• Homemade Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

    Remember those big soft cinnamon pretzels you’d buy at the mall after spending your babysitting money at Contempo Casual? These are like waaaay better. I think they might be my new guilty pleasure. Right out of the oven hot, sugary, and buttery-they’re amazing!

    Keep reading for the recipe and more photos of the process…

    Check out the recipe I followed here at Our Best Bites , and below are some photos of the process as well:

    The boiling with baking soda water (similar to making homemade bagels which I did here) is such a great trick to make the outside crusty and the insides soft!

      I found this recipe today and made them right away. Though they took time, it was easy and soooo worth the wait. My boys and I loved them….I still feel guilty for eating almost 2! Thanks for sharing!

      Malls will forever smell like those pretzels to me and even though I haven’t been in a mall in years, those memories would come flooding back if i smelled one of those pretzels. Have to try this recipe out!

      One of my favorite memories is a college trip with my daughter. We had just visited two schools and raced back to the train station in Philly to head back to NYC…The only option was a pretzel. We were so hungry…a pretzel and a lemonade never tasted so good. My daughter is now a high school senior…I may have to surprise her with these after school one day this week.
