DIRECTIONS

  • SOFT PRETZELS:
  • Dissolve yeast in water, add salt and sugar.
  • Blend in all the flour and knead until smooth.
  • When smooth, cut dough into small pieces and roll into ropes. Twist ropes into conventional pretzel shapes and place on a paper-lined cookie sheet.
  • Brush pretzels with beaten egg, sprinkle with coarse salt.
  • Bake in a 425 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, or until brown. These do not keep long.
  • HARD PRETZELS:
  • Do everthing above, but decrease water to 1-1/4 cups and add 1/4 cup of melted butter.
  • Make pretzels smaller and bake until browned.
  • These pretzels will stay good for months in a tight container.
