Homemade Baked Pretzels

Updated Note: I first posted this recipe 3 years ago and am now reposting it as a family favorite, along with an updated picture. My kids get excited whenever I make these.

This is one of our favorite recipes and everyone else I have made it for has really enjoyed it too. It's also super easy and a fun recipe for kids to help you with. If you use red wheat flour, you may need to use a portion of refined white flour instead of all whole wheat flour to make it pliable enough to shape into pretzels. But if you use white wheat flour, as we do, no refined white flour is needed.

(makes 12)

Stir 1/8 c. honey into 1 1/2 c. warm water in large bowl (or bread mixing bowl).

Sprinkle 1 Tb. yeast. Let sit 5 min.

Stir in 4 c. whole wheat flour. Kneed (or let mixer mix). Divide into 12 lumps and let rest 5 min.

Make 12 ropes, form into pretzel or other shape.

Boil 1 c. water with 2 tsp. baking soda in shallow pan. Place pretzel in water for 10 seconds.

Place on greased cookie sheet and sprinkle with margarita salt (found in liquor section of grocery store) or course Kosher salt.

Bake at 450 for 8 min.

Enjoy with honey butter or other dipping sauce.
