My mum surprised me with these beauties on Monday when I came home. These pretzels are so delicious I had to share the recipe with you! They're like lemonade in cookie form. Totally addictive and so easy to make.
200 grams flour
100 grams butter
70 grams sugar
1/2 lemon - squish the juice out of it and grate the peel
2 egg yolks
1 tea spoon vanilla
Mix all of the ingredients together with a wooden spoon. When it starts getting thick, continue with your hands and knead the dough. Form into a ball and put in the fridge for 30 minutes. Form the dough into a long, sausage looking shape. Now cut the dough to walnut sized pieces. Form this little pieces of dough into pretzels by rolling the dough into a small sausage looking shape and turning the edges to the middle of it, pressing slightly with your fingers. Just use your imagination, you can also do other shapes if you wish. Bake at 180°C until they're golden brown. Sprinkle the pretzels with powdered sugar while they're still warm.
