Seasons

Using the symbolism of the pretzels as a reminder to pray, this food can be integral part of our Lenten diet and program. Serve these rolls as a special treat with Lenten Sunday meals.

DIRECTIONS

Add butter, sugar and salt to milk; when lukewarm add yeast cake, white of egg well beaten and flour. Knead, let rise, roll in pieces width of finger and twice the length. Shape into pretzel rings. Let stand on floured board, only until they begin to rise. Drop rings one at a time into shallow pan half full of very hot (but not boiling) water and cook. Must be light, keep shape and not break apart. Bake in hot (400°) oven on thin baking tin until crisp and brown.

(Serve as a special treat with Lenten Sunday meals.)
