I was just hoping you'd ask!
I have been making this for almost 15 years and believe me it will not disappoint!!
1 1/2 C. Warm water
1 1/8 T yeast
dissolve these together in a separate bowl
2 T. Brown Sugar
1/2 t. salt
1 C. bread flour
3 1/2 C. Regular flour
I just dump these last 4 ingredients into my mixer and mix well. Add the warm water. Mix again.
Cover and let rise 1/2 hour.
When done rising take small amount of dough and shape into pretzels.(if the dough is a little sticky just use a little flour.
Boil 2 C. Water with 2 T. Baking Soda
Dip pretzels in water mixture
Bake at 450 for 6-8 minutes.
Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with kosher salt.
This amount usually makes 2 pans.
We like to dip it in cheese sauce, cream cheese, or mustard.
This is so much fun to do for parties. Especially if children are involved. They love to shape the dough into all kinds of shapes. Their initials, airplanes,crosses,flowers; just use your imaginations....
Happy Baking and Eating!
I'm always up for new ideas so...
What are some traditions you do with your kids?
