The next recipe I have really enjoyed making for my family are baked soft pretzels. I make a batch of these, freeze them, then pop one in the microwave when I feel snacky! They are chewy, tasty, salty (or sweet) and satisfying. Yum!
Here’s how it’s done…..
1st make your dough. Again, I use a bread maker to make my dough using this recipe:
1 1/2 c warm water
1 1/2 t salt
1 egg, beaten
4 1/2 c flour
2 t yeast
After the dough cycle is complete (2 hrs) place the dough on a lightly floured surface.
Break a small ball of dough off and roll it out on a clean, dry surface.
At this point you can create whatever shapes, balls, rings, braids, twists you like. My family loves pretzel bites, so from a strip (pictured above) just cut it into 10, 2cm pieces.
After forming all your dough into pretzels, it’s time to boil them in a large pot of water with 1/2 c of baking soda mixed in.
- Bake at 400° for 15-20 min.
Let cool (if you can wait) and enjoy! We sure do!
