Pretzels

Pretzels are generally topped with salt, but if your go to your nearest pretzel store, such as Auntie Annie's Pretzels, you will definitely find a variety of pretzels ranging from salty to sweet. I think Target is even making pretzels now in their food area, and they too have sugary pretzels and salty ones, as well as glazed and plain pretzels.

The following recipe is a rather tasty one. I'm a big fan of soft salty pretzels, but these definitely fit the mold of a good pretzel.

Because their homemade, they usually don't turn out looking like your Auntie Annie pretzels, but it's the taste that matters.

Ingredients and Utensils

Ingredients:

Shortening

1- 11- ounce pack of refrigerated breadsticks (usually they come in 8)

2 tablespoons of granulated sugar

1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon of margarine or butter

Utensils:

  • Baking sheet
  • Ruler
  • Measuring spoons
  • Small bowl
  • Spoon
  • Small saucepan or small microwave- safe bowl
  • Wax paper
  • Wire cooling rack
  • Hot pads
  • Pancake turner
  • Pastry brush

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350F, and go ahead and grease the baking sheet with the shortening.

Open the pack of bread sticks and remove them. Gently pull each bread stick on the counter top to make a rope of dough about 20 inches long.

Shape the dough into a pretzel by crossing one end over the other, forming a circle and leaving about 4 inch tails on either side. Then, holding each tail, you'll twist once at the crossover point. Carefully, lift the tails and place them over the center of the circle, and then over the edge. Tuck the tails under to make a pretzel shape.

Place the pretzels on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Put the backing sheet in the oven to back for about 15 to 18 minutes or until lightly brown.

While they're still baking, go ahead and sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon in the small mixing bowl and stir to mix.

Put the butter in the saucepan and heat on low until fully melted. Or, you can put the butter in a microwave- safe bowl and cover with wax paper; microwave for 20 seconds or until melted.

Place the cooling rack on top of a sheet of wax paper to catch the butter as it will drip off the pretzels.

When the pretzels are lightly brown, remove them from the oven and place on the cooling rack. Using the pastry brush, spread the butter on top of the pretzels and sprinkle the sugar- cinnamon mix on top.

The best results are eaten while still warm.
