I checked out a children’s cookbook called Honest Pretzels a couple of months ago. I am always trying to get the kids to spend more time creating in the kitchen. We decided to try out the pretzel recipe because I figured if a kid can do it (remember the cookbook is designed for the young chef), I can do it. So here is our first go-round of pretzel-making:
The water bath was much less intimidating than I expected. The whole process was really fun and the kids loved making their own pretzels.
After they came out of the oven we dipped them in melted butter and then a cinnamon-sugar mix. Really, really yummy. And ridiculously satisfying because a.) nothing beats super fresh baked goods, and b.) we made them with our own ten hands in the happy glow of our own home. Anna keeps asking for another round – perhaps next week . . . De-lish!
