Our whole family loves pretzels. These are so easy to make too. Hope you all like this one. Warm pretzels from the oven on a cold Winter day is so yummy.
You will need:
5 cups of flour
2 1/2 cups of water
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Yeast
1/4 cup of butter
Mix into dough, let rise once. About 5 minutes before rise get a large pot of water and add 1 Tbsp of salt. 1 2/3 Tbsp of baling soda and bring water to a simmer.
Take about two golf ball sizes of your dough and form into a pretzel shape.
Then drop into simmering water for 30 seconds.
Then place on a baking sheet that has a dusting of corn flour on it..
Let your pretzels rise once again in a warm place for about an hour or until their size doubles.
Before baking brush on some melted butter and sprinkle some salt or any seasonings you like.
Then bake in a preheated oven at 400F for 15 minutes until golden brown and delicious.
Recipe and instructions are all from my husband. He makes these with our grown kids because they love going to the mall for pretzels and just like every other dad out there in the world my husband always says “I can make you a better pretzel then that”.
You can melt Velveeta cheese and Campbell cheese sauce together for a dip. Or for a healthier dip just use different flavors of mustard sauces. Not getting anything for promoting those brands, just what our grown kids like.
You can also make pizza pretzels by topping with pasta sauce and sprinkling with Parmesan cheese. Happy pretzel baking everyone.
