My boys and I made big soft pretzels Sunday.
They turned out awesome. They are a little different than your typical soft pretzel in that they use a significant amount of whole wheat flour and honey.
They are really really tasty in my humble opinion.
They pair really well with SheppyBrew's Weizened Doonkle.
Here is my recipe ....
2 cups water
1 packet dry yeast
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp salt
5 or 6 cups flour (I used half whole wheat and half white flour)
1 or 2 eggs
Mix honey, salt, water.
Add flour a cup or so at a time until consistency is about right to kneed. Kneed in about a cup more.
Let the dough rise.
Break into 8 balls (use your own judgement for the size you want)
Roll into long, thin ropes. Shape into pretzel shapes.
Beat egg and apply to pretzels.
Sprinkle Sea Salt on for taste.
Cook 15 minutes in 425 oven.
