I ran across this recipe a few weeks ago and HAD to try it. Last night was the night and, let me tell you, this is SUPER easy and so so so so good.

The recipe is very simple with ingredients that are usually on hand:

2-3 cups bread flour
1 tsp yeast
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 cup warm milk (110 degrees, or about a minute in the micro)
1 tsp. salt

Mix all of these together until they form a ball. Start with 2 cups of flour and then add it a tablespoon at a time until it becomes workable with your hands.

Knead the dough for 5 to 10 minutes. Let it relax for 5 more minutes

Meanwhile, get a pot of water and 4 tbsp. baking soda to a simmer.

Cut your dough into 6 pieces. Roll them into "snakes" and make the pretzel shape. Carefully, with a spatula, dunk the pretzels into the simmering water for 5 seconds. They should begin to float.

Take them out and place them on a greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with Kosher salt and bake for 12 to 14 minutes at 425 degrees.


I ate mine with cream cheese....so delicious.

I made these today and they were fantastic.  The only thing I would mention is that it would probably have been a little easier to shape them if I had let the dough rest some more after rolling it out into snakey shapes.  But they are delicious!

My daughter and her boyfriend make these frequently . . . yummy!  Because we all dip the pretzels, they just make them into pretzel "sticks" about five inches long rather than trying to shape them.  It works really well!  Enjoy!
