Challah French Toast

Ina, the Barefoot Contessa, really pumps up the flavor of traditional french toast by using the eggy challah bread, orange zest, and vanilla. Pour real maple syrup over these warm slices for a great holiday breakfast.

Be sure to let the bread dry out a bit so it really soaks up that yummy custard.

Rustic Apple Tart

Only 6 ingredients!! It only takes 20 minutes to put this apple tart together. A glaze of apple or apricot jelly brushed over the top adds a sheen to the finished tart.

When brushing dough with egg wash, be careful not to let any drip down the sides; it will cause the dough to stick to the pan and prevent it from rising properly.
