Pretzels the way you like them easy and fun for the kids to help!
Serves: 4
  • Dough
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons rapid mix yeast
  • ¼ cup margarine, softened
  • ¾ cup hot tap water
  • Topping
  • Your choice!
  1. In a large bowl mix half the flour, sugar, salt and yeast.
  2. Add softened margarine (if I'm lazy I just use oil)
  3. Gradually add the water and either beat with an electric mixer or by hand for a couple minutes.
  4. Gradually add flour while stirring to form a soft dough.
  5. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead for 8-10 minutes, the dough should be smooth and elastic once you're finished (another lazy tip - use the bread hook on your mixer and let it do the work for you!).
  6. Cover with greased plastic wrap then a towel and let rise for 20 minutes while you prepare the topping.
  7. Punch dough down, divide into four (for large pretzels) and roll out to form long snake like rolls and form into pretzels on a greased baking sheet.
  8. Spoon topping over pretzels and let sit on the counter for about 10 minutes, preheat oven to 400°F.
  9. Puncture any large bubbles with a greased toothpick before placing in oven.
  10. Bake at 400°F for 15-20 minutes, remove from oven and place on cooling racks to cool.
