WW: Bread Machine Pretzels (2 points)
1-1/2 tsp. active dry yeast
3 cups bread flour
3 Tbsp. light brown sugar
1-1/4 cups water
2 quarts. water
1/2 cup baking soda
All ingredients are measured for a small loaf and should be at room temperature.
Add first 4 ingredients, except for salt. Set machine on manual or dough setting and and the end of the first kneading cycle, press `stop.’ Remove dough and let rest 5 minutes before shaping. (If your machine does not have a manual cycle, just use the regular setting).
Preheat oven to 475ÂºF.
Bring water and baking soda to a gentle boil.
Sprinkle baking sheets with coarse salt.
Transfer dough to a lightly floured working surface and cut dough into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece into about a 15-inch long rope and make a `u’ shape with each. Cross the ends and twist. Pull the ends down and through the loops, pinching down to make sure the shape holds.
Add 2 pretzels to the boiling water for 15 seconds, or until lightly golden. Repeat with remaining pretzels and transfer all to prepared baking pan.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden.
