Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  • Mix water and sugar together in a bowl until sugar is dissolved; add yeast. Let mixture stand until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes.

  • Whisk flour, butter, and salt together in a bowl until well mixed; add yeast mixture and stir with a fork until dough starts to cling. Turn dough onto a floured work surface and knead until smooth.

  • Cut dough into 15 equal pieces and roll each piece between your hands into rope shapes at least the thickness of a pencil. Twist dough into desired shapes and arrange on a baking sheet; brush with egg and sprinkle coarse salt over each.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until pretzels are browned and cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes.

For those saying there isn't that pretzel taste, boil 4c water, add .25c baking soda and dip the pretzels before salting and baking. Read More

Was really craving giant pretzels, these were super quick and perfect! I mad pretzel rolls with them and dipped in yellow mustard and melted cheese. I couldn't get mine to go dark brown and was afraid of over cooking them so I'm sure that was user error not receive error. Over all I love it and will be saving this recepie for many more uses!

I really like this recipe but it's not fair to call it a pretzel recipe. these are really just bread or rolls shaped like pretzels. That being said these are great dinner rolls! the first time I made this recipe I followed it exactly except I ran out of white flour and used about 2.5 cups of whole wheat flour with 1.5 cups white flour. The result was delicious. This time I used all whole wheat flour and upped the sugar to about half a cup--I have a sweet tooth what can I say? I also skipped the pretzel shape and rolled them into balls. I had the perfect amount of dough for 20 balls in a 9x13 baking dish. Read More

I made this recipe as it was intended and I also used it to make food pockets a taco type pocket and a calzones. It is easy quick and the taste is good and with the addition of garlic butter and a little cheese on top they taste great! My kids love this recipe. Read More

So quick and easy and hardly any mess! Will make again! I added an egg as well. My kids wanted sweet pretzels so I brushed on melted butter and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. After they came out i drizzled cream cheese frosting on top. So yummy! Read More

My son just got braces so I had to find something soft. Love this easy recipe!!! It was soft and so pillowy. Do not over bake these. I had to bake mine at 400 degrees for 8 minutes. Read More
