I thought I would share this today since today is considered National Pretzel Day.
It was noted that pretzles were originally shaped to represent a childs arms folded in prayer.
For these Pretzles I used a simular recipe to this Antie Ann Copycat Pretzel Recipe.
I did not type it all out because there are so many online for you to choose from.
Try replacing some of the flour with a healthier choice like wheat.
After the dough is made and ready to form:
Form a log
Cut the log into 3 pieces
Roll each piece out into a long snake like my children say.
We rolled them as long as the table.
Join them together at the top and start braiding.
This is the tricky part. It was easier with the second person helping.
Braid the whole thing.
Then cut them to the size pieces you would like dip them in the baking soda water and salt them.
I forgot to get a picture of this step.
Bake them then butter the tops while they are warm.
This is them cooling I did not bake them this close together.
They are super yummy warm or cold.
These are great served at a Dinner in place of dinner rolls.
Children really love them.
Can serve them with mustard or other dipping sauces if you like.
We made a double batch to take a basket to a party and have a few to eat as well.
I joyfully recommend
