Recipes using Red Star Yeast

Price Each: $12.93USD


1/2 tbsp yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
4 cups unsifted Pillsbury Unbleached or King Arthur Unbleach Flour*
1 large egg, beaten
Kosher or Sea Salt (coarse)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Grease a cookie sheet

1. Dissolve yeast in warm water.
2. Add salt and sugar to dissolved yeast.
3. Blend in flour, knead until smooth.
4. Cut dough into small pieces and roll them into ropes.
5. Twist dough ropes into traditional pretzel shapes or any shape you desire.
6. Place on greased cookie sheet.
7. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with Kosher or Sea Salt.
8. Bake immediately for 12 - 15 mins.

* Use unbleached flour for best flavor. Unbleached flour is bright white, it's just more time consuming to make. Flour will whiten naturally after milling. Since the natural whitening takes time (about 6 months), many producers speed up the process using chemicals. That process and chemical addition can alter the taste of foods made from bleached flour.
