A great snack for the kids and you can change it easily with brushing some different flavorings on top additions in the dough.

Some Great Suggestions!


For the garlic butter variation in the photo:

While still warm brush with 1 tablespoon each olive oil and 1 teaspoon melted butter and  shake in a ziplock bag adding 1/2 teaspoon each,  garlic powder, dried oregano, parsley and basil little black pepper or cayenne pepper.

For a sweeter version:

While still warm,  brush with melted butter and then dip or sprinkle in cinnamon sugar mixture.

Dipping suggestions:

Use Nutella as a dip with these pretzels.
Some like melted cheese to dip them in ( any kind you like).
Old time favorite mustard of choice for dipping

You can also add 1/3 cup of variations to the dough:

Add other additions to the dough for a different flavor during the flour stage of the recipe by adding your favorites,  such as chopped pepperoni, bell peppers, Asiago or other sharp long shreds of cheese, crumbled bacon or just fresh herbs like basil, rosemary, thyme and some minced garlic. You can try and make any other kinds of gourmet style pretzel ingredients you like with this dough as well.

Quick and Easy Soft Pretzel Dough

prep time: 15 min cook time: 10 min  hour total time: 1 hours 14 min

ingredients:


2 tablespoons sugar
1 packet dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
3 - 1/4 cups flour
1 - 1/4 warmed cup half and half

instructions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Prepare a cookie sheet with silapat or parchment paper.

in a large bowl using an electric mixer, add warmed half and half to a large electric mixing bowl with paddle. Let mixute sit in the bowl and stand around 10 minutes.

Add flour, salt and mix well in stand mixer for around 4 minutes.

 Add regular tap water to a 5 quart saucepan and fill with the addition of  + 1/4 cup baking soda added leaving 3 inches from the top.

Roll out the dough, cut into 4 pieces then roll into long ropes and then cut evenly with a sharp knife to make pretzel sticks around a thumbs length and an 1/2 inch wide. 

Place around 6 to 8 pieces into the boiling water at a time for around 30 seconds. Then remove with slotted spoon add to a silapat mat lined cookie sheet or lined with parchment paper cookie sheet.

Brush with some beaten egg mixed with a tablespoon of water and sprinkle with coarse salt (I used pink salt).

Bake until tops are nicely browned around 9 to 10 minutes depending on thickness you rolled them out too.

We love them brushed with herb and garlic or dipped in mustard and then the boys love these dipped in melted Mexican style cheese dip but again they are great plain!
