Cooking with Alicia and Annie **Baked Pretzels
Here is another recipe from the cooking contest I spoke of in an earlier post http://alicia-annie.blogspot.com/2008/10/november-2008-blog-event.html There are tons of recipes to choose from. My kids thought homemade pretzels sounded yummy. They definitely preferred the cinnamon sugar ones. You could top these with tons of different items....use your imagination.
1/2 pkg. or 1/4 tsp. dry yeast
1 1/2 tsp. Sugar
2 c. flour
3/4 c. warm water
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 beaten egg with 1 teaspoon water
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add salt. Blend in flour with fork on floured board. Knead dough until smooth. Pull off pieces of dough about size of golf balls. Roll into 14 inch ropes and twist into pretzel shapes (alphabet shapes are fun for young children.) Brush with beaten egg and water; sprinkle with salt. Bake on greased cookie sheets at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes.
