Today we made pretzels for the first time!
This is the first pretzel I have ever "tied". Ever. (Before baking.) Aren't you impressed? ;)
Here's how to do it:
First roll the dough into long snaky strips.
Then take one and cross it over as shown.
Wrap it around once.
Fold it down.
Then we dipped it in a weird mixture of water, egg whites, and baking soda.
Sprinkle on a little salt, and they're ready to bake!
Have you tried anything new lately?
