I've loved Auntie Anne's Pretzels from the first time I tried it in the Philippines in the late 90's. Since then until now, it's one of those things that I just couldn't resist when I'm at the mall. How could I, when I can smell its wonderful aroma wafting over from like hundred feet away. But it's not just me, the hubs and the girls love Auntie Anne's too, and we all have the same favorite flavor --- Cinnamon Sugar. We never fail to buy some whenever we pass by an Auntie Anne's store. But when we feel like eating our favorite soft pretzels and we 're too lazy to go to the mall, we just make some at home.
Yes, you read it right! We make pretzels at home! Whenever we crave for soft pretzels, we just whip them up at home...just like what we did last weekend. Thanks to this recipe from Food Network that I found a few years ago, we can enjoy homemade pretzels anytime. No need to stand and wait in a long line at the mall!
You should try this, I tell yah! Not only are these pretzels better tasting than store bought ones, they are also way cheaper! Making them is also a good way to spend time with your kids! You'll all have so much fun rolling, stretching and shaping the dough...and I'm sure your kids will learn a very important lesson...i.e., store bought food can be made even better at home. ;)
