Introduction: Pretzel Pie

What is pretzel Pie? quite simply, it is pretzel dough shaped like an eggroll, with pie filling inside of it. Pretzel pies are the ultimate snack food. Its chewy, it holds together, its sweet, and has an awesome taste. The great part of this snack is that for something this good and extreme, it doesnt take too much much work. All that is needed is to make the dough, shape the pies, and bake. Pies will no longer be large circular pastries, but odd looking pretzels, with a surprising taste.

Step 1: Gather the Ingredients!

The ingredients for the pretzel pies is fairly easy to get, nothing weird or odd.

You will need the following for a batch
Dough
3 cups flour* ( might change a little depending on the flour*)
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon yeast
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup water (luke warm)

Glaze
1 egg
1 teaspoon water

and pie filling! I used a can, but if you really want to, you can make your own (my way is easier)

Step 2: Tools!

For this you will need some cooking weaponry

measuring cups and spoons (duh)

A heavy duty rolling pin

A large cutting board( or something you can roll the dough out on)

a big bowl for mixing

a fork

a spoon

Optional

A bread or dough machine, trust me, this makes it a lot easier to make

Step 3: The Dough

The dough is quite simple to make,

add the flour, water, yeast, sugar and salt together, and MIX! the dough gets really tough. The dough should end up fairly thick. If it is sticky, add a little more flour.

When done, the blob of dough may not seem very large, but it will do a decent size batch of pretzel pie.

Step 4: Rolling

To being your pretzel pie making, cut off a golf ball sized chunk of dough.
Roll the dough out to be longer and wider than your hand. It should be fairly thin, but still staying together well.

Step 5: Filler Up!

Before shaping, first take a spoon full of pie filling and put it in the middle of the flat dough. Make sure that it doesn't go close to the edges, otherwise it will come out the sides and get all messy. About a spoon full and a little bit usually does it.

Step 6: Shape It!

The shaping is quite easy, take one side and fold it over the pie filling, press all around the edges to make sure the filling wont come out. Do the same for the other side. Press the side edges down and roll them up a little bit to make sure nothing will escape. pinch all the edges and putt it onto a pan, making sure that the long edge in on the bottom.

Step 7: Glaze

To make the glaze, combine one egg and one teaspoon water, and beat. Then brush this onto the tops of the pies. This makes it more pretzelish. If you dont have a brush then gently smear it on.

Step 8: Slits

Before baking, make some quick slits on the tops of the pies, make sure the aren't deep, and dont press into the pie, this will make them turn out better. too deep and it might ruin it, and if you press down too hard, the sides might open up, leading to a gooey mess

Step 9: Bake Them!

Now comes the baking. Put them into the oven at 425 F. Set the timer for about 12-15 minutes. Be sure to check on the regularly. Once they start to brown, remove from oven, or else they might burn on the bottom.

Step 10: Remove and Enjoy

Remove them and enjoy. They take a few minutes too cool down, and be careful the filling will be really hot!

Some might not turn out as well as the others. but they will all taste just as good!

Step 11: Other Ideas

If you don't pie you can do many other things. You can fill them with cheese and tomato sauce, you can fill them with meat, you can fill them with just about anything. Or if you are really extreme, you could make pretzels!! Enjoy and share!

Since pretzel pie is such a boring name, I am looking for a new name. I need a really good professional name for them, or a really funny name!

    Nice recipe so yumm

    Realize this is 5 yrs old but with a bit of food coloring in the dough, magical fruit sack would be a pretty neat name :-P

    If you seal them up REAL WELL so they don't leak, you could give them a dunk for about 30 secs in a big pan of boiling water (10 cups) with about a 2/3 cup of baking soda in it before glazing. That would give them a much better chewy brown coat when they bake that would be more uniform and less reliant on the eggwash for browning. This is because the weak alkali gelatinizes outer starches, converting some into sugars that get nice and brown and chewy. If you seal up your pies real good, the solution shouldn't leak in. Then glaze, score, and bake. Also, your oven might not be evenly baking. Give the pans a spin and switch them around halfway through baking to even out the heat.

    Ardrhi, you might want to check that baking soda amount again. Most every recipe or mention of using a baking soda bath for pretzels or bagels calls for ONE TABLESPOON of baking soda per pot of water. 2/3 cup would be great if you are going to clean the oven with it later, but that will most likely leave an unpleasant taste on whatever you're baking.

    You only dunk 'em for about 30 seconds. The baking soda doesn't act as an ingredient, it acts to chemically change the starch in the surface of the dough. The older tradition is to use lye water, but lye can be dangerous to work with, especially in boiling water, so substituting a weaker alkali, and more of it, accomplishes pretty much the same thing. It doesn't make them taste like baking soda (or lye), or put any of either in the pretzel, it gelatinizes the starch, and when you bake it, you get that yummy, golden-brown, glossy and chewy outer crust that makes the best pretzels.

    The 10 cups of water with 2/3 cup of baking soda for the alkali bath comes from an Alton Brown soft pretzel recipe. I *did* check the recipe before I posted it.
