This recipe for pretzels uses traditional Irish soda bread dough instead of a yeast based dough. It's quick and works great! These pretzels come out great, just like the street vendor type.

  • In a large bowl, sift together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, and baking soda. Stir in buttermilk and honey until dough pulls together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead briefly to form a firm dough.

  • Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a cylinder approximately 12 inches long. Form into classic pretzel shape. Pinch ends to seal. Dip pretzels in baking soda solution and then place on lightly greased cookie sheets.

  • Sprinkle pretzels with kosher salt, and bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
