Cinnamon Sugar Soft Pretzels

In 20 years, we will still be talking about the storm that hit Chicago last night – the 3rd worst storm in history.  You can see pictures of it here.

I love a good snow day.  A day where appointments are cancelled and the car doesn’t have to leave the house.  Snow days are meant for lots of baking and slow cooked meals.  I kept it pretty simple today, even though I had lots on my wish list.  This morning I made 2 loaves of water challah and this afternoon we all made these amazing pretzels. 

The recipe is here:

I doubled it, divided the dough into 12 pieces and they were so long that I divided it again.  The kids made most of the pretzels so they were all different shapes and sizes, it was great!

Don’t tell anyone, but I had thirds!! :)

Macie found a new use for those pockets that Rachael Ray puts on her towels…(I know they are supposed to be pot holders, I just still think they are weird)
