Get Your Pretzels!
I enjoy a good, hot pretzel every-now-and-then. Usually I have to go to church to get one (don't all churches sell pretzels? ;) ) or a baseball game. Well the other day my mom had a day off of work and came over to my house. This is a big treat for us -- especially me. I enjoy another set of hands around the house during the day to help with the kids. She came in carrying a bowl of sour-dough starter and the ingredients to make homemade pretzels.
One of our finished pretzels! Yes, it looks like a donut. There is an art to pretzel-dough-folding and we haven’t mastered it yet. It doesn’t matter----we loved the end result not matter what it looked like :)
This was a treat for me. I appreciate my mom planning this whole activity and doing it with my children. I was able to sit back and tend to other things while my kids were busy making memories and learning a new skill. Since I did not make this myself, I have no idea what recipe she used, but it does seem like this buttery soft pretzel recipe is very similar.
