Twisted sister……pretzels 😆

Standard

The next recipe I have really enjoyed making for my family are baked soft pretzels.   I make a batch of these, freeze them, then pop one in the microwave when I feel snacky!  They are chewy, tasty,  salty (or sweet) and satisfying.   Yum!😋

Here’s how it’s done…..

1st make your dough.  Again, I use a bread maker to make my dough using this recipe:

1 1/2 c warm water

1T sugar

1 1/2 t  salt

1 egg, beaten

4 1/2 c flour

2 t yeast

After the dough cycle is complete  (2 hrs) place the dough on a lightly floured surface.

Break a small ball of dough off and roll it out on a clean, dry surface.

At this point you can create whatever shapes, balls,  rings, braids, twists you like.  My family loves pretzel bites, so from a strip (pictured above) just cut it into 10, 2cm pieces.

After forming all your dough into pretzels, it’s time to boil them in a large pot of water with 1/2 c of baking soda mixed in.

  • Bake at 400° for 15-20 min.

Let cool (if you can wait😆) and enjoy! We sure do!
