Home Made Pretzels

When I was in London the other week, I visted Westfield Shopping Centre. Amidst the various snack stands was a pretzel stall selling the tastiest freshly baked pretzels. I had a cinnamon sugar pretzel which was delish.
I had wanted to have a go at making them myself and had recently seen a post on the Butter Hearts Sugar blog (http://www.butterheartssugar.blogspot.com/) This is a lovely blog and the recipe seemed really straight forward.
My pretzel shaping skills need improving though!

Just fresh out of the oven!
The smell was irresistable!
I sprinkled some of the pretzels with sea salt.

I also made some cinnamon sugar for coating.
You just mix a few tablespoons of sugar with a couple of teaspoons of ground cinnamon.

I brushed the freshly baked pretzels with some melted butter and then dipped them in the cinnamon sugar.
Mr G and I ate the whole lot within a couple of hours! Definitely a recipe I will be trying again. The possibilities are endless.....maple coated, chocolate dipped, rosemary and sea salt.
