It's January. It's cold. It seems like the perfect time to make some homemade pretzels, don't you think? Which is exactly what we did the other day!
I don't make this recipe very often because there is some time involved (mostly waiting for the dough to rise). But what I love about it is that it's pretty easy to do, and you only need two main ingredients: flour and a packet of dry yeast. Well, those two things and mustard. I must have mustard with my homemade pretzels!
I was so happy to have a little helper in the kitchen when I made them. She was so excited to roll the dough and make it into pretzel shapes:
Roll them, shape them, let them rise about 15 minutes more, bake them & then you're set. Warm, straight-from-the-oven pretzel goodness, topped with coarse salt or cinnamon sugar (it's a toss up in our house which is best).
Pass me the mustard, please!
