    Beer Bottle Pretzels

    Empty the contents of 1 jar into a medium mixing bowl.
    Add 6 oz of Regular (not lite) beer (3/4 cup) to the mix, Stirring to combine. Overturn the soft dough on a lightly floured surface & knead until smooth. Cover and let rest in a warm area until doubled. (About 45 min.)

    Roll out on lightly floured surface into a 10'x6' rectangle and cut lengthwise into 6 strips. (Shape if desired or leave as is.) Cover and let rise again until nearly doubled; about 30 min.

    (If desired you can brush the tops with beaten egg white to achieve the glossy pretzel look and then sprinkle with Kosher Salt!)

    Bake on the top rack of a 400 degrees F oven for about 8 minutes or until lightly golden. Transfer to wire rack to cool.

      Yeast breads raise best if the correct temperature liquid is used. Check your yeast package for the correct temperature. This not the time for "a cold one"

      One packet of yeast generally equals 2 1/4 tsp, unless you're using Rapid Bread Yeast, then you should simply read the package for directions.
