Homemade Pretzels Recipe

I love having simple and easy recipes to make, that are also fun for kids to do.  This is definitely one of those recipes.  A great thing to make with little kids.  They can make their own creative pretzel shapes with this pretzel recipe.  

Tuesday night my husband, daughter and I went to the local baseball game. It was really fun. We left right before it got over so I don't know who won but we were one behind. I could smell the pretzels and I really wanted one, but then I remembered that I would be babysitting a neice and nephews on Wednesday, so I decided that in order to pass time in the small apartment we would make pretzels.

I ended up only having the neice so it wasn't that bad (except my daughter would not share her toys, ugh). The pretzels were a hit with both my daughter and neice. I actually really liked them also. I did not have course salt, but they still worked out.

This recipe is kinda sweet. I ate them with jam and it was really good.

Pretzels Recipe

1 1/2 c warm water

1/3 c sugar

1 1/4 tsp salt

1 beaten egg

1 tbsp yeast

1/2 c margaine melted (I used real butter and they turned out fine)

4-6 c flour

course salt

Combine all ingredients (even the egg and butter, I wasnt sure but it worked out) to make a soft dough. Knead for 5 minutes (I kneaded mine in the bosch for 4 minutes). Roll into ropes, then make pretzel shape. Drop into boiling water and boil for 5-10 seconds (the girls loved counting for each pretzel). Brush with beaten egg (a different egg than is in the ingredients list), sprinkle with salt. Bake at 400 (at least that is what I guessed, the first batch I did at 350 and they took 20 minutes and were not even brown) for 9-12 minutes (Mine ended up being 15 minutes) until golden brown

Pretzels recipe perfect for kids to make
I know that one of the pretzels looks more like a lump than a pretzel. Thats because it is a lump. That was my daughters masterpiece. The other two were mine. The neice took hers home. I hope that you enjoy this great activity even if you do it all by yourself.
