Today, I decided to clean out the freezer. Figured a few items could use labels before I forgot why I saved them. One item I uncovered was crust from challah from when my grandparents visited. While they stayed with us, they said I outdid myself with cooking. Made a delicious pasta, chocolate chip cookies, and a creme brulee inspired french toast that I uncovered at Whole Foods many moons ago.
As I was trimming the crusts off the challah, my grandmother suggested that I save them. I tossed them in a freezer bag and didn’t think about them again until yesterday when I was going through the freezer. I found myself with leftover sliced apples and challah crusts. What to make? Why, bread pudding of course. I pulled out my trusty Best Recipe Cookbook and with a few tweaks made this wonderful treat.
