Soft Pretzels

I picked my oldest up from school and decided to take her out for a treat at our local Farmer's Market.  We enjoyed a soft pretzel and lemonade.  She asked about how they made the pretzels and told her that we would make them at home.  Both of my older girls got involved and tried to make pretzels, well the one just wanted to eat the dough.  Here is the homemade pretzel that we made!  I got this recipe from an old youth group leader. 

1 1/4 c. Warm Water
1 Tbsp Yeast
1/4 c. Brown Sugar
1 1/2 c. Bread Flour
1 1/2 c. Regular Flour
Dissolve the yeast in the water.  Stir in the remaining ingredients.  Let rise for 20 minutes.  Shape & dip into soda water (recipe below).  Sprinkle with pretzel salt.  Bake till slightly brown.  Dip or brush on melted butter and serve.  Bake at 400 for 10 minutes.

Soda Water:
1/2 c. Water
2 Tbsp Baking Soda

FYI: Spray the cookie sheet with Pam to avoid the pretzels from sticking.

Alterations:  I did not have any bread flour so I used all regular flour and they turned out great.

We used to make soft pretzels when we were kids--such fun memories!

I need to do this with my boys; they would love it.

Thanks!! :)

My boys (10 & 4) and I made these this afternoon - yum! I used 2 cups of unbleached flour and 1 cup of whole wheat and they turned out well. We'll have to work on presentation :), but they tasted (and smelled) great!

I've been looking for a pretzel recipe that did not require boiling and was so excited to find this one.
