Six Strand Challah

The six strand challah makes for such a pretty braid, try it out for yourself!

Step 1: Divide the challah into 6 equally sized pieces.

Step 2: Roll out each strand.

Step 3 (optional): Flatten the strands with a rolling pin and add filling. Pinch the strands closed.

Step 4: Pinch the strands together at the top.

Step 5: Bring strand 2 over to the left.

Step 6: Bring strand 1 to the center between strands 4&5.

Step 7: Bring strand 6 to the right.

Step 8: Bring strand 2 to the center between strand 1&4.

Step 9: Repeat steps 5-8 until you run out of dough. The end is the hardest part, but try to make it look as clean as possible by tucking in the ends. I like to smush the challah as well for a better look.

Bake for about 35 minutes at 350 degrees. You will need to cover the challah with foil in the oven because this is a taller challah. The foil will allow the challah to keep cooking internally without overcooking the outside.
