How to make it

  • - In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in warm water. Let stand about 10 minutes.
  • - In a large bowl, mix together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt. Make a well in the center; add the oil and yeast mixture. Mix and form into a dough.
  • All the remaining 3 tbs warm water and knead the dough 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 think it works best to cover the bowl was a wet, warm dish towel and place the bowl in the over (off) with only the light on to keep it warm.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Dissolve baking soda in water over very low heat in a large pot.
  • When risen, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 10-12 equal pieces.
  • Roll each piece into a rope and twist into a pretzel shape.
  • Once all of the dough is all 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.
  • While pretzels are baking melt 1/4 c butter.
  • As soon as pretzels are done- brush generously with melter butter and sprinkle with salt.
  • Best eating right away!
