DEEP-FRIED PRETZELS





Makes 18 soft pretzels







1 cup all-purpose flour



1/4 teaspoon salt



1 tablespoon CRISCO all-vegetable shortening or 1 tablespoon CRISCO Stick



6 tablespoons cold water



CRISCO Shortening or CRISCO Stick for deep frying



Coarse salt











Combine flour and salt in a bowl. Cut in Crisco with a pastry blender or 2 knives. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing until dry ingredients are moistened and dough can be gathered into a ball. Knead gently a few times.



Pinch off pieces of dough and shape into 1-inch balls.



Roll each ball between hands to form a 10-inch rope. Form each rope into a pretzel shape. Set on waxed paper.



Heat Crisco to 365ºF in a deep saucepan or deep fryer.



Fry 3 pretzels at a time in hot Crisco for 3 minutes or until golden brown.



Drain on paper towels; sprinkle with coarse salt.
