'These Pretzels Are Making Me Thirsty'

My, my! Sometimes things go so well in the kitchen! Never mind my roux is a little bit dark today... because these pretzels are kick. ass.

I adapted one recipe and modified the directions of another and this is what I got.

3 cups GF baking mix
1 tablespoon sugar
1 packet yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup Soymilk
1 tablespoon shortening
6 cups water
1/4 cup baking soda
Coarse salt

Combine one cup baking mix, sugar, salt and yeast in mixer bowl. Heat Soymilk and shortening to 120degrees. Add liquid to dry ingredients and stir until combined. Beat on medium until smooth. Slowly add additional baking mix until dough pulls away from sides of bowl. Squeeze dough together with hands a few times. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and towel. Let rise in warm place until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 450.

Line 2 jelly roll pans with parchment paper and brush lightly with oil. Roll dough into 1" balls. I got 36.

Bring water and baking soda to a rapid boil. Drop a few pretzels into water with a spider or slotted spoon. Boil for 30 seconds. Remove and return to oiled/parchment pan. Repeat until all pretzels boiled. Spread out on jelly roll pans evenly. Brush with melted margarine and sprinkle with coarse salt.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and delicious! I made these to eat with soup tonite.
