- 1 1⁄8 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 1/2 pkg)
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 1⁄8 teaspoons salt
- 1 cup bread flour

- baking soda.
- Be certain to stir often.
- After dough has risen, pinch off bits of dough and roll into a long rope (about 1/2 inch or less thick) and shape.
- Dip pretzel into soda solution and place on greased baking sheet.
- Allow pretzel to rise again.
- Bake in a 450 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until golden.
- Brush with melted butter and enjoy!
- Toppings: After you brush with butter try sprinkling with coarse salt.
- Or for Auntie Anne's famous cinnamon sugar, try melting a stick of butter in a shallow bowl (big enough to fit the entire pretzel) and in another bowl, make a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.
- dip the pretzel into the butter, coating both sides generously.
- then dip again into the cinnamon mixture.
These have great flavor Mine seemed a bit thick so I guess it's a work in progress
