A few weeks ago I went to Munich for the second time. I fell in love with pretzels already the first time I was there, but now I've decided to try to make them. I found one recipe on the blog Cristina was very kind and gave me permission to use her recipe. Thanx a lot! :)
It's not that difficult, it tastes good, but of course it isn't the same as the german one.

Ingredients (8 pretzel)

500 gr flour type 00
1 pinch of salt
4 envelopes of dry yeast
40 gr of sugar
75 gr of lard
125 ml of lukewarm water
125 ml of lukewarm milk

1 egg
coarse salt
sesame seeds
poppy seeds

Mix flour, salt, yeast, sugar and lard. Slowly add milk and water and mix the dough. Leave it for 30 minutes covered with a cloth. Mix the dough with your hands and leave it for 10 minutes. Put the dough in 8 pieces.  From every piece of dough do a long "sausage" and make the pretzel shape on the baking tin. Mix the egg in a bowl with some water then put it with the brush on the pretzel. On the top of the pretzel put some coarse salt and some sesame seeds or poppy seeds (if you want). Bake in a preheated oven on 200°C for about 20 minutes.
