soft pretzels

Introduction

better than the mall pretzels and cheaper!! you can substitute the butter for a healthier version (but it just might not taste as good, ha). also, i have tried using wheat flour, and don't! it just tastes like wheat bagels. so live a little, reward yourself with a pretzel. you can also put sugar and cinnamon on them for a sweeter treat. they're not that bad in calories and fat. enjoy! better than the mall pretzels and cheaper!! you can substitute the butter for a healthier version (but it just might not taste as good, ha). also, i have tried using wheat flour, and don't! it just tastes like wheat bagels. so live a little, reward yourself with a pretzel. you can also put sugar and cinnamon on them for a sweeter treat. they're not that bad in calories and fat. enjoy!

    1/2 cup white sugar

Directions

1. in a small bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in 1.25 cups of warm water. let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
2. in a large bowl, mix together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt. make a well in the center; add the oil and yeast mixture. mix and form into a dough (either by hand or with a mixer). if the mixture is dry, add one or two tablespoons of water. if it's wet, add more flour. knead the dough until smooth, about 7 to 8 minutes. lightly oil a large bowl (i use pam baking or butter spray), place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil (pam spray). cover with towel and let rise in a warm place (i use my oven and just put the oven light on-don't want it to start baking!) until doubled in size, about 1 to 2 hours. remove dough and pound a few times; roll into ball and seal in air tight plastic bag. put in fridge for at least an hour-i do overnight (makes it easier to roll pretzels later, but this is just a personal preference).
3. preheat oven to 400 degrees F (play with this; it may be different for different ovens). in a large bowl, dissolve baking soda in hot water.
4. turn dough out onto a large surface and divide into 12 equal pieces. roll each piece into a rope and twist into a pretzel shape (or you could just make rods). once all of the dough is all shaped, dip each pretzel into the baking soda solution (i rest it on a spatula and let soak for about 10 seconds) and place on a greased baking sheet (i use pam baking spray on wax paper). sprinkle with kosher salt.
5. bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes, until browned.

makes about 12 pretzels
