Make 'Mall' Pretzels at Home!

soft pretzels

Aunt Anne's gets me every time. And it's not just because I'm a bit peckish from an afternoon of power-shopping either. Those pretzels just smell so warm and buttery. Mmm. To fill our homes with that same scent would be wonderful and to get a pretzel out of the deal too, well, that would be the icing on the cake. And Christa Rose has the recipe to do just that.

To make a batch of 12, you'll need:

  • 4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt, for topping
