Mickey Pretzel Rolls – Made easy!

One of my favorite indulgences at Walt Disney World was the pretzel bread at Le Cellier in Epcot’s Canada Pavilion. This warm bread had a smooth, crisp crust, warm, soft center and was topped with course kosher salt. We hungrily gobbled up every piece in our breadbasket and begged for more! I had to recreate this delicacy at home, but how?

I put my own twist on this Disney classic by created Mickey Pretzel Rolls. I have to admit, they are not as good as the real thing at Le Cellier, but they are delicious will satisfy the craving until we can visit again.

 

Mickey Mouse Pretzel Rolls

 

  • 1 Tbsp, active dry yeast
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 ¾ cups whole-wheat flour
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 6 cups cold water
  • 5 tsp. baking soda

 

Place yeast, sugar, salt, flour and butter in a food processor. Pulse until butter is cut into dry ingredients. Add warm water, process until a soft dough forms, adding a little more water as needed. Turn out into a greased bowl; cover and let rise until double. Punch down dough; form into tennis ball size-buns. Place buns on parchment paper-lined baking sheets; cover and let rise again until almost double. Heat cold water over high heat, add baking soda and bring to a boil. Drop buns, three at a time, into the boiling water. Boil for 40 seconds on each side. Remove buns from water and place them on a baking sheet lined with a silpat. Bake at 474 for 8-12 minutes. Top with course kosher salt.

Give these a try and let me know what you think! BTW, I’m applying for the Disney Moms Panel for 2012 for runDisney, please PRAY that I get selected!! This would be my dream!!
