We didn't make Santa cookies today, but we did make him some pretzels! :)
If you need a good snack and don't have time for a yeast dough, these may do the trick.
The dough isn't quite as easy to shape as yeast dough but they are quite tasty.
You can also use the flour of your choice. I used spelt.
2 cups flour
2 t baking powder
1 t sugar
1/ 2 t salt
2/3 cup milk
2 T melted butter
2 eggs (one for the wash)
coarse sea salt (or other)
(extra flour for rolling and shaping)
Mix dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and beat one egg into the milk. Stir dough, gradually pouring in the melted butter.
Knead dough (lightly) on floured surface. Divide into 16 pieces.
Shape and place on lightly greased baking sheet.
Brush pretzels with beaten egg. Sprinkle with salt.
Bake at 400 for approx 17 minutes.
Serve with mustard!
