A recent tradition has evolved for challah makers during the week after Pesach, when one may shape their challah into a shlissel or a key in order to bring good fortune.  Some of us took on this shaping challenge, eager to have our hands back in the dough we love after the break from Passover. Other Challah Time bakers ventured to make their own creations while we explored the shlissel. Take a look below at some of the Challah Time baker's work from this past week. And the one above, well, that's Nancy's beauty--she did it!!

Kathy's Shlissel Challah

Kathy's Notes: I had good intentions to make the shlissel challah, but the use of duck eggs made the dough too crumbly. It was difficult to braid. The color and flavor were great. Was a fun experiment.

And here's the almond torte recipe Kathy promised Ellen, who was very interested in a non-chocolate dessert: .
