We are having so much fun knocking things off our Summer List that we might just have to add some more...one thing we did add yesterday was making Homemade Pretzels. We went to the movies and Bella wanted some pretzel bites..but because I just CANNOT justify paying $7 for stale and tasteless pretzel bites...and not to mention unhealthy (Lord only knows what they bake into those things) I told Bella "sorry...but NO CAN DO"...and that we would make some at home after the movie. And let me tell you....yummy city!!!!
4 cups of flour...1 Tablespoon sugar....1 Tablespoon salt...1 package of yeast...1.5 cups of warm water...1 egg for eg wash and some kosher salt to top them off. Mix it all up in a bowl...knead on a floured surface...have a blast pulling and forming whatever shape you desire...egg wash them...and then pop those suckas into the oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. I am not simplfying ..it is actually that easy!
