Chewy Soft Pretzels

 Roll about 20" wide.

 Swing right side to the middle.

 Swing left side and cross over the right side.

 Cornstarch bath in HOT water and cornstarch.

Bake & top with melted butter and whatever toppings you like.

4 t yeast
1 t sugar
1 1/4 c warm water
4 c flour
1/2 c sugar
1 1/2 t salt
1 T olive oil
1/2 c baking soda
4 c hot water
1/4 c kosher salt, for topping
Dissolve yeast and 1 t sugar in warm water. Let stand until it foams and bubbles, about 10 minutes. In your bread machine bowl, put in 1/2 c sugar, salt, olive oil.  Measure 4 c flour on top of the moist mixture and start the dough cycle.  When the timer goes off, divide the dough into 12 equal parts.  Roll each out like a snake about 20 or so inches wide.  Form into a pretzel.  Dip into baking soda warm water (I mix soda and water and JUST bring to a barely simmer and turn the burner off) for about 30 seconds and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Bake in a preheated oven of 400 degrees for 8 minutes, until browned.
