Challah Shape: Croatian Star

Here is a neat star I made last Shabbat.  I learned this method in A Blessing of Bread: The Many Rich Traditions of Jewish Bread Baking Around the World by Maggie Glezer.  The author writes that it isn't really a "Jewish shape" but when done with three strands it becomes a "Baroque Star of David."

Silly me, I made it with four strands.  So it's not a star.  But it was still pretty neat!!!!!!  

This bread had some rosemary and garlic powder needed it.  Delicious!
