Choereg (Armenian Easter Bread) Recipe - Ok...so my mother would just kill me if she knew I made our family recipe for Choereg public.  But my policy is 'why keep a good thing to myself'. Choereg is a traditional, slightly sweet bread, especially made for Easter.  It is delicious for breakfast with a nice cup of coffee. It takes some level of skill, but anyone used to handling yeast should not have a problem.  You can find Mahleb at Middle Eastern grocery stores, especially around Easter. It will be with the spices.  Please do not omit it, as this is what gives it its distinctive flavour and aroma.
