Auntie Ann's Pretzels
- 1 1/2 cup warm water
- 1 1/8 tsp.
active yeast (1 1/2 pkg)
- 2 Tbs. brown sugar
- 1 1/8 tsp. salt
cup bread flour
- 3 cups regular flour
- 2 cups warm water
- 2 Tbs. baking soda
- 2-4 Tbs. butter (melted)
- To taste coarse
- Sprinkle yeast on lukewarm water in mixing bowl; stir to dissolve.
- Add sugar, salt, and stir to dissolve; add flour and knead dough
until smooth and elastic. Let rise at least 1/2 hour.
dough is rising, prepare a baking soda water bath with 2 cups warm water
and 2 Tbs. baking soda. Be certain to stir often.
- After dough
has risen, pinch off bits of dough and roll into a long rope (about 1/2
inch or less thick) and shape.
- Dip pretzel into soda solution
and place on greased baking sheet. Allow pretzel to rise again.
- Bake in a 450 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until golden. Brush
with melted butter, and coarse salt if desired and enjoy!
- Variation: For Auntie Anne's famous cinnamon sugar, try melting a stick
of butter in a shallow bowl( big enough to fit the entire pretzel) and
in another bowl, make a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.
- Dip the
pretzel into the butter, coating both sides generously, then dip again
into the cinnamon mixture.
