1 1/2 cups warm water
1 1/8 tsp active dry yeast (1 1/2 pkg)
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 1/8 tsp salt
1 cup bread flour
3 cups regular flour

2 cups warm water
2 tbsp baking soda

coarse salt
2 - 4 tbsp butter (melted)

Sprinkle yeast on lukewarm water in mixing bowl; stir to dissolve.
Add sugar, salt and stir to dissolve; add flour and knead dough
until smooth and elastic. Let rise at least 1/2 hour.

While dough is rising, prepare a baking soda water bath with 2 cups
warm water and 2 tbsp baking soda. Be certain to stir often.

After dough has risen, pinch off bits of dough and roll into a long
rope* (about 1/2 inch or less thick) and shape. Dip pretzel in soda
solution and place on greased baking sheet. Allow pretzels to rise
again. Bake in 450 oven for about 10 minutes or until golden. Brush
with melted butter and enjoy!

After you brush with butter try sprinkling with coarse salt. or
cinnamon sugar, try melting a stick of butter in a shallow bowl
(big enough to fit the entire pretzel) and in another shallow bowl
make a mixture of cinnamon and suagr. Dip the pretzel into the
butter, coating both sides generously. Then dip again into the
cinnamon mixture. Enjoy!
