A little while back, hubby was off at drill, so I decided it would be the perfect night for some hot pretzle making! I found an Aunt Annie's Copycat recipe at Budget Savvy Diva.
We had a BLAST...
Some of us more than others; here we have Charlotte making flour angels...
But after only a few minor mishaps (like making the WRONG amount of yeast and having to go back and add another packet) we had some good looking hot pretzles.
Not as yummy-greasy as Aunt Annie's (you know what I'm talking about), but super fun all the same!
In case the original post goes missing, here are the instructions from Budget Savvy Diva
What You Need
- 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons table salt
- Kosher Salt for Topping
- 1 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon butter (melted)
- 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
- 1 1/4 cups + 2 tablespoons warm water
What To Do
- Prepare yeast as instructed on the packet
- Add oil to the yeast and stir.
- In a separate bowl mix place powdered sugar, butter, flour and salt. Mix. Place yeast mixture into the dry ingredient bowl.
Flour a surface and knead the dough for about 10 minutes.
Place dough in a covered bowl ( I use plastic wrap) and let it rest for about an hour at 80 degrees. Dough should double in size.
Preheat oven at 425
Take dough and cut into 8 sections. And roll into a long rope.:
