Auntie Anne’s Style Soft Pretzels

aunt annies soft pretzels

1 Bag of Kroger Brand Frozen dough – use 2 loaves to make about 10 pretzels (I think there are 4 or 5 loaves in a bag)
1 stick of salted butter
1 Cup of Cinnamon & Sugar Mixture
Pretzel salt or Large Kosher Sea Salt
1 large Large Cookie Sheet
1/2 cup of Baking Soda
2 cups of Hot Water
Sit dough out and let it rise to about double its size. I use two loaves to make pretzels.
Preheat oven to 400 and spray baking sheeting with pam
Use a pizza cutter to cut dough and then roll it out in to pretzel shapes.
You can use flour to work the dough and keep it from sticking. If you don’t know how to roll pretzels you can do balls, or twists.
HERE’S THE BIG SECRET!! ~ In a medium size bowl mix together warm/hot water with about 1/2 cup of baking soda. Keep a wisk handy to stir as the baking soda will settle to the bottom.
After you roll your pretzels dip them one at a time in the baking soda mix then pat on a towel and place on your baking sheet. If you would like salted pretzels go ahead and salt them.
Bake 8 minutes and turn the pan and bake for another 5 minutes.
Depending on the size of your pretzels the time may vary. While they are baking go ahead and melt butter in a bowl (we use a shallow pasta bowl that is a little larger than our pretzels). We also use the same size bowl for our cinnamon sugar mixture
After your pretzels are finished baking use spatula to loosen them from your pan and use tongs to dip them one at a time in the butter. If your making salted place them in a pan to drain…if you have a big roasting pan use that and place them on a rack and let butter drain into the pan.
For your cinnamon dip them in butter then dip in cinnamon sugar and coat really well. Then place in the pan….your all done! You can also try different toppings: garlic powder, icing, ect.

Bulletproof Coffee

bulletproof coffee

Many people who follow the Paleo lifestyle swear by a drink called “BULLETPROOF COFFEE” to increase satiety first thing.

1 cup of Strong Coffee
1 Tbs. of Butter
1 Tbs Coconut oil
*Stevia (optional)

Make the coffee(black)
Add the Butter and Coconut Oil
Add Stevia if needed.
Put in blender and blend until frothy.

The combination of fats melts into the coffee and creates a decadent coffeehouse-style drink.

The Perks?
You get CLA from the butter and medium-chain fatty acids from the coconut oil. These are super high-quality fats that actually turn off our fat-storing genes and switch on our fat-burning genes.
