Every chance we get…we always PICK up pretzels from Auntie Anne in our mall. I remember when we used to visit my parents and they had one in the Walmart store. I love the almond flavor ones…so I will attempt that one day 😉
I been seeing many of my instagram acct that I been following making different types of pretzels and so I wanted to attempt it especially since we been home all day now ….I have time to wait for the dough to rise haha
I will definitely be making these again.
- 1½ cup warm water
- 2¼ tablespoon ACTIVE yeast
- 2 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 teaspoon fine salt
- 4 cup all purpose flour
- ½ cup baking soda
- 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
- course salt
In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the WARM water. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes then add in the salt and stir. Next, add in the flour and KNEAD the bread hook or by hand for about 5 minutes.
Next, place the dough in an OILED BOWL. and cover. Store the dough in a warm place for about 1 hr…it should double in size.
Preheat OVEN to 425°F.
Divide the dough evenly …I only got 9 pretzels out of my dough. Roll each piece a rope and twist it into a pretzel shape.
Before you BAKE the pretzel…the pretzels need to be in a baking soda bath. In a medium size pot…bring 8 cups of water and 1/3 cup baking soda to a boiled. Once the water is boiling …place each pretzel into a slotted spoon and drop the pretzel into the baking soda water for about 30 seconds. Remove the pretzel and place onto a prepared baking sheet (lined with parchment paper).
Bake each pretzels for about 12-14 minutes. Depending on the thicken of the pretzels. Bake until the pretzels are a GOLDEN BROWN color.
As soon as you remove from the oven…brush the pretzels with BUTTER and sprinkle with course salt. You can serve it with your favorite cheese sauce.
SIDE NOTE: I used the cheese from Walmart ..its delicious!!
