I called these Turkish Pretzels only because they are salty.  Otherwise they don't really taste or look like pretzels.  No reason you can't shape them the same way.  it is just that this is the "official" shape of them.

2 eggs (Separate the yolk of 1 for glaze)
125 gr. unsalted butter or margarine
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon mahlep (although optional, this gives it a nice smell)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 lemon juice

Top: Sesame seeds and blackened sesame seeds

  • Mix all of the ingredients except 1 egg yolk and flour together
  • Start adding flour a little at a time until you get a soft dough (A little more than 2 cups).  Dough should stick to your hand just a little
  • Make any shape you like
  • Line an oven pan with cooking paper
  • Put your "pretzels" on the pan
  • Mix egg yolk with 1 tablespoon cold water and brush on the "pretzels"
  • Sprinkle sesame seeds
  • Preheat oven at 350
  • Cook until the top is golden brown (Approx 25 minutes)
