Soft Giant Pretzels
January 24, 2009

These are the best homemade pretzels. They are chewy and soft. I have made them many times and have always gotten rave reviews. They are gone within the hour. I brush them with melted butter and sprinkle the salt on before I bake them. It gives them a deep golden brown color and makes them extra tasty. *For those without a bread machine: combine the yeast, water and sugar in a bowl and let sit until it is foamy. Add your flour until it pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Knead it until smooth on a lightly floured surface. Place in a greased bowl and cover for 45-60 mins or until doubled. Then continue following the directions.* The water/soda bath is an important step because it helps the rising of the pretzels in the oven.
