Four Corner Challa

We all know of Schlissel Challa. Few heard of Four Corner Challa.

Schlissel Challah's first Mekor is in the name of the Ohev Yisrael (Apte Rebbe)

Four Corner Challa's Mekor is one of the Rishonim.

The Kol Bo (52) writes:

"The Minhag is for women to bake on Shavuos a long bread with four corners (points) lezecher the Shtei Halechem (looks like 2 breads) or because  Mazel Sivan is Teomim (twins)"

There is no Parnassa Segulah attached to this Minhag. Probably this is the reason, the Minhag hasn't survived.
