These very things (and the fact that I only have only $5 left to my name, so going out was not an option) are what made me decide yesterday afternoon that I want to bake some type of bread. So I sat down with some cookbooks and began exploring for recipes. As I flipped through one of the books I came upon a recipe for pretzels. I love pretzels so much, every time I go in the mall I always get a cinnamon and sugar pretzel, I must admit there lie a drug. So being that this sweet, bread treat is a weakness of mine I thought that I should attempt to make some of my own.
So here is my afternoon of pretzel making:
before my dough rose and 2 hours later doubled in size (yeah yeast!!!)
Before boiling and baking....tada!!!!...Hot Pretzels ready to eat!!!
This was tons of fun and the pretzels turned out delicious. After they cooled down a little I brushed them with butter and sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar, yummy. I was pretty happy with my first batch of pretzels.
Life advice for the day: Make something with yeast at least once, its like magic! : )
