Braiding this challah isn't quite as complicated as a six-strand rendition. Instead, take the four stuffed strands, and weave them under and over each other to create a hashtag with eight ends. Take the top two pieces of dough and twist them together. Follow the same pattern for the rest of the pieces, until there are four ends. Pinch two of the twisted ends together and repeat on the other side, so you are left with a long, twisted loaf. Then take the two ends of the loaf and pinch them together, so a circular shape is formed. Tuck the pinched end underneath the dough to prevent it from unraveling.
