Lorrie Lancaster


4 to 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 package Fleischmann's RapidRise Yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
Coarse salt, grated Parmesan cheese, or Spice Islands Poppy Seed or
Sesame Seed

In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast,
and salt. Heat milk, water, and oil until very warm (120 to 130 F);
stir into dry ingredients. Stir in enough remaining flour to make
soft dough. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic, about
4 to 6 minutes. Cover; let rest on floured surface 10 minutes. Divide
into 14 equal pieces. Roll each piece to 20-inch rope. Cover; let
rest 5 to 10 minutes until risen slightly.

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 2 greased baking sheets. Brush with beaten eggs. Bake at
350 F for 15 minutes. Remove from oven; brush again with eggs.
Sprinkle with salt, cheese, poppy seed, or sesame seed. Return to
oven and bake for 15 minutes or until done. Remove pretzels from
baking sheets; let cool on wire racks
