    MMinMI's Note:

    This is an authentic German pretzel recipe for my neighbor who is from Germany. Weigh (on a scale) the flour, butter, and salt. Use a cold lye bath -- 50 g food grade lye and 1250 ml water (can be saved and reused) or boiling baking soda bath (2 tablespoons Baking Soda and 1 litre water, bring to boil) before baking. Prep time includes rise time. AWSOME!!!!

    1. 1
      Mix dry ingredients together. Add liquid ingredients and mix on medium speed in Kitchen Aid Mixer until a ball forms.

    4. 4
      To shape pretzels, roll dough (about 2 ounces) into an 18 inch rope (leave the middle a little fatter than the ends), form into a circle with about a 2 inch tail on each end, twist the cross over twice, fold in half, and press the end of the tails into the circle.
    5. 5
      Refrigerate pretzels for about 10 minutes, let rolls or sticks rise for 10-15 minutes.
    6. 6
      Dip in Lye bath for 10 seconds or boiling baking soda mixture for 30 seconds. Place on parchment lined cookie sheets. Slit with a sharp knife or razor blade. Sprinkle with pretzel salt.
