  • In a mixing bowl stir together 1 1/2 cups of the flour and the yeast. In a saucepan heat and stir milk, sugar and oil and the 1 teaspoon of salt till warm (120* to 130*). Add to flour mixture. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Using a spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured surface (such as counter). Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes total). Shape dough into ball. Place dough in a greased bowl: Turn once to grease surface of dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place till the ball is about double the size (about 1 1/4 hours).
  • Punch dough down and turn out into a slightly floured surface. Cover; let rest ten minutes. Roll dough into a 12x10 inch rectangle. Cut into twenty 12x1/2-inch strips. Gently pull each strip into a rope about 16 inches long.
  • Shape each pretzel by crossing one end over the other to form a circle, overlapping about four inches from each end. Take one end of the dough in each hand and twist once at the point where the dough overlaps. Carefully lift each end across to the edge of the circle opposite it. Tuck ends under edges to make a pretzel shape. Moisten ends press to seal.
  • Place pretzels on greased baking sheets. Bake in a 475* oven for 4 minutes. Remove from oven. Lower oven temperature to 350*.
  • Dissolve the 2 Tablespoons salt in the boiling water. Lower pretzels three or four at a time into boiling water. Boil for 2 minutes turning once. Remove with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Let stand a few seconds, then place about 1/2 inch apart on well greased baking sheet.
  • Combine egg white and one tablespoon water. Brush pretzels with egg whites and water mixture. Sprinkle slightly with desired topping. Bake in oven at 350* for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheet and set on wire rack to cool.
