Bavarian Pretzels/ Pretzel Rolls (Laugenbrezeln)

This easy recipe is from one of my all time favorite bread making cookbooks Local Breads by Daniel Leader/ Lauren Chattman with the directions tweaked just a little. I usually double the recipe and have always had outstanding results.The dough can be refrigerated from 2-24 hours so I sometimes bake 1 batch and then save the rest of the dough for the next day so they are fresh. I mostly use the recipe to make pretzel rolls and often wrap the dough around hot dogs or sausages which are a favorite of my DS (Pretzel Dogs) *See note at bottom of instructions*. I occasionally add a little extra flour depending on the weather to get my dough as directed below. The dough should be a little moist/ sticky. Add only a tablespoon at a time if extra is needed. Please read the recipe through before starting. This recipe prints out as 2 pages for those that may want to set their print job to 2 sided :)
