Of course all this snow in Northeast has prompted more baking and time in the kitchen lately! It's a wonderful opportunity to really connect with your children - and make a mess! But honestly, I'm okay with the mess if it results in a learning opportunity or just doing something with my girls. As they get older, I realize that time of endless hours in the day is becoming less and less. I really cherish the long snowdays when we're stuck inside! Lucky for me, we got SLAMMED with the Blizzard of 2015! We got a whopping 32 inches in my town - more snow than I can remember all at once and certainly the biggest snowfall in my girl's lives! So, we decided it was a great time to get some baking done! I'll be sharing some of our creations this week!
First up - Soft Baked Homemade Pretzels! We used this recipe from
Honest Pretzels: And 64 Other Amazing Recipes for Cooks Ages 8 +
We love that these pretzels are slightly crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside! We made 6 cinnamon sugar and the rest were slightly salted. So good for an afternoon treat!
