1

tbsp

Yeast

1

tbsp

Sugar

1

tsp

Salt

2

tbsp

softened butter or softened margarine

1

cup

warm, (115-+ deg F) water

2 3/4

cups

flour

Coarse, Salt to sprinkle on Pretzels before baking

5

tsp

baking soda mixed in 4 cups water in a non-alumin

1

large

slotted spoon to "go fishing"

Greased, cookie sheet

1

Preheat oven to 475 F

2

Put yeast, sugar, salt, butter/marg, water and ONE CUP of the flour into a

3

medium mixing bowl and pour in the water.

4

Stir till all smooth, and yeast starts to bubble.

5

At this point add the rest of the flour, stir till it is mixed in.

6

When mixture is too stiff to stir with a spoon, begin kneading.

7

Knead dough till smooth and till it no longer sticks to the bowl and your

8

hands

9

Allow dough to rise to about double its height.

10

While dough is rising, grease the cookie sheet. and prepare the baking

11

soda-water mixture and bring to a boil on stove.

12

When dough is risen enough, punch down, knead for a minute or so, then

13

divide and roll the 6-inch sticks with your hands, to about 1/2 inch in

14

diameter, or 12-15-inch long rolls to make into the pretzel shape.

15

Allow sticks or pretzels to sit for about 1-2 mins. Place them into

16

boiling water-baking soda mixture one or two at a time.

17

Let the pretzels boil for 1 minute 10 seconds, then flip them over with

18

the slotted spoon and boil on the other side for 1 minute and 10 seconds.

19

This boiling step gives them a firm skin and adds some flavour. Not

20

boiling long enough leaves them too soft and allows them to rise too much.

21

Boiling too long makes them tough.

22

Fish them out of the water, let them drip off and place them on the

23

greased cookie sheet.

24

When all the pretzels or sticks are done, sprinkle the coarse salt on

25

them.

26

Bake for 12-15 minutes or till sticks or pretzels are golden brown.

ENJOY!!
