I made this fun bread for the Swiss leg of ZWT7. I made them this morning and there are only 3 remaining because they have proven to be highly addictive walk by munchies. I used the bread maker to make the dough and then just did the shaping and cuts. I'll be making this great recipe again and next time there will be pix awalde (using a borrowed laptop at present). A for this one :D

I had some difficulties with understanding some of the directions but I was able to figure it out. Coming into this cooking project with not much background information it was surprisingly a tremendous success! The directions for explaining how to shape the dough could be clearer, luckily awalde posted a picture in the veg forum for guidance. If I did this correctly, the pieces are rolled into cylindrical shapes about 5 inches long then flattened. Three slices with a sharp knife are done down the center of each roll. The dough proofed for 1 hour in a warm oven. A medium coarse Corsican salt was lightly sprinkled on each pretzel. I had to rely on the not always so reliable food.com measurement converter to prep this recipe, too. Reviewed for Veg Tag January.

I may not have made the prettiest pretzels (partially due to my bright egg yolk) but they sure are good! My dough wasn't as pliable as it probably should have been but it worked fine. These pretzels do not have the chewy consistency of most pretzels - they are more bread-like. Also, I used 10g of active dry yeast in place of fresh yeast. Made for PRMR tag game. Thanks awalde! :)
