I am very tough to impress with bread recipes. I think I probably have to high of a standard the way a bread should look and taste. I have to say that this recipe is perfect. The texture of the dough was very easy to shape. I didn't need all 7 1/2 cups flour, but just 6 3/4 cups. I glazed the bread with the egg wash and baked it for just 15 minutes. It was hard not to attack the oven, but it was definetly worth the wait. I can't wait to see how my family enjoys it with their dinner tonight. Hat's off to you, Caryn!

Great Challah! The dough didn't rise as much as I would have liked but I think thats somehow my fault... Everyone loved them anyway. I mixed toasted sesame seeds into the egg wash before glazing. They were really nice and made exactly 4 medium sized loaves, just as you said. Thanks Caryn!
