Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

1 tbsp. yeast
1/2 c. warm water
1 tsp. honey
1 1/3 c. flour
2 tsp coarse salt


Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 degrees Celsius).


Put the yeast in a small bowl with the water and honey. Stir a little, then let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.


Mix the flour and salt together in a medium-size bowl.


After the 5 minutes is up, check on the yeast mixture. It should be bigger than before and a little bubbly. Add this mixture to the flour and salt mixture.


Stir everything together. Use a spoon to start. Finish with your hands. The dough is ready when it's still a little crumbly and flaky.


Put the dough on the cutting board and knead it like you are playing with clay. Knead it into one big ball.


Break off a piece of dough that's about the size of a big gumball or superball. Use your hands to roll it into a skinny snake.


Twist the snake into a medium-size pretzel shape, and put it on the cookie sheet. Do this with all the dough, making 12 pretzels.


Bake your pretzels for 10 minutes. Let them cool.
