Soft Pretzels (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Becky Ilog.

Ingredients:
2 packages of active dry yeast
1 and one half cups of water at 110F
1 teaspoon brown sugar
Dash salt
2 cups brown rice flour
1 cup tapioca starch
1 cup potato starch
4 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 Tablespoon baking soda
½ cup warm water
1 cup real butter, melted
Toppings (See below)

Directions:
Mix first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Let rest for 5 minutes.

Mix rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, xanthan gum in a medium bowl. Put half the flour mixture into the yeast mixture. Mix with a hand electric mixer on low speed until all ingredients mixed in. Add the other half of the flour. Mix with the mixer until well combined. Do not over beat.

Grease a bowl with Crisco or a few teaspoons of vegetable oil. Transfer the dough to this bowl and turn dough over so that it is greased on all sides. Cover with a damp towel. Let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.

Grease a large cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 550F. Mix baking soda and ½ cup warm water in a shallow pan (a round cake pan works well).

Divide dough into 8 equal pieces. Gently roll each into a rope with your hands and/or on waxed paper. The dough is fragile and will come apart easily so rest the parts that are not between your hands on the waxed paper so that it is supported. Shape the rope into a pretzel shape. If parts of the dough feel dry, put a few drops of the baking soda water on your hands. Dip each pretzel in the baking soda/water, then lay them on the greased cookie sheet.

Bake 7-8 minutes. They will be a faint tan but not brown. Remove cookie sheet from oven when done. Dip each pretzel in the melted butter and place on a plate. Sprinkle generously with topping. Eat immediately.

Toppings: For salted pretzels, use sea salt, Kosher salt or pretzel salt. For cinnamon sugar pretzels, use ½ cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon mixed together. For Parmesan pretzels, sprinkle with a mixture of ¼ cup of parmesan cheese and 1 teaspoon of garlic salt.

I would recommend putting a line in between dry ingredients and the baking soda as I accidentally added it to the flour. I think it killed my yeast. uh oh!

I thought it was good, except it wasn't stretchy like it should be and its very sticky-hard to make into a pretzel shape. They are really only good with toppings. :]

I don't know why but the dough was very "liquidy" so I added more flour. My result was a very pale raw-flour filled pretzel. Any suggestions on how I can improve it? I really love pretzels so much. They are one of my favorite foods.

It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge. Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chas...

I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed ce...

Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA al...

This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven? My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an...
