Bread Machine Mall Pretzels...

Doesn't that look DIVINE!!!

I am telling you...
these are amazing and soooo easy to make!

Mall Pretzels...

1 1/2 cup lukewarm water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
4 cups flour (I used bread flour)
1 teaspoon salt
1 package yeast (2 1/4 tsp.)
1 cup water, mixed with
1 tablespoon baking soda

melted butter
Put ingredients into your bread maker and set on the dough cycle.  Let it do it's thang!

Pull the dough out and divide into 16 equal parts.  Roll each piece out into a rope about 16 inches long.  At this point you can either shape your pretzel or keep in a rope shape to make pretzel bites.  Dip into the wash and place on a greased cookie sheet.  If making bites, cut rope into little bite sized pieces with scissors and spread them out a bit.

Let the pretzels rise for 15 minutes.  While they are rising, preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Bake for 8-10 minutes.

Brush pretzels with melted butter and sprinkle with the topping of your choice.

I discovered how to make the 'powdery' cinnamon sugar and parmesan cheese like they have at the pretzel stores in the mall...just blend the tar out of em to get em all 'powdery' and good.  I have a ninja type blender that works wonders!

I found this recipe over at CDKitchen...Love it!

I am SCARED of all things bread - but maybe - just maybe because it is a mall pretzel and uses a machine I could swing this one. Thanks!
