Hot Pretzels
This recipe is courtesy of Kids Cooking Made Easy by Leah Schapira and Victoria Dwek.


3 tsp instant dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 Tbsp sugar
4 cups flour
1 tsp salt

1 cup water
2 tsp baking powder
coarse sea salt or kosher salt
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, melted

In a large bowl, combine yeast, warm water and sugar. Add in flour and salt and knead until smooth. You can use your hands or knead the dough with an electric mixer.

Grease a second bowl with nonstick cooking spray and place dough in the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap or a clean dish towel and let rise for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 425°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Divide dough into 8 equal parts. Roll each part into a rope about 26-28 inches long and form into a pretzel shape.

In a shallow bowl, combine water and baking powder. Place pretzels, one at a time, into the water. Pretzels should be completely under the water. Remove from bowl and place onto prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt. Let pretzels rest 5-10 minutes.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.

Brush melted butter onto hot pretzels immediately after taking out of the oven.
