Soft Pretzels

I had the girls over for a baking day we made Soft Pretzels one of our all time favourites. This is Kelli's recipe, She had this one from her high school days. I hope you give this one a try you won't be disappointed

Soft Pretzels

3 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 envelope instant yeast
1 1/2 cup warm water (130 F)
4 t sugar
1 t salt
3 T baking soda
1 T sea salt

In a large bowl combine 1 3/4 cup flour
1 T sugar
1 t table salt
1 pkg yeast
Add the warm water, mix well. Stir in about 1 1/2 cup of flour until dough forms a ball and is easy to handle.
Knead for about 5 minutes. Place dough in an ungreased bowl, cover and let rise for about 1/2 an hour. Punch down and cut into 6 equal size pieces. Roll each piece to form a long rope about 20" to 24" long, form into a pretzel shape

and lay it on a lightly floured surface. Let pretzels rise until not quite double, about 20 minutes.

4 cups water
3 t sugar
3 T baking soda

Bring to a bare simmer and one at a time place each pretzel in for 20 seconds per side.

Remove from bath and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet with good side up. Sprinkle with coarse salt.

Bake in the centre of a 350 f preheated oven for 15 minutes or until nicely browned. Cool until lukewarm, dip into melted butter.
