Pretzels

This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.

Ingredients

•     1 1/2 cups warm water (105-115 degrees)

•     2 packages active dry yeast

•     1/4 cup sugar

•     1 1/2 tsp. salt

•     1/4 cup vegetable oil

•     4 - 4 1/2 cups bread flour or all-purpose flour

•     1 egg white

•     1 Tbsp. water

•     Sesame seeds or poppy seeds

Directions

•     Measure warm water into large bowl. Sprinkle in yeast; stir until dissolved. Add sugar, salt, oil and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Gradually add remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead dough by hand 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Cover bowl and let rest 30 minutes. Divide dough into 24 pieces; cover and let rest 5 minutes. Roll each into a uniform 18-inch rope. Shape into a pretzel by making a circle, overlapping the two ends, twisting them once and then pressing them onto the bottom curve of the circle. (Dough may also be shaped into 8-inch breadsticks.) Place on greased baking sheets. Beat egg white and water together; brush pretzels. Sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds. Bake in preheated 425 degrees oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheets; cool on wire rack.
