Shamrock Challies

Step 1: Divide the dough into 8 pieces.

Step 2: Roll out each piece until it is about 12 inches long.

Step 3 (optional): If you want to fill you strand, use a rolling pin to flatten each strand and then add your filling and pinch each strand closed.

Step 4: Make one loop with the strand

Step 5: Make another loop next to the last one.

Step 6: Make one last loop and tuck the excess behind the shamrock.

Step 7: Place them close together on a buttered cookie sheet.

Step 9: Let dough rise about 30 minutes in a warm place

Step 10: Baste with egg wash (1 egg + 1/2 tbsp water).

Step 11: Bake for about 22 minutes at 350 degrees. Cover your challies with foil when it starts to brown to keep the challah cooking on the inside without changing color.
