  • 3 cups of all purpose flour 
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of lukewarm milk
  • 1 dessertspoon dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 dessertspoon salt
  • Sea salt


Take a small bowl, add lukewarm milk, yeast, sugar and water. After it rises put it in a larger bowl and add butter, salt one whole egg and one egg white. Save the yolk for later use. 

After mixing them well, add flour slowly and knead. Leave the dough couple of hours in a warm place, until it doubles its size. Then take small pieces and make round sheets with the help of a roller.Starting from one edge roll the sheet to get a string shaped dough.

You can try different shapes with this dough. See the pictures

Apply egg yolk and sea salt or sesame on pretzels and lay them over a baking pan.I used pizza pan to bake them, but you can use any cookie pan if you do not have a pizza pan. Bake about 20-30 minutes in 400 F preheated oven. Enjoy!
