    Soft Pretzels Soft Pretzels

    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.

    Makes 14 pretzels
