Challah stuffed with apples, cinnamon, applesauce and a drizzle of honey and then shaped into a TURBAN.

What you need:

Sheet pan, silpat/silicone mat or parchment paper, sharp knife, rolling pin

Ingredients:

-  one recipe basic challah dough

-  2 apples - peeled, cored and chopped finely - about 2 cups

-  2 cups applesauce

-  2 tsp cinnamon mixed with 4 tsp white or brown sugar

-  honey

-  egg wash - 1 egg mixed with 1 TB cream, half&half, or milk

Instructions:

1.  Make basic challah and let rise for an hour. 

2.  Lightly flour your countertop and roll out the dough to a roughly 24"x24" square.

3.  Spread applesauce over the dough, leaving about an inch margin.  Then scatter the apples, sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar and if you want, drizzle with a little honey.

4.  Roll up tightly into a 2 foot log, pinching the ends and seam to close.

5.  Starting with one end placed in the center of the parchment, create a tight spiral with the dough, tucking the other end under the loaf at the end.  Brush with egg wash, cover lightly with a large bowl inverted over the dough, and let rise for another 45 minutes to an hour.  Brush again with egg wash.
