Auntie Anne's Pretzles are long and thin. Aunie Anne's Pretzels can be found in shopping malls and airports everywhere. I find that the Auntie Anne's Pretzels are irresistable. I would like to thank Adrienne for this one! Many, many thanks.
Auntie Anne's Pretzels
Everyone will love these pretzels!
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
- 1 1/8 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 1/2 pkg.)
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 1/8 teaspoons salt
- 1 cup bread flour
- 3 cups regular flour
- 2 cups warm water
- 2 tablespoon baking soda
- To taste, coarse salt
- 2 - 4 tablespoons butter (melted)
Sprinkle yeast on lukewarm water in mixing bowl; stir to dissolve. Add sugar, salt and stir to dissolve; add flour and knead dough until smooth and elastic. Let rise at least 1/2 hour.
While dough is rising, prepare a baking soda water bath with 2 cups warm water and 2 tbsp baking soda. Be certain to stir often.
After dough has risen, pinch off bits of dough and roll into a long rope (about 1/2 inch or less thick) and shape. Dip pretzel in soda solution and place on greased baking sheet. Allow pretzels to rise again. Bake in oven at 450 for about 10 minutes or until golden. Brush with melted butter and enjoy!
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. Enjoy!Print Recipe
