Number of Servings: 4


    1/2 cup warm water
    3/8 teaspoon active dry yeast
    2/3 tablespoon brown sugar
    3/8 teaspoon salt
    1/3 cup bread flour
    1 cup regular flour
    2/3 cup Warm water
    2/3 tablespoon baking soda
    to taste coarse salt
    1 1/3 tablespoon ICBINB fat free (melted)


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.

While dough is rising, prepare a baking soda water bath with 2 cups warm water and 2 Tbsp 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 in soda solution and place on greased baking sheet. Allow pretzels to rise again. Bake in 450 oven for about 10 minutes or until golden. Brush with melted butter and enjoy!

Toppings: after you brush with butter try sprinkling with coarse salt. or 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 shallow 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. Enjoy!

    Family devoured them in minutes! Didn't really taste that much like Annie's to me... but they were delicious nonetheless!! - 8/4/12

    Just fantastic. I actually cheated and used frozen bread dough. I also made pretzel bites instead of whole pretzels, but the baking soda bath totally works. Super yummy. I will be making these again in the near future! (With whole wheat dough perhaps?) - 1/15/12

    Great Recipe!!! I have been searching for a recipe similar to Auntie Anne's and nothing has come close! This recipe is the closest I have found.. I like garlic pretzels so I melted the butter with some garlic, little basil, salt and sesame seeds and it was so good! Thanks!! - 5/8/09
