Preparation method

  1. We will start by crushing the nuts as much as possible, if you wish you can pass them through a cheese grater or put them in the blender for a few seconds.

  2. After this we place them in a separate bowl while we continue with the preparation.

  3. In another bowl we place the flour and make a hole in the center of it.

  4. In another separate container, place the milk at room temperature and add a small spoonful of sugar along with a spoonful of yeast.

  5. Once the milk is beaten, we take this mixture and pour it into the center of the flour, slightly covering the edge of the flour.

  6. With the help of a cloth we cover the bowl and let it rest for about 20 minutes.

  7. Once the time has elapsed, we add the rest of our ingredients to the bowl.

  8. When adding the walnuts, we take out 3 tablespoons for decoration after finishing baking.

  9. We mix all the ingredients until we get a homogeneous dough.

  10. We will knead for a time of 10 minutes if we knead by hand.

  11. Once this time is over, we will use the cloth again to cover the dough for about 40 minutes in a place where there are no drafts, and it is warm.

  12. This time is average, since the ideal is to wait until the dough reaches twice its normal size.

  13. At this point we preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

  14. Once the dough is ready, we proceed to remove the gases by pressing it with our hands. And we divide it into 8 equal parts.

  15. We will lengthen each of the parts as if they were thick dough strings.

  16. You should have a churro of about 45 to 50 centimeters, leaving the edges of these finer than the rest of the body.

  17. Having this ready, we proceed to shape it into a pretzel. Starting by making a "U" and cross the ends together twice and bring to the center of the "U" and voilà, press the tips lightly to fix them.

  18. Having the pretzels ready, we place them on a tray with baking paper.

  19. Having the ready in the tray we let them rest a little more for a time of 15 minutes before taking them to the oven.

  20. At the end of the time, with the help of a brush, we put the mixture of the ingredients before baking.

  21. We take our tray to the oven for about 15 minutes and remove after this time.

  22. To give a sweeter flavor after taking them out of the oven when they are still hot with the brush we put the butter on it.

  23. After this we sprinkle the sugar, the cinnamon powder and the ground walnuts.

Ready, now just let them cool a little, and you can eat them with all the taste in the world.

If you want you can vary the mixture by changing the nuts for any other ingredient you want from chocolate to any fruit.
