Pretzel Bites

These pretzel bites are better than the Pretzel Maker!  They do require a little bit of time, but they are quite simple to make.  If you have ever made rolls, you will have no problem making this delicious snack!

1 cup warm water
1/2 cup warm milk
2 TBS brown sugar
2 1/2 tsp yeast
1/4 cup oil
5 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp salt

3 qrts water
3/4 cup baking soda

1 egg white
1 TBS cold water

Coarse salt

Mix together the milk, water, and brown sugar. Sprinkle the yeast on top of the mixture, and allow to activate (3-5 minutes.) When the yeast has become frothy, add the oil, flour, and salt. Knead the mixture together.
Allow the dough to rise in a warm area (cover with a wet towel) for about one hour.
When the dough has doubled, roll the dough out into ropes. Bring the water and baking soda to a boil. Drop the pretzel ropes into the water, and boil for about 30 seconds.
Shape the pretzels, slice the pretzels into bite sized pieces (or leave as ropes) place on a pan sprayed with oil. Lightly brush the dough with the egg white and water mixture. Sprinkle with coarse salt, if desired.

Bake at 475 for 10-12 minutes.
