I should be at church-- I went through 10 pounds of flour and made pretzels and put together a stunning basket that I saved up for to have blessed by the priest. Got the kids in my car and it wouldn't start!
Anyway-- here I am making pretzels worthy of a German biergarten making them much bigger makes it hard to get them out of the boiling water. The kids absolutely love it when I bake pretzels. You make the dough—basic bread with no oil but you add brown sugar, do the folded arms shape, let them rise then put them in a pot of boiling baking soda water for 10 seconds, flip and boil for another 10 seconds, then bake at 475 for 15 minutes or until golden. The kids get into it with me.
