"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing..." -Helen Keller
With Auntie Anne living on the other side of the world, soft pretzels are item 986 to be added to the "must make it yourself" list. :)

These are a tasty treat that have made it onto our weekly snack list... sometimes with requests a few times a week-- they're perfect for all of our little friends here who claim to be Chinese but must actually be aliens because they don't like sweet food. :)
An Original Recipe.

Dissolve 1 tablespoon of yeast in one cup of lukewarm milk. Add two beaten eggs, 2.5 cups of white flour, 1.5 cups of whole wheat flour, 1 teaspoon of salt and mix. Knead for 5 minutes.

Add extra flour as necessary, especially if the dough is too sticky, then roll the dough into pieces about 1/2 inch in diameter and 14-18 inches long.

Shape into pretzel shapes, or any shapes, really, and brush with a beaten egg. Salt with coarse salt. We've also cooked up some garlic and italian seasoning and added it at times-- this has turned out really well.

Bake at 420 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-15 minutes until golden brown! Enjoy!!!
