These pretzels are really good; I found them on a site called Kids Health Recipes. Sesame seeds are great on them, but your kids might like cinnamon & sugar. I hope you like them because my family and I sure did! :)
- 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, add the toppings, and take a bite! I hope you like them! :D.
My kids had fun making these. But they didn't like them (the yeast flavor was to strong), which was a good thing. DH ate most of them. We made these with 3 different toppings, colby-jack cheese, kosher salt and cinnamon sugar. I used an egg wash for the salt and sugar to help it stick. Made for Spring PAC 2010.
I made these with my daughter and we used serveral different toppings: poppy seeds, sesame seeds, coarse salt, and cinnamon and sugar. (We used an egg wash to help the toppings stick.) Notice that this recipe makes enough for twelve SMALL pretzels, but it was just the right amount for our family.
