This recipe has quickly become a favorite at our house. They take almost no time to make, are extremely inexpensive, and we always have the ingredients on hand. Try them and you may never buy one from the place at the mall again!
1 1/4 cups water
1 tablespoon yeast
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 + cups flour
1/4 cup baking soda
1 1/2 cups hot water
Dissolve yeast into warm water. Add sugar, then flour & mix well---do not knead as this toughens the dough. Mix just until combined well. Let rise until doubled, at least 20 minutes. Roll into long ropes. Twist into pretzel shapes, then dip into prepared dipping solution (baking soda dissolved in hot water). Place on well-greased cookie sheet and bake at 500-550°F for 4-6 minutes until golden brown. Dip face of pretzel into melted butter and sprinkle with kosher salt.
