If two challahs are braided and baked together on one pan, and before they are completely baked, they have stuck together, do I have one challah or two? I.e. can I separate them and still have two challahs for lechem mishneh? The same question would apply to store-bought challah rolls that come in a six pack where all six are stuck together.

This was discussed, with regard to matzos backed in a large sheet, on (IIRC) Hirhurim. Will search. – J. C. Salomon May 1 '13 at 19:25
