Recipe of the Month: Virginia’s PB & J Challah


Step 1:

Use your challah recipe to make plain challah dough.

Step 2:

For each strand of challah:

  • Roll out a strand of dough.
  • Flatten the strand.
  • Spread a layer of peanut butter on the strand. Be sure to spread the peanut butter in the middle of the strand leaving untouched dough on both sides.
  • Spread a layer of jelly on top of the peanut butter.
  • Starting at one end of the strand, fold the dough over itself to enclose the peanut butter and jelly within the strand.
