We are providing an ingredients list and the recipe so you can be ready to cook along with the group.

BROOKLYN STYLE SOFT PRETZELS WITH DIJON DIP

By: Simply Creative Chef Rob Scott

Ingredients: Yields 6 pretzels and ½ cup sauce
1 cup whole milk-very important
1 package dry yeast fast acting
3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon fine salt
1/3 cup baking soda
2 tablespoons coarse pretzel salt
Dijon Dip:
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
½ teaspoon cider vinegar
Directions:
• To make the pretzels, warm the milk in a saucepan until it is about 110 degrees
• Pour into a medium bowl and sprinkle in the yeast
• Let the yeast soften about 2 minutes, stir in the brown sugar and 1 cup flour with a
wooden spoon
• Dice 2 tablespoons butter and soften and stir into the mix
• Add the remaining 1 ¼ cups flour and the fine salt to make a sticky dough
• Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead, adding more flour if
needed, until smooth but still slightly tacky, about 5 minutes
• Shape into a ball, place in a lightly greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap
• Let rise in a warm spot until doubled in size, about 1 hour
• To prepare the sauce: combine the mayonnaise, mustard, brown sugar, and vinegar in a
bowl
• Cover and refrigerate
• Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and grease a large baking sheet
• Punch the dough to deflate it and then turn out onto a lightly floured surface (if the
dough seems tight, cover and let rest, until it relaxes)

• Divide the dough into 6 pieces
• Roll and stretch each piece with the palms of your hands into a 12-inch rope, holding
the ends and slapping the middle of the rope on the counter as your stretch
•Form each rope into a pretzel shape or pretzel twist or nuggets
• Dissolve the baking soda in 3 cups warm water in a shallow baking dish
•Gently dip each pretzel in the soda solution, then arrange on the prepared baking sheet
and sprinkle with the coarse salt or cinnamon sugar
•Bake until golden, 10-12 minutes but check around the 8 minute mark
• Serve the pretzels warm with the sweet Dijon dip
Note: place aluminum foil on the rack above the pretzels so pretzels do not get too dark – check in about 8 minutes in to the total cooking time.
