April's StoryI’ve always wanted to try making pretzels, but it seemed like something too difficult. Then someone sent me this recipe from Food Mayhem www.foodmayhem.com/2009/02/...
I don’t think mine turned out as pretty, but they were definitely good. Around $1 for all the ingredients used, so very affordable to make.
1 1/4 c
warm water, 110 - 120 degrees
sugar, divided use
whole wheat flour
3 1/2 c
all purpose flour

1Combine warm water, 1 tsp sugar and yeast in your mixing bowl. Let sit until foamy.
2Add vegetable oil, 3 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar and both salts. Set mixer to knead for 5 minutes. Add remaining cup of flour while it’s kneading.
3Put a lid on it or transfer to a covered, greased bowl to rise until doubled.
4Preheat oven to 450 and grease a cookie sheet.
5Dissolve the baking soda in the hot water.
6Divide the dough into 12 pieces. Roll each into a rope, then shape into a pretzel or whatever shape you’d like.
7When all pretzels are shaped, dip them into the baking soda water then place on the greased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until browned.
8Brush with melted butter when they come out of the oven and sprinkle with coarse salt or cinnamon sugar.

I didn't have any wheat flour in the house, so I just used all purpose instead. They came out great! Delicious :)
