I found this gem on Allrecipes.com. I have slightly altered it, but I still give kudos to Tim the original creator!

Ingredients

3 c
four, divided
1 Tbsp
active dry yeast
1 tsp
sugar (i use the organic)
2 Tbsp
butter, softened
1 1/3 c
warm water (110-120)
1/4 tsp
salt
3 Tbsp
baking powder
3 c
water
2 Tbsp
butter, melted
garlic powder
cinnamon and sugar
coarse sea salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, stir together 1 cup of flour, yeast, sugar, 2 tablespoons of butter, and 1 1/3 cup water. Let this mixture stand until bubble begin to form, about 15 minutes.
2
Stir in the salt and gradually stir in the remaining flour until dough can be picked up and kneaded on the counter. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes, adding more flour if needed.
3
Divide the dough into 6 pieces and let them rest for a few minutes.
4
Roll out one piece at a time into a rope about 15 inches long. Loop and twist into that cool pretzel shape. Set on a baking sheet while you roll out the remaining portions.
5
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C).
6
Bring the remaining 3 cups of water to a boil (remove from heat)and add the baking soda. Dip pretzels into the water bath for about 45 seconds, flipping over about halfway through. Place the soaked pretzels on a greased baking sheet.
7
Brush them with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse salt. OR!! you could add the garlic powder, or cinnamon/sugar to the butter and brush them with that...can you say YUM!?!
8
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
