We love these tasty cinnamon pretzels by Local Food Britain member, Laura Scott of How To Cook Good Food. Delicious Halloween fun to enjoy with your kids this autumn.
“Halloween cinnamon crusted pretzels are my bake of choice for October 31, Halloween,” says Laura.
Pretzels have always been a firm favourite in our house and I have tried so many recipes over the years. But these pretzels are definitely streets ahead of most and that is down to two things.
One – I never usually boil the pretzels. Partly because when teaching, it would be too dangerous and partly because I didn’t have the time to incorporate this extra step of the process.
Two – the mixture, which contains a generous amount of bicarbonate of soda/baking soda.
The recipe which I based these pretzels on is by Sally’s Baking Addiction, and I am convinced that it’s her baking soda water that got my pretzels to form the best crust – a perfect crisp exterior with a chewy bake-like crumb which soaks up the buttery cinnamon sugar crystals as well as the sticky icing."
