    This is a great recipe, but the glaze ingredients for the last stage should be listed separately; it is very confusing to have the 2/3 honey measurement combined.

    A note on this recipe --- The directions to add the active dry yeast without proofing in water is not a mistake. I have received an email from MS Customer Service (a very fast reply on their part) confirming that there is no yeast proofing stage in this recipe. However, it may be worth doing if you aren't sure that your yeast is still good!

    I'm in the midst of making this recipe right now but am a bit confused - doesn't most active dry yeast require dissolution in water first ? I followed the directions and am on to the second proof, but yeast granules are still visible in my dough … wasn't sure if I should start again or not, but am going to continue on and see what happens. No one else mentioned that they had issues, but still, everything I have googled says that active dry yeast needs to be dissolved first …. will report back

      There is no direction to dissolve the yeast before incorporating. Is this a mistake?

    Really, no more difficult than regular challah - maybe easier if the braiding scares you. I was afraid kneading in the apple slices would be difficult, but it worked quite smoothly. Two notes- I needed 1/2 cup more flour- the recipe should note that you may need a little more or a little less to get the right consistency. Also, next time I will use two whole apples- plenty of room for more.

    Sooo Good! I make it for Rosh Hashana and everyone loves it!! It is time consuming, but it's not all active time, so it doesn't bother me. I just do other things while it's rising.

    Delicious -- i found it a bit time consuming. Ended up buying from AMAZING stuffed apple challah - -and honestly easier.
