Soft Pretzels

We made pretzels this last week and they were the best pretzels we have ever made at home.
We used this recipe and it was not quite like walking right up to the lady in the mall and ordering straight from auntie annies, but it was pretty dang close.

We had this place in vista ridge mall that we used to go to that had the best pretzels.  I dont know what it was called- something obscure I am sure, but it was so good.  I wonder if its still there.  Vista Ridge Mall.  Now that was a long time ago.

Sass helped me roll it out.  She has the highest baking aspirations in the family.

I can always count on her to help me create something full of carbs or sugar.  Love her.
Then put butter on top (instead of an egg wash. I mean, doesnt butter sound better than raw egg?  I mean, I dont really know if it worked as well, but it was more fun just seeing the melted butter roll down the dough.  So goooood).
buttering pretzels
After they had butter all over them, we added some salt on top and cooked them for 6-8 min at 425 and then broiled them for 4 minutes to brown them.

They turned out pretty amazing.

Jeff put cinamon and sugar alllll over his and I really think that is a great way to go.  Also, the recipe has like 5 ways to season it and they all look so good.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
