  • 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.
