  3. Add the butter and sugar to the hot milk. Stir until the butter melts and the sugar has dissolved. Set it aside and cool until just warm.

  6. Cover the bowl with a clean dish towel and allow it to rise for one hour, or until the dough doubles in size. Then punch down the dough in the bowl.

  7. Turn the ball of dough out onto a cutting board. Cut the dough into 10 equal pieces. If you are looking to make smaller pretzels, cut the dough into smaller pieces. This will give you more small pretzels. You need a decent size piece of dough to make the large, skinny pretzels that are Auntie Anne’s signature.

  8. Preheat the oven to 450 F. Roll a piece of the dough into a long and very skinny rope, about 36 inches long.

  10. Pull the ends back over the loop to make the classic pretzel shape pressing the ends to make them stick.

  11. Whisk together 2 cups of warm water and the baking soda in a shallow dish. Dip the pretzels into the baking soda bath. Flip and dip the other side.
