If you have a breadmaker in your kitchen, you’ll want to try this recipe! It is easy and really fun to prepare! The pretzels are lightly sweet with a crisp outside and a soft inside. The recipe makes 16 medium-sized pretzels that fit nicely on two cookie sheets.
- 1 ¼ cups water
- 3 ½ cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 Tbsp oil
- 2 Tbsps sugar
- 1 Tbsp bread-machine yeast
- raisins (optional)
- Glaze: 1 egg white & 1 Tbsp water
- Topping: ½ cup sugar & 1 tsp cinnamon
At this point, if you want your pretzels to be a little fuller, you can cover them tightly with a cloth and let them rise for 30-45 minutes before baking. Otherwise, you can bake them right away. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375° (F) for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the pan and eat them warm! The moment you start eating these, you’ll want to make some more again soon!
