Homemade Pretzels

As much as I enjoy cooking and baking and trying out new recipes, I never in a million years would have thought that I'd ever say I made soft pretzels from scratch. But this weekend, that's exactly what I did. After coming across a simple recipe in this magazine (and after getting over my fear of working with yeast), I decided to be adventurous and give them a try.

The unorthodox "S" shape may not look traditional, but they tasted delicious- exactly like a classic pretzel. Boiling the pretzels for ten seconds before you bake them gives them a really authentic chewy bite.

I made them with whole wheat flour, since I had that on hand. Next time I'll use plain old white flour, which the recipe calls for. Or maybe try mixing in some cinnamon chips for a sweet pretzel.


  1. I'm impressed! I'm going to have to try that recipe.

  2. First off. You are the best.

    And now I want to do this...
