Food is a pretty big part of my life. Like, I really enjoy it more than I should, type of part of my life. Yet, I noticed I haven’t posted any recipes lately so I’m going to remedy that right now. Here is the recipe for my pretzel twist. You could just as easily make pretzels or pretzel bites with this recipes, I just did twist. There is a pdf of the recipe below if you would like to print it.

- 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 1/8 teaspoons salt
- 1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
- 2 tablespoons baking soda
Add yeast, brown sugar and salt in 1 1/2 cups warm water. Once dissolved stir in flour
Other than letting it rise this is the longest part…kneading. I don’t flour the surface, I just throw it on the counter and go to town for 8-10 minutes until it is smooth
Put the dough in a greased bowl, cover, and leave to rise for one hourOnce the dough has risen mix 2 cups warm water and baking soda in dish
Cut into 24 pieces. Roll each piece into a rope that about a foot and a half
Twist and dip into the baking soda solution. Put on baking sheets, and let rise another 20 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse salt
