Comments were assigned numbers and winners were chosen via an online numeric randomizer. Comments were assigned a number, and the randomizer chose the winning numbers. The winners are:

33. April: “There are many–hard to pick one, but I would say Apple-Walnut Charoset! Yum!”

477. Bernadette Condesso: “Chocolate babka”

493. Kay Wall: “Challah, followed by rugelach. I have recipes for both from my former boss’s wife, whose family prepared a little cookbook of her mother’s (who I really enjoyed) favorite Jewish recipes. Her mother always made sure that I felt welcomed and comfortable at the gatherings at the synagogue (bar mitzvahs, etc.) that occurred and that I was invited to. She knew that I was not Jewish and wanted to make sure I was welcomed and comfortable and knew what to do. I love that little cookbook and, as a matter of fact, was looking at it last night, thinking about making rugelach.”

310. Trish Harris: “caramel nut rugelach”

902. Andrea Glassberg Pincus: “Passover Mandel Bread”

37. Mashugana: “My favorite is CHOLENT!”

589. Marsha Boyer: “Rugelach! My Aunt made the best!”

Thank you all for entering! I’ll be hosting another fun giveaway very soon. :)

  1. Used to be poppyseed hamentaschen … now it’s Nutella Hamentaschen. Not that I’d EVER refuse a poppy hamentaschen!!

  2. My Oma’s (grandma) challah! Haven’t had it since she passed in 82. If I had a choice of anything in this world, it would be her challah!

  3. I love ruggalah! I just found an awesome recipe for it and I make my own now. It takes a long time (chilling the dough) but it is worth the wait!

  4. what a wonderful give-away. hands down nothing beats a delicious mandel bread. when we moved from NY to LA, i realized what they said about NY water was true. here, it was hard to find good bagels, good pizza, and impossible to find the mandel bread and ruggelach i grew up with from mr. hoenig’s bakery. and, unlike the cascading mountain with cherries from my youth, you are lucky to buy a taiglach here bigger than an apple, if you can find any. but a good mandel bread is not biscotti and is far from a fruit cake. thats what i would love to learn to bake most. hands down.

  5. It has to be Hamantaschen. My grandchildren made them last week in preschool. My grandson saved me his chocolate one because ” chocolate is Bubbie’s favorite”.

  6. My favorite Jewish baked treat is my aunt’s recipe for mandel bread for peseach. She doesn’t make it anymore, but I have amazing recipes of it from my childhood. I finally got the recipe for it from her last year and make it for the first time – nothing could be better!!!

  7. I am torn between the Challah for me (I am horrible at shaping it) or the Hebrew letter alphabet for kids. I think the Hebrew Alphabet for kids would win if I had to choose one.

  8. I have to admit that I have two favorite Jewish baked treats are honey cake and sweet challa! I make honey cake every rosh hashana and then some for my brother and in-law since he usually doesn’t leave much other guests :)

    P.S. I would LOVE to win this purim gift set since I am expecting a little new addition to the family come June B”H and this would be perfect for me to keep on baking

  9. My favorite Jewish baked treat is my aunt’s recipe for mandel bread for beseech, only followed by her recipe for pesach brownies (which are a staple at our seders and a seder is not complete without). She doesn’t make it anymore, but I have amazing recipes of it from my childhood. I finally got the recipe for it from her last year and make it for the first time – nothing could be better!!!
