  Baking soda 2 Tablespoon

  Butter 4 Tablespoon, melted
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Preheat the oven to 45 degree F.

MAKING
2. Sprinkle yeast on lukewarm water in mixing bowl; stir to dissolve.
3. Add sugar, salt and stir to dissolve; add flour and knead dough until smooth and elastic.
4. Let rise at least 1/2 hour.
5. While dough is rising, prepare a baking soda water bath with 2 cups warm water and 2 Tbsp baking soda.
6. Be certain to stir often.
7. After dough has risen, pinch off bits of dough and roll into a long rope (about 1/2 inch or less thick) and shape.
8. Dip pretzel in soda solution and place on greased baking sheet.
9. Allow pretzels to rise again.
10. Bake in 450 oven for about 10 minutes or until golden.

SERVING
11. Brush with melted butter and enjoy!

TIPS
Toppings: after you brush with butter try sprinkling with coarse salt. or for Auntie Anne's famous Cinnamon Sugar, try melting a stick of butter in a shallow bowl (big enough to fit the entire pretzel) and in another shallow bowl make a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Dip the pretzel into the butter, coating both sides generously. Then dip again into the cinnamon mixture.

The longer and thinner you can make the dough rope, the more like Auntie Anne's they will be.
