Mixing your pretzel dough

Are the kids helping you? As you can see, there is something to do for each member of  the family.

Encourage your customers to post their pictures of making the pretzels on your Facebook fan page.

  • Open your active dry yeast packet (included) & dissolve it in 1-1/4 cups lukewarm water.
  • Let it sit for about 2 minutes.
  • Take your dough mix (included) and slowly mix it into your yeast mixture until you can make a ball out of it.
  • Lightly flour your kneading surface. Now knead your dough ball for approximately 5-7 minutes.
  • Take your dough ball & place it into a large greased bowl.
  • Cover this bowl with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.
  • Let the dough sit for 30 minutes in a warm spot so it can rise.

Ready to TWIST and Shout?

  • Preheat your baking oven to 425°F.
  • Next spray some nonstick spray on your counter & pour out the risen dough.
  • Take your dough and cut it into strips approximately 1-1/2” wide x 8” long.
  • Next roll and stretch those strips until it is a 36”x1/2” long pretzel dough rope.
  • Now shape your dough rope into the classic pretzel shape format.

Baking your Auntie Anne’s Pretzels

  • Get 4 cups of hot tap water and pour them into a bowl (do not boil it.)
  • Stir the baking soda into the hot water until it dissolves.
  • Use nonstick spray to lightly coat your baking tray.
  • Briefly dip each pretzel into the baking soda solution
  • Put pretzels on a greased baking tray & salt to flavor. (BTW don’t salt your cinnamon pretzels!)
  • Bake one tray at a time for just 5 minutes.
  • Rotate the pretzel tray 180° and bake for approximately 2-5 minutes. Tip: you will know they are done when they are a delicious golden brown.

Who is hungry?

  • If you would like, take melted butter and brush your freshly baked pretzels.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon on top of the melted butter for cinnamon pretzels.
