Buttery Soft Glazed Cherry Pretzels


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! Smile

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 Smile


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 Smile 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.

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)
