IN THE KITCHEN today we made homemade pretzels! They are the best! All my kids love making them and especially eating them! It was great fun. What a great way to spend a wet day, by playing with dough you can eat!
Here's the recipe:
1 pkg dry yeast 4 cups flour
1 1/4 cup warm water 1/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp salt 1 beaten egg
1 Tbsp sugar
Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Then add the sugar and salt, stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Then add the flour and melted butter. Stir until it starts to become stiff and then move to the counter and kneed until elastic. Divide dough into small equal pieces. Roll into "snakes" and twist. Place them on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Brush with egg wash and add coarse salt (if desired) and bake at 375 for 15 minutes, until golden.
A great snack for a day of sewing! Enjoy!
Happy stitching! May your bobbin always be full!
