PRETZELS!!

My dear friend Liz shared this recipe with me and it was just to good not to pass along. I mean who doesn't love a big soft pretzel dipped in cheese or mustard!

1/4 oz package of yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 T. Honey

Mix this ingredients together and let sit for 5 minutes to activate yeast

1 1/2 c. flour

Add this to the yeast mixture and mix (I found a little extra water may need to be added to make it all stick together)

Knead dough for 5-7 minutes and then place in a greased bowl for 20 minutes to rise.

Shape the dough into whatever shape you wish and then dip it in a solution of 1 T. Baking Soda and 3/4 C. water (You can eyeball it). Place on a greased cookie sheet and then sprinkle with coarse salt.

Bake at 425 for 5-7 minutes.

They are seriously soooo good! I hope you all enjoy!

Thanks for the recipe. I just might use it today! And I'm glad to hear the good news about your new little man. Hopefully he won't decide to grow exponentially in the next few weeks!
