Dinner Rolls (Pretzel Wash) from Smitten Kitchen

walker | Nov 16, 201404:26 PM     3

I just made a double recipe of this and doubled everything EXCEPT neglected to divide into more than 16 rolls. After the first rise, I cut each in half.

Since I'm afraid to deal with lye, I did the baking soda wash, first toasting (it doesn't brown) the baking soda in the oven for over an hour. Later on when you mix the baking soda with boiling water it's supposed to foam up. Mine didn't, maybe because it was toasted? It came from a brand new pkg of baking soda.

Half got a sprinkle of sesame, half w/Maldon salt. They look and smell good but I haven't tried yet. Has anyone ever used lye?
