1 1/4 cups water
1 Tbsp oil
1 tsp lemon juice
1 egg yolk
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1/8 tsp white pepper
3 1/2 cups bread flour
1 Tbsp active dry yeast
1 egg white
1 Tbsp water
Preheat oven to 375.
Place dough ingredients into bread pan in order listed. Use Basic Dough setting; press Start.
When setting is complete, remove dough from bread pan and place into greased bowl, turning to coat evenly.
Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 25 minutes, or until doubled in size.
Place dough on a lightly floured surface and punch down.
Cut the dough into 16 equal pieces. Roll each piece of dough into a rope about 16" long. Shape each rope into a pretzel (Cross the ends of the rope to make a loop; twist the crossed ends once and fold across the loop).
Place the pretzels on a greased baking sheet 1 1/2" apart.
Brush with combined egg white and water. Sprinkle with salt or sesame seeds. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
