How to Make Soft Pretzels


  1. While preheating oven to 425F degrees, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lay down a silicone baking mat.
  2. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water, stirring for about a minute. Add the salt and sugar and stir til combined. Slowly add flour, 1 cup at a time. Mix with a wooden spoon until dough is thick,continuing to add more flour until the dough is no longer sticky. Poke the dough with your finger - if it bounces back, it is ready to knead.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes and shape into a ball. With a sharp knife, cut the ball of dough into 1/2 cup sections.
  4. Roll the dough into a rope with an even diameter. Once you have your long rope (about 24 inches) take the rope and twist it into a pretzel shape.
  5. In a small bowl, beat the egg and pour into a pie dish. Dunk the shaped pretzel into the egg wash (both sides). Place on the baking sheet and sprinkle with salt.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes at 425 degrees. Turn the oven to broil and bake for 5 more minutes to brown the tops. Watch closely to avoid burning.
