1 1/2 cup lukewarm water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 package yeast


1 cup water, MIXED WITH
1 tablespoon baking soda

To Finish

melted butter
coarse salt


Place all pretzel ingredients in bread machine in order recommended by manufacturer, or as listed; set for dough cycle.

When finished, turn dough out on a lightly floured surface. With sharp kitchen shears (a pizza cutting wheel works great too) cut dough into equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 16 inch rope. Shape pretzel.

Dip both sides briefly into a bowl filled with with wash ingredients and place on a greased baking sheet.

Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Let pretzels rise for 15 minutes, then bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown.

Remove from oven and brush with melted butter and sprinkle with salt. I use margarita salt, but you can get rock salt and crush it with a rolling pin. If you want a sweet pretzel, sprinkle instead with sugar and cinnamon.

Try topping with Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning, or dipping into melted cheese, flavored cream cheese, or chocolate sauce.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
The soft pretzels you get at the mall or at fairs are my weakness. I can never pass them up. These are just as good if not better! Does anyone know if you can freeze them once they are made? As much as I'd like to eat them all in one sitting I had better not :)
