While I was making Challah last night, my 6-year-old daughter Zoe, who NEVER wants to help with the Challah, asked if she could have some of the dough to make her own creation. And while I’m sure it’s against some rule for us to make fun and lively designs during the nine days leading up to Tisha B’Av, I just couldn’t squash her excitement and tell her no.
The resulting Challah included two beautiful hearts … yes those really are hearts … and a flower.
I think she did a wonderful job, and I’ll be proud to bless these artistic creations tonight before dinner.
What sort of Challah shapes do you make? Anything fun and creative that we could copy during our next baking session?
