Appetizers: Buckwheat Pretzels

A homemade snack everyone will love.

Serves: 12-16 pretzels


3 1/2 cups all purpose flour

2/3 cup buckwheat flour (light or whole)

2 tsp. salt

2 eggs

1 cup milk

1 egg white, slightly beaten

Sesame seeds, poppy seeds and/or coarse salt


In large bowl, mix two flours and salt. Add eggs and milk; blend to form a medium soft dough.

Knead dough on a floured board for a few minutes. Place dough into a sealed container or zipper-top plastic bag; let rest for about 20 minutes.

Cut dough into 12 or 16 pieces, depending upon pretzel size you prefer. Roll each piece into a rope and twist into desired shape. Place pretzels on a lightly oiled baking sheet; brush with egg white. Sprinkle with salt, sesame or poppy seeds.

Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Serve warm.
