Ingredients

2 c. milk
1/2 c. butter
2 pkg. active dry yeast
2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. sugar
7 c. flour
2 large eggs
1 c. powdered sugar
1 T. water
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
1/4 c. walnuts, chopped


Heat milk & butter until very warm. Mix yeast, salt, sugar, & 1 c. flour.


Slowly beat warm milk into yeast mixture. Beat for 2 minutes. Add eggs & 1 c.


of flour. Beat for an additional 2 minutes. Add enough flour to form a soft


dough. Knead until smooth & elastic, about 5 min. Place dough in a greased


bowl. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Punch dough


down & let rise again until doubled. (1 hour). Divide dough in half.


Shape pretzel:


Roll dough into a rope about 30" long & 1 1/2" in diameter. Cross the ends


leaving a large loop in the center. Flip loop back onto crossed ends to


form a pretzel. Repeat with remaining dough. Place pretzels on greased


baking sheets. Let rise 15 minutes more. Bake at 375F. for 25 to 30 minutes


or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.


Mix powdered sugar, water & vanilla to form a thin icing. Spread icing


on pretzels & sprinkle with chopped nuts. Makes 2 large pretzels.
