Jams and condiments are always my favorite aisles to peruse when shopping in major supermarkets. There are so many interesting flavours and jams to choose from. Once again, I wasn’t disappointed. I found a pretty looking jar with a gold label that said “maple butter” in big letters. Now if that doesn’t sound delicious, what does? There was a nice big OU (kosher certification) on it, so I promptly put it in my cart.
Last Friday when I was making challah, I decided to experiment with it.
I rolled out 1/5 of the dough in a thin rectangle (the thinner the better) and smeared the surface liberally with maple butter. A sprinkle of cinnamon and handful of raisins, and the dough was ready to be rolled. I started on the short side and rolled it into a tight rolled log. Cutting every few inches, I made 6 even pieces. I greased the pan and placed the rolls swirl side up. I brushed with an egg and based for 35- 40 minutes or until golden.
They were so good, that the whole family decided that this was the new erev shabbos “minhag” (custom) in our home.
