Challah Dogs

Recipe by Shannon Sarna

Challah Dogs

Challah wrapped hot dogs were one of my very first challah experiments, and from day one they were a huge hit. I make challah dogs for almost every party or family event. They are crowd- pleasing like pigs in blankets, but just a little more indulgent. I typically use an all-beef kosher hot dog, but

Pumpkin Chocolate Hazelnut Rugelach

Recipe by Shannon Sarna

Pumpkin Chocolate Hazelnut Rugelach
