Baked Pretzels (1-Pound Recipe)
Yield: 12 Pretzels
1/2 cup water (70 to 80ÂºF)
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Fleischmann’sÂ® Bread Machine Yeast
1 large egg - lightly beaten
1 tablespoon water
Coarse salt or sesame seed
Add water, egg, 1/2 teaspoon salt, all-purpose flour, sugar, and
yeast to bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer.
Select dough/manual cycle.
When cycle is complete, remove dough from machine to a lightly
floured surface. If necessary, knead in 1 tablespoon flour to make
dough easy to handle. Roll into a 12 Ã— 4-inch rectangle.
With sharp knife, cut into eight 12 Ã— 1/2-inch strips. Gently pull
each strip into a rope about 14 inches long. To shape into pretzels:
curve ends of each rope to make a circle; cross ends at top. Twist
ends once and lay over bottom of circle. Place on greased baking
Do not let rise. Combine lightly beaten egg and 1 tablespoon water;
brush on pretzels. Sprinkle with coarse salt or sesame seed. Bake at
350ÂºF for 18 to 20 minutes or until done. (For even browning when
using two sheets, switch positions of sheets halfway through
baking.) Remove from sheet; cool on wire rack.
NOTES : Do not make loaves larger than recommended by bread machine manufacturer. Use the 1-pound recipe if your bread machine pan holds 10 cups or less of water.
