The Best Kind of Roses are Challah Roses

Winter is the perfect time for honing your baking skills and getting creative with hot cocoa or perhaps mulled wine. We’ve been talking a lot about babka these days, but intricate challah, as recently discussed at Food 52, certainly deserves some spotlight, too!

 >

To make your challah bouquet, prepare your favorite challah dough. After it rises, roll out the dough, and follow a recipe for shaping challah roses. There are a few different ways to approach it — you can fill the roses with a sweet filling, or you can wrap the challah into roses without filling them (above).

If roses aren’t your thing, we’re sure you can twist and shape challah into just about anything — treeshearts, and even birds! We’d love to see what you come up with — just tag your challah creations with @jewishfood and #noshthis.
