As everyone knows, I love to bake, and on Saturday morning, the lucky recipe chosen out of my recipe box was for soft pretzels. Here is the recipe I used:
1 package of yeast
1 1/2 cups of warm water
1 tbsp sugar
4 1/2 cups of flour
1 beaten egg
coarse or sea salt
Combine yeast, water, and sugar. Let it stand until yeast is dissolved and begins to foam.
Stir in salt and flour. Knead on a flour covered surface for 8-10 mins or until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Separate into ropes and shape the pretzels onto a lightly greased baking sheet.
Cover the pretzels and let them stand for 20 minutes. Brush with beaten egg, and sprinkle with salt.
Bake at 425 degrees until golden brown.
Let cool, and enjoy!
