Pretzels

Pretzel 1  An unbaked pretzel.

We did this recipe in two days since one class period is an hour. We also had to wait for the dough to rise.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 teaspoon dry yeast

3/4 cup warm water

1 1/2 cups of Flour

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon Salt

Steps:

1. Put yeast and water in a large bowl and stir until dissolved. The water has to be 115 degrees. *Note: Don’t let the water be too hot or you will kill the yeast!

2. Sift the flour, sugar, and salt together in a small bowl.

3. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the liquid mixture.

4. Knead the dough until smooth and elastic.

5. Grease a medium sized bowl and place the dough into the bowl.

6. Plastic wrap the bowl and refrigerate overnight to let the dough rise.

Part 2/Day 2:

Ingredients:

1 Egg, beaten,

1 Tablespoon coarse salt

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2. Grease a cookie sheet.

3. Roll each piece into long “pencil-thin” ropes.

4. Loop each rope into a pretzel. (Or any other shape you might like, I found that making the pretzel was hard.)

5. Using a pastry brush, brush each pretzel with the beaten egg.

6. Sprinkle with salt.

7. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

I'm a high school Senior at Saint Joseph. I run cross-country, play soccer, and race bikes. I love to bake and cook with my mom, mostly so that I will be able to survive on my own in college. This past Summer I biked to North Carolina with my two brothers. It was over 1,100 miles! I'm a twin, and the youngest of four. I want to be an Early Education teacher when I go to college, mostly teaching kindergarten. I hope that you enjoy my blog! (Any food recipe not stated was either from my Foods teacher, Mrs. Berry, a student of hers, from my own home, or as I hate to say it a mix/bag/box.) There are pages up top of this bio page and then there are also separate categories with actual recipes down below to the side (under the Archives). Please explore to your hearts desire!
