Delicious, super yummy pretzels!  I've made them before with a different recipe and it never was right.  This time it was perfect!  YUM!

Try them, I dare you!

Maybe you would like the recipe?  Yes?  Ok....here it is...

Makes 12 pretzels (I got 13)

4 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp white sugar
1 1/4c. warm water
5c. all purpose flour
1/2c. white sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp. vegetable oil or olive oil
1/2c. Baking Soda
4c. hot water
1/4c. kosher salt, for topping

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast & 1 tsp. sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, 1/2c. sugar, & 1 1/2tsp. of salt.  Make a well in the center; add the oil and yeast mixture.  Mix and form into a dough.  If the mixture is dry, add 1 to 2 tbsp of water. (I had to use about 1/4c. more of water)  Work that dough and knead it until smooth, about 7 to 8 minutes.  Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil.  Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size; about 1 hour (I did it about 1 hr. and 45 mins!). 
Preheat oven to 450.  In a large bowl, dissolve baking soda in hot water.
When risen, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 12 equal pieces.  Roll each piece into a long rope and twist into a pretzel shape.  Once all the dough is shaped, dip each pretzel into the baking soda solution and place on a greased baking sheet.  Sprinkle with Kosher salt.
Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes, until browned!
