Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

These came out a little dry. Taste was ok, but they definitely needed a dip

It makes good food, but definitely not a pretzel... I will make again but as bread sticks with garlic butter and parmesan on it.

I enjoyed the speed of this recipe, but like other reviewers it did not have that iconic pretzel taste. I tried adding the step of boiling the pretzels in the baking soda, but it made very littl...
