"When invited to a Hanukkah dinner, I thought of making something appropriate. Finally we decided on a Challah bread shaped as a 6-pointed Star of David."

1 1/4 teaspoons
3 2/3 cups
active dry yeast
sesame seeds, or more if desired
I love making Challah in different shapes and different styles of braids, so of course this recipe caught my eye. I never realized how easy it is to form a Star of David! This dough was relatively easy to work with, but I think it needs a little more yeast, perhaps an extra 1/2 teaspoon, as the dough didn't rise as well as I thought it should and the bread was a little heavy. That didn't stop us from devouring the entire thing as soon as it was cool enough to eat, though! Thanks for an awesome new way to shape Challah bread.
