Kent is currently in Cincinnati for the week. He left yesterday and will return on Sunday.
Last weekend I read about Pioneer Woman making awesome looking pretzels. (Go here to read about it!) And Meredith and I decided that when Kent left for Ohio, we would make yummy pretzels to cheer us up.
Yesterday after school we started the recipe, and although both kids were totally distracted by other things by the time the pretzels were actually done, they both totally loved them.
We got the actual recipe on Smitten Kitchen (find it here.)
Yes, I made T, J, and M pretzels. The M worked the best - by far. Both the T and the J ones kind of came apart.
I made some with coarse salt on the top as the recipe indicates. But then I made some with cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top. And to kick it up a notch, I also made cream cheese frosting to dip the cinnamon/sugar ones in. You know, because a sweet pretzel isn't fattening enough by itself!
The cinnamon/sugar ones were our favorite. Meredith even had one for breakfast this morning.
Ok. Ok. So did I!
Kent, rest assured that this recipe will not be lost forever. We will make them when you are back home!
