I really like pretzels because they are super easy and they are so TASTY! I took this recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction, and my pretzels really worked out well! I also made a spicy cheese dip, for by pretzels and it made this dish very special.
I like this dough recipe because you only need one bowl, and you can put all the ingredients inside of it!
After you've soaked the pretzels in the baking soda bath; bake for 12 minutes.
1 and 1/2 cups warm water
1 packet active dry or instant yeast (2 and 1/4 teaspoons)
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and slightly cool
2 -2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
coarse sea salt for sprinkling
Baking Soda Bath
9 cups water
1/2 cup baking soda
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup milk
1/2 cup chedder cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees, and butter a baking sheet.
Mix yeast and water and let sit for a minute. Slowly add all the ingredients making sure you add the flour last. Knead for a few minutes and let chill in the fridge for 10 minutes.
Roll dough and fold in to a circle and then twist. Flip over and repeat for remaining pretzels.
Place 1 pretzel at a time, in the bath and wait 30 seconds until placing on the baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes and save.
Meanwhile, make cheese dip by adding butter and flour together for 3 minutes. Add milk and stir until thickened. Add cheese and spices. Serve with pretzels.
