I used what I had on hand, so I substituted Unbleached white flour with a wholesome Wheat flour. This recipe is very simple, with no fat added. It is low in Salt too because the only salt added is what you sprinkle on top. The look on my Hubby's face to come home to Hot Pretzels cooling on the rack, was well worth the effort. As far as the rolling the dough and making shapes, this would also be a great recipe to make with kids. The dip in the boiling water with baking soda should be left to the adults though.
- 1 Package active dry yeast (2 tsp)
- Warm water (1/8 Cup-105°f/30ml-40°c)
- Warm water (1 1/3 Cup/315ml)
- Brown sugar (1/3 Cup/80 grams)
- Flour (4 1/2 Cups/520 grams)
- Baking Soda
- Pot of water
Tear off some dough and roll a long thick pencil shape with your hands. Pick up both ends, cross to form rabbit ears and then twist the ends and pull them back to the rest of the loop. Place aside on lightly floured surface and let rise a few minutes.
