Fall Baking Day

I just love this time of year- a crisp feeling in the air- that means it's time for my oven to go on and bake!
When we were in Shipshewana we had a pretzel and it reminded me that I hadn't made pretzels for awhile. I make the dough in the bread maker and then bake them. They are delicious and the kids just love them. Halle had to help- we had so much fun rolling them out. After we were done with that I thought it was time for a apple pie. I love the smell of an apple pie baking. It was pretty tasty too!
Here's the recipe for the pretzels if you want to try them. You may want to be prepared to make them again the next day- I only have 2 left and the kids were fighting about who got the last ones.

3/4 c. water
2 c. bread flour
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. yeast
1 egg beaten
1-2 T. coarse salt

Measure all ingredients into bread pan, except egg and coarse salt. Select dough cycle. Preheat oven t 450. Divide dough into 12 pieces and roll into 8 inch rope. Form int pretzel shape. Place on greased cokie sheet, brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Posted by Picasa

Those look soooo good! Do you think there is a way I could make the pretzels without a breadmaker?
