1160 - Taralli (Italian Pretzels/Bagels) #

(by Rachel Guarini - friend)

1 - .25 ounce package active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup margarine
1 1/2 TBSP white sugar
1 TBSP salt
1 egg
5 lbs. all-purpose flour
1/2 cup fennel seeds
1/4 cup water (if needed)

In a bowl, dissolve yeast in 1 1/2 cups water--let stand for 5 minutes. In a
large bowl combine margarine, white sugar, salt, and egg. Add yeast mixture
and 1/2 of the flour to the egg mixture--mix until smooth. Stir in the remaining
flour and the fennel seeds. Mix in additional water as needed to make a stiff
dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface--knead well. Place
dough in a lightly oiled bowl and turn once to coat surface. Cover dough bowl
with a damp cloth and place in a warm spot to rise for about 90 minutes. Roll
dough into short ropes about 1/2 inch thick. Join ends to form a donut/bagel
shape. Set aside to rise for a few minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fill
a large saucepan half full of water--bring to a boil. Drop each Taralli into
water and boil for 1 minute. Remove from water and let both sides dry on a
sheet of waxed paper. Bake at 350 degrees on a lightly greased cookie
sheet, turning a few times during baking until medium brown and crisp.
