Challot (Challah Knots) | These fluffy, brioche-like rolls are traditionally served on Jewish holidays, but they're perfect for any occasion. This recipe first appeared in our October 2011 issue along with Katie Robbins's story Season of Rejoicing. | From: saveur.com
I have never met a challah I did not like. There is simply something magical about the puffed, egg-enriched loaves that sit at the center of many Jewish holiday meals and that make an extravagant base for French toast. And yet as a kid, I would count down the days to Rosh Hashanah when my mom would bring home challah baked specially for the holiday.
