Need good challah recipe! [moved from Manhattan board]

Looks like a mean yummy challah. Do you know what the difference is between using butter or oil? I've seen both and don't know which one's better. I've also seen some where they've suggested using milk (half milk, half water). Thoughts?

Hmm.. so the key is to knead it longer? How do you know when it's enough? Is there any chance that if you knead it too much, it'll get tough (similar to muffin/pancake/biscuit batter)?

BTW: The photo of those little challah rolls look absolutely scrumptous!

There wasn't anything particularly bad about it--just was mediocre. It didn't seem sweet or soft enough.

Does anyone know what happens if you let the bread rise one too many times? I think I may have done that and perhaps it affected it.

Thank you for the recipe and the tip. I will certainly give it a try. Is the recipe more on the sweeter side?

Have you also come across any chocolate/ chocolate chip challah recipes?

Any suggestions on a really great challah recipe? Tried the recipe from JC's Baking w/ Julia last year and wasn't too thrilled.

Has anyone tried Joan Nathan's recipe? Thoughts?

Thanks!
