4/26/2013 National Pretzel Day!

Yesterday, April 26th was National Pretzel Day!!! So this post was suppose to be uploaded yesterday, but a few hours late will do :)

I found an easy homemade pretzel recipe over at Marin Mommies that we made and the pretzels came out amazing!

   Pretty simple! To make Homemade Soft Pretzels you need:
  • 1 envelope active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg + a few teaspoons water for egg wash  (or olive oil)
  • Salt for sprinking
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Dissolve yeast in 1/2c warm water. Add honey and salt and mix. Stir in flour until a dough forms. Place dough on a floured surface and knead til smooth. Cut pieces of dough and roll into long cylinders. Twist into the pretzel shape then bush with premade egg wash or olive oil and sprinkle with salt. You could also sprinkle cinnamon sugar for a sweet treat! Bake in oven for about 10 minutes or until golden. Let cool some when done, eat warm. Delicious!

Makes 6-8 soft pretzels depending on size. I made 4 bigger pretzels with cinnamon and sugar on (a little dry by taste great dipped in a little honey!) ant then my son made 2 "8" shaped in cinnamon sugar, then we did 5 smaller pretzels sprinkled with sugar and Parmesan cheese (my favorite!). A total of 11! A great afternoon snack. This is for sure a recipe I'll keep!
