Yum – doesn’t that sound good!! While I had a couple days to chill out before I head back to NW Arkansas Friday after lunch to be with my mom again for a couple days I have been relaxing. What better way than to make some homemade goodies and stuff my face!
I was looking at the Pioneer Woman’s blog and from there went to the Tasty Kitchen and found the recipe for Buttery Soft Glazed Raisin Pretzels – I have some dried Cherries in the house so I used those instead – so glad I did they were wonderful. Follow the link on the name of the recipe and I’m not going to type it in! All I changed was dried cherries instead of raisins.
The recipe only makes 8 but they are good size – brush the tops with melted butter and then drizzle on some frosting while they are hot. Better than fat greasy doughnuts – these are baked in the oven – no added fat to the recipe, just flour, yeast, a dab of sugar and salt and water. I haven’t a clue on the calories with the butter and frosting on the top – but yummy!
I know mine kind of lost the pretzel shape – I’ll try harder next time
I am scheduling this post for Thursday – I will be in Little Rock for the day. I have my six month check up which is routine for the medications I take to keep the muscle disease under control – no problems – just routine — all that blood work you know. And it is our older daughters 39 birthday – Melanie works in North Little Rock and couldn’t get the day off we will see her for a late lunch/early supper she can meet us at 4 in the afternoon. It is supposed to be a great day weather wise – up to 78 degrees in the city.
Doubtful I will get any sewing done today – I will post from my mom’s at some point over the weekend. I always bring the computer with me and I have wireless connection from my phone. My way of relaxing.
