I’ve always wanted to try making pretzels, but it seemed like something too difficult. Then someone sent me this recipe from Food Mayhem foodmayhem.com/...soft-pretzels.html

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.

How to Make Soft Pretzels

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine warm water, 1 tsp sugar and yeast in your mixing bowl. Let sit until foamy.
  2. Add 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.
  3. Put a lid on it or transfer to a covered, greased bowl to rise until doubled.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 and grease a cookie sheet.
  5. Dissolve the baking soda in the hot water.
  6. Divide the dough into 12 pieces. Roll each into a rope, then shape into a pretzel or whatever shape you’d like.
  7. When 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.
  8. Brush with melted butter when they come out of the oven and sprinkle with coarse salt or cinnamon sugar.
