Ingredients:

Directions:
Directions:
Take, 2 cups of flour mix with salt and yeast, add the warm milk, beat on slow speed for 2 minutes, continue to add flour, mix as long as you can with mixer than turn dough out and knead by hand until smooth. Place dough in a greased bowl, cover lightly and place in a warm spot to rise for at least ½ hour. Your dough should double in size.

Once the dough has doubled, form into shapes, pretzels or rolls or both, place on greased baking sheet,
Lightly cover and allow dough to rest at least ½ an hour, no longer than one hour.
While the rolls are resting prepare the water and baking soda ‘bath’.
The rolls are then placed and turned in the simmering water bath, then removed and placed on a dry cloth. Then they are slit with a knife on top and sprinkled with salt.

Place the rolls on a new greased baking sheet, bake until light brown, about ½ hour. The size of the rolls will effect the baking time.

Personal Notes:
Saturday mornings we would walk to Oma's apartment, help make laugenweg and then would enjoy these beauties hot out of the oven with butter and Oma's famous iced tea! Who knew Oma's iced tea would later be named an Arnold Palmer!
