This year, I was inspired by a Saveur Magazine recipe for Challot (Challah Knots). I still wanted to add apples to the recipe, and considered a few options. And then a miracle happened - I'm not even joking. I got an invitation from Jamie Peha to sit-in on her radio show - Table Talk Radio. You're going to have to check out the site later to see what happened. For now, let's just say that I returned home after a fun one-hour show with a box of apples and an assignment.
I went ahead and used the ingredients for the dough, as written in Saveur, but changed some of the methodology, directions and the final few steps in the directions. I added caramelized apples, and created apple rolls, instead of challah knots. And finally, instead of baking these delights in a single baking pan, I used my trusted muffin tin pan.
