(New Year's Pretzels)
Servings: 2

2 c milk
1/2 c butter
2 pk dry yeast
2 t salt
1/2 c sugar
7 c flour
2 eggs
1 c confectioners' sugar
1 t vanilla extract
1/4 c almonds, chopped

Heat milk and butter until very warm (120-130 degrees F.). Mix
yeast, salt, sugar, and 1 cup flour. Slowly beat into warm milk.
Beat for 2 minutes. Add eggs and 1 cup of flour. Beat for an
additional 2 minutes. Add enough flour to form a soft dough.
Knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place dough in
a greased bowl. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk,
about 1 hour. Punch dough down and let rise again until doubled.
(1 hour more). Divide dough in half. Shape pretzel as follows:
Roll dough into a rope about 30 inches long and 1 1/2 inches in
diameter. Cross the ends leaving a large loop in the center. Flip
loop back onto crossed ends to form a pretzel. Repeat with remaining
dough. Place pretzels on greased baking sheets. Let rise 15
minutes more. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes or until
golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Mix confectioners' sugar, water
and vanilla to form a thin icing. Spread icing on pretzels and
sprinkle with chopped almonds. Makes 2 large pretzels.
