There are certain things that you love to eat as a kid and never stop loving. This is one for me. If I could, I would eat a cinnamon pretzel every day. To me, it has everything you need to feel good: warm bread, cinnamon sugar, and butter. A warm pretzel makes a great breakfast treat or after school snack, and can be made easily at home if you buy ready-made pizza dough. If you are so inclined, it is also a great use for homemade bread dough – you could use a basic bread dough recipe or something like the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day technique which allows you to store the dough in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
I don’t give quantities here, just use the amount you need!
Cinnamon Soft Pretzel
- bread dough of your choice – I use whole wheat
- salted butter
- cinnamon sugar
Roll bread dough into a snake and twist into a pretzel shape, or into a ring for quicker baking time. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Allow to rest for 15-20 minutes on the pan if you have the time, but this is not necessary.
Bake at 400 until golden brown, around 15-20 minutes, depending on thickness. When it comes out of the oven, brush on both sides with butter and sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar. The more the better…duh!
