Add 1/2 cup [3/4 cup] water, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon [3/4 teaspoon] salt, bread flour, sugar, and yeast to bread machine pan in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough/manual cycle. When cycle is complete, remove dough from machine to a lightly floured surface. If necessary, knead in enough flour to make dough easy to handle. Roll into a 12 x 4-inch [14 x 6-inch] rectangle. With sharp knife, cut into eight 12 x 1/2-inch [twelve 14 x 1/2-inch] strips. Gently pull each strip into a rope about 14 [16] inches long. To shape into pretzels: Curve ends of each rope to make a circle; cross ends at top. Twist ends once and lay over bottom of circle. Place on greased baking sheet[s]. Do not let rise.
Combine egg and 1 tablespoon water; brush on pretzels. Sprinkle with coarse salt or sesame seed. Bake at 350oF for 18 to 20 minutes or until done. (For even browning when using two sheets, switch sheets halfway through baking.) Remove from sheet[s]; cool on rack. Makes 8 [12] pretzels.
Cycle: Dough/manual cycle.
