Monday Recipe : Pretzels

  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour Need 4 to 4 1/2 cups

  • 1 packet Fleischmann’s RapidRise Yeast this is equal to 2 1/4 tsp

  • Heat milk, water, and oil until very warm, approximately 120° to 130°F. Stir warm liquids into flour mixture. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes. Cover; let rest on floured surface 10 minutes. 
  • Divide into 10 equa sizel pieces. Roll each piece to 20-inch rope. Cover and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes until risen slightly. To shape into pretzels: Curve ends of each rope to make a circle; cross ends at top. Twist ends once and lay over bottom of circle. Place on 2 greased baking sheets. 
  • Brush with beaten eggs then bake at 350°F for 15 minutes. Remove from oven; brush again with eggs. Sprinkle with salt, cheese, poppy seed, or sesame seed. 
  • Return to oven and bake for 15 minutes or until done. Remove pretzels from baking sheets; let cool on wire racks.
