Pretzel Recipe:

Serves 4

Pin Me! 003

 

What you need:

{Dough}

2/3 cup warm water
3/4 tsp. active yeast
1 Tbs. brown sugar {packed}
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups flour

{Dipping solution}

2 cups hot water

2 Tbs. baking soda

{Topping}

2 Tbs. butter

Coarse sea salt

 

For the dough, mix together water, yeast, and sugar. Let that mixture sit for 2-3 minutes.

Add in your salt and flour.  Knead for five minutes or until the dough becomes smooth.

Roll the kneaded dough into a ball, place in an oven safe bowl, and let rise for 30 minutes in a warm place. {Do not put it in such a warm place that it cooks! Been there…done that :)}

 

While you are waiting for the dough to rise…make the water solution. Mix together the hot water and baking soda, and stir until the baking soda dissolves.

 

After the dough has risen, pinch off a ¼ of dough and roll into a long rope.
Form the dough into the traditional pretzel shape. {Or any shape you want}

 

Dip the pretzel dough into the baking soda solution, and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake in a 450 degree oven for about 5 minutes.  When 5 minutes is up, quickly brush with melted butter and place them back in the oven for another 5 minutes until golden brown.

When they are out of the oven, brush again with some melted butter.

A Tutorial of Deliciousness…

The Ultimate Brownie Recipe!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

recipe 134

If you like nuts in your brownies, start by toasting about a cup to a cup and a half of pecans in a medium sauce pan on low heat. 

recipe 101

Once toasted, lay your nuts on a plate or paper towel, making sure to spread them out evenly so they cool faster. 

 

 

Begin by MELTING your butter.

 

 recipe 093

Cream the melted butter and sugar together in a large bowl.

 

 recipe 097

Add in both your eggs and mix well with an electric mixer.

 

 recipe 104

Now add in your vanilla, oil, cocoa powder, and flour, a little at a time.

Mix until smooth.

 

 recipe 107

Scrape down your bowl and add in your toasted and cooled pecans.

 

 recipe 112

Pour in your white chocolate chips.  I chose white chocolate because you can see them against the darkness of the brownie when you bite into them.

At this point, I give you full permission to use this picture as your desktop background.  It is much to delectable to forget about.

 

 

recipe 122

Now this is an important step! Grease and foil a 9 x 13” pan.  (All this means is to line your pan with foil and grease the foil.)

 

Now pour your batter into your lined baking pan.

 

Bake on 350 degrees for 30 – 35 minutes, or until a toothpick, when inserted into the middle, comes out with brownie crumbs!

Have a great and delicious day!
