Baked Pretzels
Serving Size: 12


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
=== DOUGH ===
3/4 cup water
1 large egg
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons sugar
3 cups bread flour
2 teaspoons yeast
=== GLAZE ===
1 large egg
1 tablespoon water
coarse salt

Add all DOUGH ingredients to your machine in order suggested by
manufacturer. Select dough/manual cycle.

When cycle is complete, remove dough from machine to a lightly floured
surface. If necessary, knead in enough flour to make dough easy to
handle. Roll into a 14- by 6-inch rectangle. With sharp knife, cut into
twelve 14- by 1/2-inch strips. Gently pull each strip into a rope about
16 inches long.

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 greased baking sheet(s). Do not let rise. Combine egg and 1
tablespoon water; brush on pretzels. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake at
350 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes or until done. (For even browning when
using two sheets, switch sheets halfway through baking.) Remove from
sheet(s); cool on rack.

This recipe yields 12 pretzels.
