut into small chunks and rolled in cinnamon with a touch of sugar. All we had to do then was twist off five balls of dough, each with some apples in them, position them in a round aluminum pan, and bake for about 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven. The result: You can see it in the photo above. It was delicious! Give it a try for a sweet New Year!
